Barton Malow

College Internships

Established in 1984, Barton Malow’s Internship Program requires the best from each of its participants. In return, it provides the best real-life construction experience the industry has to offer.

Leaps Construction Management Internship

Through the Barton Malow internship program, students learn about different building types and delivery methods while gaining on-the-job experience with opportunities across the various markets we work in. Through training, daily job responsibilities, and corporate networking events, our construction management internship program thoroughly prepares students for a career in the industry. Opportunities are also available for internships in core services roles like finance, marketing, human resources, and more that support our project delivery teams.

The Said Differently team sat down with Intern Joe Holland as part of the Beyond the Build podcast series to talk more about his experience as an Intern working on the Football Operations Center project at the University of Virginia – a project, when complete, he’ll get to use as an outside linebacker on UVA’s football team.

What We Look For

Each summer, students participate in our program and deploy to Barton Malow jobsites and offices around the country. We encourage students who are enrolled in construction management, architectural, civil, or another relevant degree program to apply. We want students who are serious about their education and look for a GPA of 3.0 or higher, as well as involvement in student organizations and demonstrated leadership among peers. Finally, we’re looking for flexibility and students willing to go where the opportunities are.

Ultimately, converting students into full-time team members is the goal. Many students intern with Barton Malow for one, two, or three rotations prior to accepting a full-time position.

How to Apply

Applications for the summer internship program open in the fall for the following summer. If you meet the program requirements, a member of the Barton Malow Human Resources team will reach out to discuss your experience, interests, flexibility and interest to travel, and what you’re looking to get out of a summer internship. Our team will extend offers before the end of the calendar year in which you apply.

If you receive an offer, you will receive a pre-arrival survey in preparation for the start of your internship. Interns will be notified of their job placement a month prior to the beginning of the program. The summer internship program begins in May and is a 12-week commitment.
