Summer Internship Program

Summer Internship Program

GeoStabilization’s passion is to develop and install innovative solutions that protect people and infrastructure from the dangers of geohazards. An intense and exciting opportunity, we’ve hosted primarily geotechnical and civil engineering college students since 2011 in our summer internship program. This highly selective internship is designed to provide candidates with a hands-on, demanding internship experience that encourages practical application of engineering concepts and construction principles in the geohazard mitigation environment through real world experience.

The Intern Program is highly competitive application process that is quite rigorous. 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 Princeton or Harvard. This career-making opportunity has each participant traveling around the country to different job sites and gleaning an understanding of real-time design-build contracting in the geotechnical, civil engineering field. Our interns are designated a mentor who assigns them technical projects, monitors their progress, and gives them feedback on their efforts. The interns hired for these positions should expect to learn all facets of geohazard mitigation and will leave with invaluable hands-on based skills as well as geotechnical industry knowledge. These are paid internships with all travel expenses covered by GeoStabilization. Best of all, we have hired many of our past participants on a full-time basis after completion of their studies.

This summer program will provide hands-on practical experience working in two general areas (order may vary by individual intern):
