Do you want to gain experience that amps up your LinkedIn profile? When you are part of Kitchell’s Intern Academy, you have the opportunity to learn about building processes encompassing everything from estimating to operations. Every summer we hire interns from construction engineering programs throughout the country, as well as candidates who fill important support roles on our project teams.

Get an introduction to the building industry

Several of our employee-owners began their careers with Kitchell as interns, working on projects and engaging with our culture through the summer months. Oftentimes this gives someone just enough time to get a feel for Kitchell as a permanent workplace post-graduation.

Real project experience

Our interns get real-world experience by joining job teams on active projects, embedding with teams working on public programs and taking an active role in jobsite operations.

Learn about employee ownership

Our corps of 1,100-plus employee-owners are accountable to each other, to our clients and to the bottom line. With a summer experience at Kitchell, you’ll learn how this sense of ownership permeates throughout our workforce, and hopefully you’ll want to be a part of it after you graduate!

Meet our people

We have professionals who take great pride in their work and can inspire you to build value in your future.

Engage with the community

Kitchell is engaged and committed to our local communities, through volunteerism, fundraising and FUN. Join us for a summer and learn how and why investing in your local communities is an important part of building your resumé.

Understand our diversity

Kitchell’s diversity is much more than skin deep. With five distinct operating companies, we cover every part of the built environment: construction and program management, design-build, commercial development , facilities management, engineering/architecture services and many more. With an internship at Kitchell you’ll understand why diversity of services is important to our future and the bottom line.
