City and County of Denver

Civil Engineering Intern

June - August 2019 • Denver, CO

What I liked

It was a very nurturing and understanding internship that I felt comfortable having being only 2 years through school. It was also cool, I love the airport. I had a great supervisor. They also let you meet and network with other interns, which was very fun and rewarding.

What I wish was different

The older engineers were generally stuck in their ways and unwilling to give the interns work. I wish there were a more integrated plan to give interns work and experience.

Advice

Be your own advocate. City government is very slow, so you have to consciously look for work and experience or you'll have a slow and boring summer and learn nothing. I feel like I learned a lot because I was constantly looking for things to do, which gave me a very broad perspective and a ton of great experience. Other interns for the city were content to just coast, and I think their experience was not as rewarding as mine.

What I liked

Creating fun and educational activities with my team members for the community children that were in the summer camp

What I wish was different

Advice

Working with kids requires patients and care. Plus they want to see you having fun too. It makes a difference when you treat the job like a paycheck rather than just showing up and have fun with the kids
