Internships provide a great opportunity to gain real-world, professional experience before graduation. Each summer, Miron welcomes more than 40 interns to work in all areas of our company, with the general goal of offering several of those individuals permanent employment upon graduation.
Freshmen and sophomores, we want you too! More than half of the interns we bring on are first- or second-year students.
Each intern is assigned a mentor and is stationed on one of our project sites or in an office setting to learn our policies, practices, and philosophies while also having a chance to engage with field personnel.
Your internship with Miron will provide the opportunity to spend time in the field, where we’ll teach you how to build. You will be given hands-on experience at high-profile project sites, such as Green Bay Packaging and Lambeau Field.
At Miron, our internships are far from the run and grab the team coffee kind of internship. Miron interns are fully immersed in their roles and get ample opportunities to gain real-world experience and knowledge from team leaders. From the day they are hired, our interns become key players in our company culture and partake in the activities and trainings offered to our full time employees.
You’ll be busy as a Miron intern, and we want you to be prepared as you begin building your legacy with us. Thomas Mejia, our current masonry Self-Perform intern, provides an overview of all the activities you’ll participate in during your time as a Miron intern. This includes a preview into your first day orientation, Miron Way training, team building day, and end-of-summer presentations.
While she was a student at the Milwaukee School of Engineering, Dakota logged many hours as a project management intern at Miron Construction. In this video, she shares what her internships were like and her journey to get to where she is today: a full-time project manager running her own projects in southeastern Wisconsin.
We’ve learned that it’s not enough to simply construct buildings—we need to do more. We need to truly understand our clients and what they are trying to accomplish. The success of our business relies on all of our passionate employees going above and beyond, each and every day, to give life to our vision statement:
Project management interns are responsible for managing activities for projects to which they are assigned. These activities may include assisting with preliminary estimates, budgets, financial control, scheduling, coordination of construction activities, project closeout, and owner occupancy. These interns also work in conjunction with the project superintendent and other project team members and report directly to a project manager mentor.
Estimating interns are responsible for learning and participating in estimating activities for multiple projects. These activities may include assisting with preliminary estimates, budgets, and financial control. They also work with the project superintendent and other project team members. Estimating interns report directly to the vice president of estimating, who assigns them to an estimator mentor.
Risk management interns help mitigate risk for activities on project sites, which may include conducting safety audits, assisting with safety orientations, developing site-specific safety plans, conducting incident investigations, and many other facets of risk management work. Risk interns also work in conjunction with the project superintendent and other project team members and report directly to a regional risk manager mentor.
Virtual construction interns provide assistance to design-build teams to facilitate 2D and 3D coordination with content modeled by others or modeling content not already provided. Virtual Construction interns perform 4D virtual building analysis on models, working closely with the scheduler, project managers, and superintendents. They perform and document collision detection on virtual building models as well as assisting in conflict resolution. Utilizing leading-edge Building Information Modeling (BIM) technologies, virtual construction interns perform material quantity take-offs of building models for conceptual estimating purposes. Interns help manage model changes through design updates and as-built conditions as well as assist pre-construction personnel with materials for presentations.
Other internship opportunities include information technology, accounting, human resources, and marketing.
