This is NOT your typical, coffee-fetching summer internship. At BHC we treat (and pay) our interns like real employees because they're doing real work. As a part of our team, you will work hands-on, alongside our Construction Inspection team.

This internship will involve participating in the day-to-day operations related to construction management and construction inspection within our Public Works segment.

Over the course of this 10-week internship, you will have the opportunity to learn about the construction through a unique perspective. In addition, you will be assigned a special project where you will conduct applicable research on an industry-relevant topic and present your findings to our leadership team. Our intern will also have access to networking events with other young professionals in the KC metro, fun team-building events, fundraising opportunities, and all company events.

This internship will take place from May 28th through August 2, 2024, and will be 40 hours per week.
