For the past several years, GeoStabilization has hosted summer interns in our highly competitive program. With a rigorous application process, our historical 5% acceptance rate means that getting into GeoStabilization International’s internship program is more competitive than being admitted to the freshman class at Harvard University. All internship positions are paid assignments that allow interns to travel to job sites across the continent to get a first-hand understanding of design-build geotechnical contracting. Each intern is designated a mentor who assigns them technical projects, monitors their progress, and gives them feedback on their efforts.
