You won't be running for coffee or making photocopies.
This isn’t your average internship. At Kittelson, you’ll have the same responsibilities as an entry-level employee, and we’ll pair you with a mentor to help you on your journey. Our internship program is designed around collaboration, giving you every opportunity possible to interact with Kittelson staff and get to know your fellow interns, while seeing firsthand what it’s like to work in the transportation profession.
Kittelson’s internship program takes place every summer. This is a paid internship program ($20.00-25.00/hour depending on year in school). We look for graduate and undergraduate students with open minds, a passion to learn about the transportation profession, the ability to think critically and solve complex problems, and a drive to move the industry forward.
I saw that it's really important to be open to learning new skills. For example, I'm a planner, but Kittelson encourages planners to pick up engineering skills too and use those as part of the process.- Margaret Kent, Kittelson Transportation Analyst and Former Boston Intern
While traditionally, we give each intern a custom assignment to one of our 26 offices, we’ve pivoted in 2020 and 2021 to offer our internship program virtually. Read an overview of our 2020 virtual program and what we all learned along the way. Our internship program remains an important part of who we are and every year, we seek to provide a valuable learning experience to students through whatever form the program takes.
Looking back, I can say that the atypical online program I participated in with Kittelson was an excellent learning experience complete with opportunities to collaborate with fellow interns and to ask questions.- Lauren Zuend, 2020 Intern
