Real-World Industry Experience Through a Virtual Internship Program – Part 2
In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, our University Relations team adapted our internship program in the United States and Canada through enhanced virtual collaboration, learning and mentorship opportunities. In the first part of this series, we shared how the program was reshaped to provide a valuable experience to the interns, even while participating remotely. This second part focuses on the program’s future, what our interns learned over the course of the summer and the impact the program had on their career planning.
Where do you see the program going from here?
While we look forward to returning to an in-person workforce soon, we are dedicated to finding the smartest and most innovative thinkers from across the U.S. and Canada. Our plan at the moment is to continue hosting a virtual program as part of our larger internship offering, even after in-person meetings return.
To stay on top of all that AECOM has to offer, we invite students interested in interning to participate in our weekly speaker sessions and maintain an active network of discussion via AECOM social media channels. You can also find out more information by visiting https://aecom.com/careers.
