WASHINGTON, D.C. — Louis Berger commemorated the completion of its summer internship program with a presentation luncheon hosted at the firm’s Washington, D.C., office, where interns had the opportunity to share their contributions to projects that involved a number of disciplines, including architecture, engineering, human resources, industrial hygiene and procurement. One intern was offered a part-time position with the firm.
The luncheon marked the first milestone in the firm's first centralized internship program. Grounded in Louis Berger’s corporate values, the program was primarily designed to recruit the most talented students from universities in the mid-Atlantic region and invest in their professional development by creating a work-integrated learning environment where students can explore potential professions.
"Our founder Dr. Louis Berger’s belief in education and training has been fundamental to Louis Berger's promise to provide solutions for a better world," said John Pryor, vice president and director of human resources. “Furthermore, our investment in students' development can yield an excellent return if they are ultimately selected as permanent hires."
At Louis Berger, employees are encouraged to share their ideas and then given the tools and resources necessary to implement them. Similarly, Louis Berger's interns have opportunities to contribute to real projects that stimulate their learning, allowing them to leave a mark on the company and the world.
"My internship experience thus far has been invaluable," said Travis Lacey, urban facilities intern. "By participating in real projects and interacting with clients, I’ve been able to see first-hand how Louis Berger contributes to society, while receiving the needed professional building blocks for my future."
Before the internship program launched in January, 2015, there were disparate internship initiatives across Louis Berger’s operating companies. The program was created to integrate these initiatives as well as develop strategic relationships with U.S. colleges and universities.
Louis Berger offers a wide range of opportunities to work on projects that have powerful and positive impacts on people, communities and the environment.
