I chose to intern with Granger because I saw that they were doing work on EMU’s campus and that they were going to be at the fall career fair. I made sure to stop by and talk to them and give them my resume. When I started interviewing with them, I realized that they seemed to care about their employees and wanted me to benefit as much as possible from an internship. This made me want to intern with Granger and so far I have really enjoyed it.
Before starting, I was most excited to be on site and truly be a part of something bigger than myself. I wanted to learn what it takes to be a project engineer/manager and everything that goes into a project’s completion. I had no idea what roles I would be taking on, and I was hoping I would be a useful part of the team and really help with the job’s progress.
My favorite part of my internship so far has been seeing the work being done where I go to school. It has been really interesting to see how much work can get done to change a campus over the course of the summer, and I think it will be cool to see the completed projects on campus and know I was a part of them.
I would tell other students to take the opportunity to intern with Granger if it is given to them. The people you work with are great, at least in my experience, and they want you to succeed and be a vital part of the project’s completion.
