John Burns’ Internship Program is a 10-12 week summer program for undergraduate and graduate-level students. Our Internship Program provides relevant work experience for talented young professionals interested in the construction industry. John Burns’ Interns participate in a wide range of experiences throughout the summer. One of our biggest offerings to Interns is the opportunity to participate in a predefined schedule consisting of jobsite visits, team building outings, charity events, and assisting the project team in daily tasks and assignments. This predefined schedule for specific job‐related training and task will be determined by each Intern’s assigned Supervisor.

“John Burns’ Intern Program is structured, informative, and fun! The work is rewarding, the people are humble, and everyone is working towards a common goal.”  – 2022 Summer Intern
