My favorite part of the internship was Friday site tours. I interned many places, but never really saw much outside of my tasks until experiencing the McCownGordon Internship Program. By living proximal to other interns, I was prepared to develop and maintain an important part of McCownGordon post-graduation, RELATIONSHIPS.  "

My favorite part of the internship was getting to meet the great people both in this company and in the group of interns. Most of the interns who also work for McCownGordon are now my good friends. Every single time I reached out to an employee of McCownGordon for help I was greeted with enthusiasm and willingness to help."

I chose to come back to McCownGordon because I couldn’t imagine a better place with better people to work with every day. We always have a vast range of exciting projects to work on and I get to learn every day from the best team around. I knew that if I went somewhere else it wouldn’t be able to live up to my experience at McCownGordon and I would regret not coming back full time."

I was drawn to McCownGordon by the core values, unique projects undertaken and the continuous efforts of investing in future leaders. My transition at McCownGordon surprised me as I settled in quickly, mostly because of the amazing culture. Employees lived up to the core values, exhibiting true integrity, relationships and performance in every aspect of what they did. I worked on real projects as an estimating intern and became a valuable team member with lots of responsibilities. I gained experience that will propel me to persevere in my pursuit of excellence in the construction industry. I am very grateful to be given such a once in a lifetime opportunity."

I loved realizing that I was not just a number to the company – my opinions and thoughts mattered and no matter who I talked to on the executive team or on my project, they provided positive advice and feedback for my future and always had an open door to listen."

My favorite part of the internship was the exposure of jobs we got to tour. While we might all be spread out throughout the week, it really brought the company together in perspective as we toured several jobs across Kansas."
