Kyle’s Intern Experience: Last Weeks and Intern Summit

As the internship came to a close this summer, Alberici invited all of their interns to join them for an Intern Summit. This summit was the 2nd annual event, and was a two-day event at Alberici headquarters. All of the interns from all of Alberici’s enterprises, from Alberici Constructors Inc., to Flintco to Alberici Constructors Ltd. in Canada came to St. Louis for this event.

The first day’s theme was “Who We Are” and was based around all of the markets that Alberici enterprises are involved in and all of the services they offer to help with the construction process. It was great to see all of this diversity in the work Alberici does, as it was one of the reasons why I chose to work with Alberici in the first place! Some of the projects that were introduced were very interesting, and gave all of us a glimpse of what our potential future with Alberici looked like!

The second day’s theme was “Why Choose Us?”  This day was another packed day with a lot of cool events. We started off the day touring a local project site, and I was lucky enough to see the Route 47 Bridge that I helped with putting the bid together for the previous summer! They were making great progress on the bridge, and it was cool to see how much had changed in one year.  Upon returning to main office, we got a glimpse at the cool technologies being used in construction today. After lunch, we got to hear from a lot of different people about their experiences with Alberici. I even got the opportunity to share my experiences from the two previous summers!  It was great to hear everyone’s perspectives on working with Alberici, but what was even cooler is how positively everyone spoke about their time with Alberici!

While we did a lot of learning throughout the day, we had the opportunity to network with some great people throughout the two days. The night before the summit, some of us met at a go-kart track and had a friendly competition. I didn’t race so well, but it was great to just take some time and get to know the people I was working with a little bit better. Also, after the first day of the summit, we all took a bus to a St. Louis Cardinals game. It was a great game, and we got to see a walk off win for the Cardinals!

After the summit, I flew back to Detroit and finished up my summer. It was a great experience to work in the automotive market, and I was able to work with so many great people in an environment where I could learn so much about construction! I have really enjoyed my past two summers with Alberici, and I hope that you might consider Alberici for your internship!
