Lendlease has a long history of constructing some of the most iconic buildings in Chicago and around the globe.  They offer amazing careers and are looking to hire students currently enrolled in an Undergrad program OR Master’s Degree Program, to become Summer Associates/Interns, in their company.

The Chicago managers are willing to hire either an undergrad OR a student currently enrolled in their master’s. Please see the attached description and flyer for full details!

This is an update to an announcement I posted in the Fall. Next Step Ministries offers a summer internship program that allows students to use their skills on the mission field, designing and building homes for communities in need. 

They still have Construction Manger and Construction Team Member positions available. Please see the attached flyer for details on these positions. This could be a great opportunity for a student who has not found a summer internship.

The students are hosting a mini conference on campus (in the Yeh Center) on Saturday, February 25th from 10:00am – 2:00pm.  The purpose of the conference is to give students a better feel for how the water/wastewater industry works, what the different career paths are, and what education/experience are helpful to begin a career in this field.  We’ll have speakers from all different areas of the field – engineering consulting, public sector operators, private sector engineers, and manufacturing.  I’ve attached a flyer for full details. It is a free event, and all majors, ages, backgrounds, etc are welcome!
