It gives constructive feedback to interns and lays the important groundwork necessary to work in construction.
Having access to many experienced mentors, I was able to see the operations and culture at BELL, which ultimately led to my decision to work here full-time after I completed my degree.
I was given the opportunity to work on many different tasks such as performing quantity take-offs, reviewing and processing submittals, and checking concrete formwork, rebar, and concrete mix designs for footings on a large hotel project.
Being with BELL has prepared me for a career in the construction industry by allowing me to experience firsthand many of the responsibilities that are required of a construction professional on a daily basis.
Through my internship at BELL, I was able to gain experience in many different tasks such as managing construction documents, figuring quantity take-offs, and performing land surveying. I also participated and gained exposure in effective communication and management on a commercial construction project.
As I prepare for a career in the field of construction, my time with BELL has been extremely beneficial in confirming my passion for this industry. The knowledge, hands-on experience, and encouragement from coworkers has been a confidence booster going into the future.
My internship with BELL gave me an opportunity to build my knowledge in every aspect connected to construction. It not only allowed me to learn about the process of construction but showed me how to connect with a team to achieve a common goal. The relationships I made with the team I worked with showed me what a true team is and how it operates.
Throughout my internship, BELL provided me with a chance to see all the aspects that go into building a hotel project like The Tempo by Hilton. I was able to be a part of meetings with owners, architects, and subcontractors to ensure everything was being built correctly and on schedule.
While working for BELL I was able to create relationships with not only the BELL team but every sub on the job site. The team of superintendents and project managers on the job site were extremely patient and understanding if I did not know how to do something and they walked me through the process and helped me expand my knowledge.
Even though it was just for a summer, I feel like I am better equipped to go into the construction world after my graduation.
With this internship I was able to gain an understanding of what everyday life for an employee at BELL is like. This helped greatly with my decision to work at BELL full time after graduating college.
An internship with BELL may seem like a summer job for just for a short time, but the relationships you make with BELL’s employees and the lessons you learn from them will last a lifetime, no matter where you may ultimately end up.
