Being an EDGE Intern, I saw a glimpse into the career I wanted to pursue after graduation. Gaining hands-on experience while working with a great team, I am forever grateful to have been chosen to be an intern for two summers.
The best part of my EDGE experience was working in a team of different age groups because they all have a unique way of relaying information. I also learned that it’s ok to be wrong because that allows you to ask more questions to learn how to be better in the future.
I really enjoyed working in a professional setting like CCG. I didn’t know what to expect and I am happy I got to experience it. I learned collaborating with others is key.
Something I wish I’d known before my internship, is that you shouldn’t be worried about not knowing things going in. The whole point is to learn and if you put in the work to get better and learn as much as possible, you will be successful.
The best part of the intern experience was getting acquainted with the processes associated with being on-site and being so close to home. I learned how to communicate with subcontractors and the overall construction process much more effectively.
CCG has given me a major confidence boost in knowing that I can handle myself on a jobsite and has allowed me to understand how to gain the most knowledge from every situation.
CCG is all about personal and professional growth, and that is what really makes it a great place to work.
Not only will you have the opportunity to expand your professional skills, but you will also be able to grow as a person.
Every internship ends with the ‘crane climb.’ A 200ft ladder climb and a reflection of your growth at CCG.
It’s all about who you know. As an EDGE intern, you will have the chance to network with the best people in the industry.
