Weigand Construction Co., Inc.

Business Development Coordinator

May 2019 • Fort Wayne, IN

What I liked

Having an internship with Weigand in 2018 helped me get plugged into the business and learn my way around the company. That experience also led to a job offer! My career is full of busy times, slow times, stressful times, and rewarding times! At this point in my life, I can't see myself working anywhere else... It's such a good fit for me!

What I wish was different

I wouldn't have asked for anything different, my new career with Weigand is great! The experience working in a company such as this has made my transition from college super easy.

Advice

The workplace and the classroom are very different. Both have their strengths, but internships and professional experiences in the field of your choosing can help make your post-college life so much smoother. While not every experience is perfect (I've had my fair share of bad internships), there's always something new and exciting to learn somewhere, so keep looking!

Construction Project Management Intern

May - August 2019 • Fort Wayne, IN

What I liked

This internship was extremely helpful for me expanding my horizon on a career standpoint and personal standpoint. I learned a great deal of the construction industry and process with this internship.

What I wish was different

I wished this internship was on the job site helping and more into details. Other interns got this luxury of being on site, but I did not.

Advice

Be a sponge. There was so much I did not know going into this internship and in just 3 months I learned a great deal of information and processes.
