The goal of our Foreman-in-Training Internship Program is to give you a strong foundation to become a leader in our industry.

Interns will be assigned an executive mentor, who will provide high-level perspective and coaching throughout the program.

The Foreman-in-Training Program will take you through a
curriculum focused on developing your ability to plan, track, and direct construction work, including:

  • Basic training on our operations software, which is used by leaders in the field and by project managers to bid new work.
  • Learn how we plan, cost, and track work through on-the-job training on our active projects.
  • Apply your training in the active work environment as part of a team.

Work Assignment

  • Locations vary by project. Summer 2020 internships will
    include work at our headquarters in Mendon, VT, experience with utility work, road construction, and mass excavation.
  • We typically bid work in Vermont and its surrounding areas in New York and New Hampshire.
  • Students will be compensated hourly for their time and will be provided with hotel accommodation and/or mileage reimbursement if required by the job.

Training & mentoring

You will be assigned a supervisor and a peer mentor, who will walk you through the daily work of a construction foreman. You are in the driver’s seat of your own learning, and will do the work of tracking progress and profitability on actual projects.
