“Throughout this time, I have been given more responsibilities that have made me step out of my comfort zone, strengthen skills, and develop new ones. Most importantly, I have been able to identify my strengths and weaknesses and learn how to lean on and be a resource to my peers.”

Moises Bobadilla

Carly-Cliff Derosier

Civil Analyst, Structural

“I learned so many things on the technical side of the job, but I think the greatest thing I learned was the importance of communicating and asking questions. As I’ve transitioned into a full-time role, I’m very glad I was able to learn those skills during my internships, making it easier for me to learn and grow now.”

Elizabeth Dogbe

Civil Analyst, Transit
“Although my level of responsibility has changed, I’m not sure that my role is all that different 15 years down the road: I’m still expected to serve clients in an exceptional way as part of a team.”

Aaron Heustess

Engineer, Transportation/TPTO
“In the beginning, I needed nearly constant guidance to move forward on tasks. Now, my whole week is filled with tasks; at first, I was intimidated by the amount of trust I’d been given. I even called my PM before I would reply to emails or send final drafts, and he told me, “You know this stuff; go for it.” That was empowering and humbling.”
