The Right Way to Start a Career

Rosendin’s summer internship program is true to our mission of Building Quality, Building Value, Building People®. Far from errand runners, our interns are given a high level of responsibility across a wide range of projects. They provide meaningful contributions to their teams while learning from the very best in the industry. Internship focus areas include project management, estimating, safety, BIM, finance, and marketing. Each June, we hold Rosendin Intern Week, where interns can network with one another and train with multiple operational and non-operational departments within the company.

Rosendin Intern Week

Each June, Rosendin invites our interns from across the country to spend a week in San Jose, CA for Intern Week.

Internships at Rosendin

“I was an intern at Rosendin two years ago and my supervisor, Mr. Valine, kept in touch with me and asked me to come back. It was pretty ego inflating to be asked that and it made me rethink my values when choosing a company to work for. I want to go where I would be valued and where I would be given room to grow professionally. The company environment is very welcoming and promotes great work/life balance. The construction industry is not just about numbers and schedules. It’s about connections and relationships. You can’t just be good at managing time and money, you have to have people skills. It’s an overwhelming amount of responsibility but most of the people I’ve met have a healthy work-life balance where they can focus on their families and their own mental health as well.”

“The people that work at Rosendin are some of the most genuine I’ve ever met, which creates a pleasant and very enjoyable work environment. My favorite part about Rosendin is the appreciation they have for all of their employees and the recognition they show for their work, giving meaning to their core value of building people. “

Roberto V., Construction Management

“Rosendin’s internship program has been a great experience. I have learned a lot about project management and the construction industry thanks to the Rosendin employees who were willing to answer my questions and teach me. I hope to return to Rosendin next summer for my second internship.”

“Rosendin’s intern program provides the training and experiences to gain great exposure to the electrical construction industry. It provides the perfect blend of guidance and responsibility, making sure that I can complete meaningful tasks and, as I have gotten more acclimated to the project over the last year, my responsibilities have continued to grow. Even more importantly, the team I’m working with is phenomenal, and my senior project manager and mentor have helped me learn a ton and convinced me to pursue a career within construction management, hopefully with Rosendin.”

Taylor Y., Mechanical Engineering
Penn State University

“Rosendin has provided me with a great internship experience this summer. Working on-site has allowed me to gain valuable knowledge about the construction industry; I was not only exposed to the various departments within Rosendin but also collaborated with other contractors on the job—supplying me with tools necessary for my future as a student and an engineer. Rosendin has a great company culture which has allowed me to learn a plethora of information from my mentors and fellow interns, and I am so grateful for the opportunities that Rosendin has provided me!”

“I went through the Intern Boot Camp at Rosendin’s Headquarters in California in 2015 and there were no more than 15 total interns that attended. At the end of my internship, I went back to school and took a few weeks to think things over, and before the next career fair even started I had already accepted a full-time position with Rosendin as an Assistant Project Manager. As a whole, the company has been awesome so far and I see a lot of things that are headed in the right direction with always looking forward, willingness to change, and at the same time a willingness to change something if there is a better way to do it. Rosendin allows their interns to fit best to the path that they want.

I started at Rosendin during the 2019 Intern Program and was placed in the Estimating department, and later moved on to be a Marketing Intern. Through these internships, I was able to learn about what a fantastic company Rosendin is. I met so many people who are smart, passionate, and patient. Rosendin’s culture, and the people that create it, is what truly pulled me in and made me want to stay with the company past my internship. I am proud to now be apart of Rosendin as a full-time employee and look forward to all I have to learn.

Before I started full-time with Rosendin, I interned for two years. My internship helped me to get hands-on experience with writing RFIs, doing submittals, and reading drawings and documentation that we didn’t necessarily cover in class. I decided to stay with Rosendin because I felt like everyone was really trying to help me do better. I have a mentor, and I have someone that gives me goals and expectations to get to the next step.

The thing I absolutely love about Rosendin is that they care about their people. This was shown to me during my first summer internship and is still very evident as I go through my second-year internship. This experience with Rosendin has been amazing because it immediately immersed me in the electrical construction industry. It has been a pleasure to work alongside the team at Kaiser Permanente in Woodbridge, VA as they have provided me with knowledge that I will carry with me as I progress with this amazing company. I am truly grateful that I could have this experience and I am excited to continue my journey with Rosendin Electric.

I started in construction as a summer help with the Union. They had me moving pipe, inventorying things, all the grunt work that they had out there. The transition from working in the field to an intern in the office was happening while I was in the field. My plan from the beginning was to use that experience and knowledge and take that next step into actually interning and then make it my full-time job. When I knew I wanted to work full-time with Rosendin was a couple of weeks into the internship. I really liked how the company was run and I was getting a lot of guidance from people that I worked with. As an intern, the first task I had was a feeder log. It was pretty intensive and it felt like I was actually contributing to something that they used going forward in the project. The fact that they, while checking me, allowed me to do something important and integral to what we were doing out there sparked my interest.

I had the opportunity to work with several other contractors during my college internships, and I value each one of those experiences. The last internship I did was with Rosendin, and I immediately knew that this was going to be where I was going to spend my career. The way Rosendin conducts business and invests in its employees is what sets us apart from other contractors. There are a certain drive and motivation at Rosendin that can be contagious where people are motivated to succeed and constantly improve. At my age, that is the most important thing to me – being constantly motivated and moving forward.
