San Francisco, CA (July 19, 2021) – Rosendin, the electrical contracting industry’s largest employee-owned firm, welcomed California State Polytechnic University-Pomona student Celiana Lamas to its 2021 Summer Internship Program. This year’s intern class is comprised of 65 students from 35 colleges and universities from across the country. Rosendin’s internship program gives college students real-world experience in project management, estimating, safety, Building Information Modeling, IT, finance, and marketing while pathing the way for further career development.
Lamas is a junior studying Business Administration with emphases in Management and Human Resources in Cal Poly Ponoma’s College of Business Administration. She is a Project Management Assistant at Rosendin’s San Francisco office, where she is developing new skills and learn what it takes to build a 20-story residential building on the coastline of San Francisco.
“When I was searching for a summer internship, I was particularly drawn to Rosendin’s vision of creating an environment that leads, inspires, and builds,” said Celiana Lamas, Rosendin Intern. “My favorite part of this internship has been meeting new people, learning their careers, and seeing how hard they’ve worked to get where they are. I’ve gained hands-on experience to prepare me for life after college, and I’ve learned that being a project manager is all about inspiring others, seeing another person’s needs, hopes, and fears as valid.”
Lamas’ internship will last 12 weeks at Rosendin’s San Francisco office, one of 17 regional offices nationwide. She will explore her career path, gain valuable job experience, fulfill university fieldwork requirements, and grow her professional network. Lamas will work alongside a designated Rosendin mentor to solve real-world construction industry challenges in project management.
