Sterling, VA (August 19, 2021) – Rosendin, the electrical contracting industry’s largest employee-owned firm, welcomed Pennsylvania State University student Chase Walter 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.
Walter is a junior studying Architectural Engineering in Penn State’s College of Engineering. He is a Project Manager Intern at Rosendin’s Sterling, VA office, where he is developing new skills and assisting with communications between the main office and jobsites.
“The best part of my internship so far is working with a great team, everyone is encouraging,” said Chase Walter, Rosendin Intern. “I’m interested in a career in construction management, and I quickly realized Rosendin was the perfect fit. This internship has taught me that project managers are the connectors between the office and the jobsite. Communication and coordination between all aspects of the project are key, making the job of a project manager crucial to a project’s success.”
Walter’s internship will last 12 weeks at Rosendin’s Sterling office, one of 17 regional offices nationwide. He will explore his career path, gain valuable job experience, fulfill university fieldwork requirements, and grow his professional network. Walter will work alongside a designated Rosendin mentor to solve real-world construction industry challenges in project management.
