On the Job
Training at Kimley-Horn is not limited to the classroom. Our firm is passionate about providing hands-on, on-the-job training both in the office and out in the field. These opportunities begin early in your career, and we believe it is some of the most vital training you will receive. Though our firm spans the country, we all share in each other’s success. Employees may have the opportunity to shift to another office to work on projects. Shifting refers to our practice of sharing staff resources throughout the firm to work on client projects. It is a cornerstone of Kimley-Horn culture that helps the firm meet its client commitments while also providing a valuable opportunity for you to learn, interact with colleagues, and expand your network within the firm.
Hear from Our Employees:
Having come from other firms, this type of training was not something I was introduced to early in my career, and had to learn on my own over many years. I think it is invaluable to have this resource for our up-and-coming stars, and it offers them the opportunity to be more knowledgeable than their peers in the industry. I am honored that I can play a role in helping the next generation!

Attending Fundamentals of Consulting made it very clear that Kimley-Horn really invests in our careers, providing us with the skills and resources necessary to be successful. I returned to the office with much clearer goals and enthusiasm to get more involved.
