Meet the Miron Interns: Brad Ausloos & Brooke Scott

Posted on by Miron Construction

Internships are a great opportunity to gain real world professional experience before graduation. Each summer, Miron Construction welcomes a number of interns to work in all areas of our company. Every intern’s experience is unique. Rather than us tell you about it, we have invited ten interns to share their journeys on our blog over the next few months. In previous posts, we met Bryce and Clint, Holly and Travis, and Dennis and Zach. Today, we introduce Brad and Brooke.

Brad Ausloos – Project Management Intern

 

Brad Ausloos-Miron-Intern-1Tell us a little about yourself.

My name is Brad Ausloos. This fall I will be entering my junior year at UW-Stout where I am pursuing a degree in Construction.

 

How long have you been an intern with Miron? 

This is my second year with Miron. I chose to come back because I had a great experience during my first internship. The people at Miron are awesome and you can tell that they really want you to learn as much as you can during the summer. When I wasn’t onsite, the workers in the office were always asking me questions to get to know me and giving me advice. It is refreshing for a young person in construction to know that you have many resources in the office that are very approachable and will help you out. I also chose to come back because I learned so much from being onsite. Being onsite every day got me familiar with different aspects of construction that I have not been able to see before this internship. Overall, I think Miron is a great company and I really enjoy being part of the team!

 

When did you first become interested in a career in construction?

I first became interested in construction when I got my first job at a concrete company. During the summer I would work in the shop at the company and I began to really like that kind of work. Then, during my junior year of high school, I took a construction class where we had the opportunity to build dugouts for the JV baseball team. It was very neat to see the project progress over the semester and I started to really think about a job in construction. My teacher mentioned the construction program at UW-Stout and he thought I would be interested. Once I toured the University and met with the program director, I knew that I wanted to pursue construction as a career.

 

What are you hoping to learn in your internship with Miron?

This summer I am on the same project site as last year. Last summer I worked on some of the front-end items on a project like submittals, insurance, and getting subcontractors on site. This summer I want to work on some of the closeout items. I also want to learn more about budgeting on a project and become more familiar with tracking work.

Brooke Scott – Project Management Intern

 

Brooke Scott-Miron-Intern-1Tell us a little about yourself.

Hello, my name is Brooke Scott. I go to Milwaukee School of Engineering. I am going to be a Junior and I am majoring in Architectural Engineering and Construction Management.

 

How long have you been an intern with Miron? 

This is my first summer with Miron Construction.  I choose Miron because of its great reputation in the industry.  Miron’s reputation for treating its employees and customers like family is a company I want to work for.  I was also really attracted to the way Miron taught their interns valuable information and skills for their future careers.

 

When did you first become interested in a career in construction?

After talking with Miron at my college’s annual career fair. With the way the Miron representatives explained their roles and talked about the company, it made me really interested in the industry.

 

What are you hoping to learn in your internship with Miron?

I am hoping to learn more about the construction process and how to think like a project manager. I am working out in the field this summer, so I am hoping to gain more insight into how things are built and how the projects come together with our partners in the industry.

 

Thanks, Brad and Brooke. Check back next week to meet two more Miron interns who will be joining our blog for the summer.
