2021 Summer Intern | Hired Full- Time in 2022

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."

—Beau Lynch

2019 Summer Intern | Hired Full-Time in 2020

My favorite memory from the summer was the jobsite tours and interaction with so many different people along the way. I learned so many neat things from the various stages of the jobsites we visited. It really allowed me to retain more from my internship, considering it was in-person experiences in lieu of learning it from a classroom setting."

My favorite part of our internship program was the various things that I was allowed to see – not only was I able to see every part of my project but with the project tours and presentations I got to see what my peers were working on and what their lessons learned were. I believe the camaraderie and emphasis on intern success is what makes our program so unique. At the end of the day, I always felt supported, welcomed, and put into a position to learn and grow."

2019, 2020 & 2021 Summer Intern | Hired Full- Time in 2022

Jacob Beck, a McCownGordon Construction associate
My favorite part of the internship program was being surrounded by friendly faces every day. The associates at McCownGordon made me feel welcome and excited to come to work. The internship felt like I was a part of team with a bigger mission than just fixing computers. The reason I was here was because I wanted to improve the lives of our associates. This purpose drove me to push myself to provide the best IT support possible and to soak up knowledge from my coworkers.  By gaining this knowledge and drive, I set myself up for success. This was further assisted by the numerous one-on-one meetings with my supervisor, career conversations, and daily support from my coworkers."

Lauren Koval, a McCownGordon Construction associate
McCownGordon’s internship program was an awesome way to get hands-on experience while learning more about the company and the industry as a whole. My favorite part was forming relationships with the other interns and McCownGordon associates, many of which I am still working with or keep in touch with today! The people at McCownGordon make all the difference, and that’s one of the many things that set us apart. I’ve loved building my career here, and am excited to see what the future holds!"
