Power Design hosted 27 interns on the GRID this Summer, representing 13 universities across the United States and for the first time ever – Canada! Over the course of the Summer, our #PDInterns spent time working across multiple departments at Power Design; from our Engineering division to our Legal team, these scholars learned from some of the best mentors in the industry!
As Summer came to a close and school back in session, we caught up with a couple of our #PDInterns to see what the highlight of their internship was – Meet Caitlyn Them and Lisa Han!
What are you most proud of accomplishing during your internship?
I take immense pride in the work I was able to contribute to my job sites, one in Denver and one in Phoenix. There is no feeling like visiting a job site and being able to see all of your hard work come to life. I am very thankful for the whole Power Design team for making this opportunity a reality. – Caitlyn
I am proud of all the project contributions I have made as an intern. I am also proud of myself for completing my first internship – I had no idea what to expect this summer, but I am happy with how amazing my experience has been at Power Design. – Lisa
What skills are you leaving with that you learned or developed?
I had little to no experience with electrical work, but I was excited to try something new. Through the trainings that Power Design provided and with help from my team, I was able to learn a lot about Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing. I am leaving with an enhanced knowledge of MEP, along with stronger communication skills, time management skills, and an increased understanding of PDI best practices. – Caitlyn
I have not only learned a lot about new softwares that I haven’t yet touched on in my courses, but I have also learned a lot more about the construction industry. I also attended many engineering training sessions that align with the content I learn within my major. – Lisa
What will you miss most about being on the GRID?
I will miss all of the opportunities that Power Design provided! Whether it’s on-campus amenities, or trainings, Power Design will do just about anything to see their employees flourish and grow in their careers. – Caitlyn
I will miss all the people! I will miss working on projects with my team and spending time with all the interns that were here with me this summer. – Lisa
With over 115 Interns since 2015, Power Design’s internship program continues to grow and provide valuable experience for students looking to launch their careers in the construction industry. Check out our Intern Interview video, below!
