Each fall, Barton Malow recruits students from targeted universities and colleges across the country. Our college recruiting program allows us to connect with students on campus through information sessions, student organizations, career fairs and on-campus interviews. The schools we visit are chosen based on our established relationships on campus and the relevancy of the programs to our core business. While it is impossible to attend all campus events, we strive to meet students who are passionate about pursuing a career in the construction industry, with strong academic backgrounds and the potential of becoming future leaders in our company.
Barton Malow Company’s LEAPS (LEArning Practicum for Students) internship program requires the best from each of its participants. In return, the program provides the best real-life construction experience the industry has to offer. Students learn about different building types and delivery methods while gaining on-the-job experience. Through intensive training, daily job functions and corporate networking events, LEArning Practicum for Students participants are thoroughly prepared for entering the construction industry workforce upon completion of the program. Each year, between 40 and 50 students from universities around the country participate in our program.
