    Full-time student and part-time construction inter
    I am a junior civil engineering student interested in working in the construction field. I am on track to graduate in May 2018. During the summer of 2015, I was an intern with the state DOT and got to experience some concrete, asphalt, and dirt work. I learned a lot, but I did not like the work culture. During the summer of 2016, I got a job with a large excavation company. I worked 60 hours a week driving CAT 725/730s, running a roller, and shooting grade with a Trimble GPS rover. I also got to do some routine maintenance greasing equipment, changing oil, and changing filters. After the summer, I started working around 10 hours a week with the same company observing them doing estimating work and trying to pick up whatever I can. After I graduate, I want to get a job as a field engineer/assistant superintendent doing general excavation and highway work. I want to become a project superintendent, then possibly an estimator/project manager. I have thought about starting my own construction company, but that is years away if it even happens.

    I like working hard, hunting, fishing, canoeing, hiking, and basically any other outdoor activity.
