About our Internships

We’re proud to help build your career. If you’re currently enrolled in a college construction industry program, apply for an internship with us. We also offer internships for our support services: accounting, marketing, information technology and more.

To apply for a summer internship, please submit your resume to car[email protected] between August 1, 2020 and October 1, 2020. If we’re coming to your school, you can apply in person at the career fair or scheduled company presentation. We look forward to meeting you!

Our interns work side-by-side with our team on job sites, in our offices and across the region learning the ins and outs of their chosen profession along with valuable skills they can take back to the classroom and into the working world. Contact your college program department head or our human resources department if you’re ready to try your career on for size.

We’d love for you to stop by, say hi and give us your resume when we visit your school. We believe the best interview can be the first time we meet at a career fair or at one of our presentations.

We’ll post our list of schools we’re visiting and when, by August 1st.

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."

2018 Summer Intern | Hired Full-Time in 2019

During my summer at McCownGordon I learned from the best of the best. My superintendent gave me responsibility, respect, and taught me a ton about construction. I loved how all the employees of the company were engaged with the interns. My summer at McCownGordon put me light years ahead in the classroom. A few of my favorite parts were spending time with other interns, company socials and events, and all that Kansas City had to offer."
