Internship programs are a great opportunity for those new to the workforce to deepen their knowledge and gain first-hand experience as they launch their career. For companies, interns can bring a fresh perspective and new ideas to the team to help improve their processes and practices.
At SitelogIQ, we’re proud to work with interns throughout each of our business units and across the country. Our internship opportunities can range from Operations, IT, Engineering, Development, Construction Management, Marketing, and more.
Here’s a deeper look into our Internship Program:
Day in the Life of a SIQ Intern
With opportunities that span business units and departments, we strive to create a robust internship program at SitelogIQ. Each position is designed to provide hands-on experience in areas that help drive success for our company and our customers throughout the K-12, higher education, local/state government, healthcare, multifamily, manufacturing, distribution, hospitality, automotive, retail, and industrial markets. In their positions, our interns gain real-life experience, working on projects that help us make buildings and communities better through energy efficiency and facility improvements.
Just this summer, we welcomed 19 interns. We recently connected with them to hear, firsthand, about their internship experience:
I am on-site overseeing an active construction site, while also doing a few project manager tasks. Internships I’ve had in the past didn’t give me many tasks to do. Here at SitelogIQ, I am given numerous tasks each day, and I feel like an important part of the project. I enjoy this internship because it allows me to learn many things that I would never learn in a classroom setting. Each day I gain experience that I can use later in my career.
– Matthew B., Northeast Construction Management Intern
In my day-to-day, I help all the engineers with various projects. That includes anything from putting together install drawings to coding in Excel VBA to create new tools for the team.
– Reaves G., Healthcare Solution Developer Intern
My day-to-day roles consist of supporting team members with help in the field and office, writing daily logs for three different schools in the Pennridge School District, and helping with the communication of information and questions between the contractors and school officials/employees.
– Shane K., Northeast Operations Intern
In my day-to-day, I have primarily focused on project estimation and proposals for EV chargers, but I have also spent a lot of time researching municipality codes and building requirements, as well as rebate programs. I am excited daily by working with bright minds who strive to move SitelogIQ forward. I have also had real responsibilities and deliverables, which makes me value the work I put into each of my projects.
– Griffin F., C&I Operations Support Intern
Interns also benefit from building mentor relationships throughout the company as well as participating in ongoing trainings and learning opportunities, such as our IQ University program where they meet with the Senior Leadership Team and learn more about our history, teams, initiatives, and goals and how they can positively impact our communities on and off the job site.
In addition to the project-related work our interns play a role in, they also have the opportunity to participate in companywide and local events and initiatives that focus on giving back to the communities we serve. These includes events such as our Back-to-School Backpack Drive, One Tree Planted, and Feed by Starving Children, along with many others.
Why Become a SIQ Intern?
At SitelogIQ, our internship program provides interns with real-experience and expert knowledge in their field as well as the opportunity to gain life-long mentors and opportunities to positively impact the customers and communities we serve. Our interns are encouraged to share fresh perspectives, ideas, and problem-solving solutions to help us create successful outcomes.
We believe that every team member makes a positive impact on the work that we do, and that our work matters, and that begins with our internship program. Don’t just take our word for it – hear from more of our interns about what they gained from their time at SitelogIQ:
My SitelogIQ internship has helped me fully understand what I am learning and how I would be using that knowledge from my college career.
– Kyle H., Northeast Construction Management Intern
I decided to join SitelogIQ’s team this summer as a base point in my career journey, a kickstart for business ideology and understanding. I have always had a profound interest in engineering/architecture/building improvement but never truly studied any field. SitelogIQ puts forth an ideal format to create such connections and a portfolio for personal betterment, which drew me in to enlarge my knowledge and experience as a part of this team.
– Alex G., Northeast Operations Support Intern
The people I work with at SIQ inspire me to become a better team member by giving me feedback for improvement and seeing them work together has kept me motivated.
– Lauren H., Northeast Engineering Intern
