”This internship smashed my expectations. I had way more fun than expected, truly enjoyed showing up to work every day, and gained more knowledge than I have in years of school. An added bonus was the housing accommodations, which were awesome as I made a lot of valuable connections.
”I was expecting to learn the Design/Build Manager role from the office through tasks that were low risk. I thought I would be completing more takeoffs/estimates than what I actually ended up doing, which was essentially taking over the buyout phase of a project. My expectations were exceeded mostly because of the trust I was given and the lessons I learned from it. I could not
have asked for a better co-op/internship.
”I expected a “stiff” desk job setting since most of my professors in civil are a little stiff, but ARCO made learning about the process fun. I enjoyed everything from the people, the atmosphere, and the professionalism among people close to my own age. It made seeing myself in a position in the company very easy, and it made completing the work more memorable and valuable.
