Episode 5 of the Summer Intern Vlog is here! I reflect on my internship here at NEC as my final week comes to a close. Come tune in!
Hey everyone! It’s Kelsey again, back with my final blog post of the summer.
I’ve been working here at New England Construction for nearly 12 weeks now, and I really can’t believe it. The summer really seemed to fly by. The NEC team kept me plenty busy each day with work for over a dozen projects. Each day was different and I never truly knew what to expect when I walked into the office each morning. But that’s what made my summer so interesting.
The fast pace and spontaneous office atmosphere created a wonderful learning environment for me. The work I was doing wasn’t always easy, and at times was quite a challenge, but I had a large support system to help me succeed. When it comes down to it, I think all the hard work only led to lots of gained experience.
But the internship here was even more than just something I could put on a resume. I’ve developed more skills than can be written on a piece of paper, like project management, communication, and teamwork. I’ve become more comfortable with working with new people and furthering relationships with coworkers. Stepping into a new office might seem simple, but for some, it can be quite intimidating. The welcoming atmosphere here at NEC made that process easier, and I had a wonderful summer as a result.
Construction is only the tip of the iceberg of what NEC does. At the core, they organize teams to make clients’ dreams come true. While I can’t say that I’m particularly interested in construction, I can say that I’m interested in what NEC does. I was honored to be a part of their family for the summer and I look forward to seeing their projects pop up all around me in my future travels.
My time here at New England Construction is coming to a close and it’s a bittersweet departure. However, while I don’t plan on pursuing a career in the field, NEC has served as a tremendously supportive stepping stone for where I plan to go. To all the future interns, I’m sure it will be the same for you. Just don’t expect it to be an easy summer!
