School: St. Clair County Community College
What are you looking to get out of this internship?
In this internship, I am looking to learn more about safety in the construction industry. Before I started, I knew there was a lot of rules OSHA had, but I had no idea how extreme and serious it was to follow all these rules until I started working. I am looking to meet new people and learn just about everything, from how to operate machinery to pouring concrete.
What goals do you have within the construction industry?
My goal is to eventually go to operators’ school and become an operator. Ever since the first time I got to operate a machine a couple months ago, that’s all I’ve been wanting to do.
What has been the best experience in the Build U Internship Program so far?
The best experience so far in this internship was getting the opportunity to operate three different machines, two excavators and a crane, at the operators’ engineering school.
