Langan Engineering and Environmental Services

Site/Civil Engineering Intern

May - August 2019 • New York City, NY

What I liked

I loved the projects I worked on, teams I worked with and the training I received!

What I wish was different

I wish there was more time for more training and practice! Otherwise, it was an amazing experience

Advice

Advice I would give is to be humble and open to learning new things. It’s ok to make mistakes while you’re learning but you have to ask your team for help. Ask questions, all the questions!

Marketing and Business Development Intern

February 2018 - April 2019 • Philadelphia, PA

What I liked

It gave me the opportunity to work with senior management, as well as make a real impact in the organization.

I wish that I didn't have to perform as many clerical responsibilities.

Advice

You may be surprised how much you enjoy an industry that you never considered when looking at jobs.

Business Development Intern

June 2019 • Miami Lakes, FL

What I liked

They provide workshops often on different engineering disciplines that are fun to attend and are very informative and good to benefit on. The workshops include free lunch that which is a plus!

What I wish was different

Maybe in my area as being in the Business development department, might get a bit slow sometimes and they might not have much work for you, so sometimes you just don't have anything to do.

Advice

Try and talk to everybody in the office, everyone is really cool and will always be willing to help you whatever it is you are doing. Also don't be afraid to rotate in between areas or discipline, always be available to go to the field and you will learn a lot.

Environmental Consulting Intern

June - August 2018 • Philadelphia, PA

What I liked

Getting hands on experience with field work.

What I wish was different

I wish I had known who to start talking to in the beginning of my time there to ensure I had made the right connections and had the optimal experience (i.e. have the chance to explore more regions of the company to get a better feel for the industry).

Advice

Make sure to speak up early and often as to what you want to work on and why. Having the opportunity to explore the industry through a company like this does not come too often and it certainly doesn't hurt to put yourself out there and go for what you think you might like. Much better to do that during an internship than to find out half way through your career that you don't like what you do!

Co-op

January - August 2016 • Canonsburg, PA

What I liked

The internship was great in that there was plenty of work to be done. Once I proved that I was capable, I was given more work than I knew what to do with, which was great experience. They also pay over-time at time and a half if you work more than 40 hours, so you're fairly compensated for the work that you do.

What I wish was different

I wish I had been given the opportunity to move around between departments more. The office has geotechnical, environmental, land development, and traffic and I ended up spending all my time in land development even though I was originally told that I could bounce from department to department.

Advice

Don't be afraid to ask for work - they won't keep you busy unless they know you aren't.

Advice

Don't be afraid to ask questions?

Site / Civil Co Op

May - August 2018 • Canonsburg, PA

What I liked

The people, the long-term projects I got to work on, field experience

What I wish was different

More long term projects

Advice

Be patient in the beginning and during slow times. You will have slow times and time where the work you're doing feels kind of pointless, but it will pay off when you get to be involved in bigger projects that are more rewarding.
