The end of my time at New England Construction is here and it has been quite the ride. Today marks the last day of my internship here and the last week of my summer. On one hand I’m looking forward to going back to school. On the other hand it’s been a positive experience that eventually had to end.

It’s finally the end of the road, senior year. After all my time here I sit back and reflect on all the things I did this summer and try to collect all my thoughts as I go back to school.

With an increasingly competitive job market students are looking for ways to get a leg up on the competition. Internships are a great way to get relevant job experience related to your field of study while looking good on a resume. In my experience the right opportunity can be tough to find if you are not properly prepared. It is time consuming to find the exact requirements you are looking for so it is smart to look early. Internships also offer networking opportunities that can be useful after graduation. Although they are most popular during the summer, often these positions are available year round. With that being said here are 5 tips to consider when searching for an internship.

Well, it’s finally junior year and we are approaching the finish line of the summer. Only a couple more weeks left to learn all I can and help as much as I can. My constantly changing duties at New England Construction continue to be my summer theme.

July has come and gone and August is here. The bulk of the summer has passed and as time is winding down you start planning and thinking about what is the next step in your future. Most people going into junior year shift their focus more on life after school. Thoughts of jobs location and what the plan is after college becomes increasingly commonplace as the year winds on. Here at New England Construction I can see the finish line. With a little more than a month till classes resume, the last quarter is here.

When sophomore year starts the training wheels come off. Expectations and responsibilities are high and the pressure is on. Sophomore year classes no longer give you the benefit of the doubt, or let you “settle in.” Ability has increased, therefore the responsibilities have increased as well. As a sophomore you hit the ground running and you use the knowledge you gained freshman year and build on it.

You know it has been awhile now since I started working for the summer. We are about halfway through my summer at New England Construction so it’s almost like sophomore year. At this point you’re pretty much caught up on everything going on with jobs that have started that you got throw into. You know all the subs (subcontractors) working by name, and for me personally it does not take a GPS to get around to all these job sites anymore. There was a little shake up with my project assignments too.

Familiarity. I’ve always looked forward to the middle of all processes and sophomore year of college is the definition of middle.The middle is great in my opinion. There are less nerves when compared to freshman year and less uncertainty when related to senior year. It’s the equilibrium where the beginning and end meet.  This is the midpoint for my internship at New England Construction.

Major transitions in life always bring us excitement and anxiousness.The summer after high school graduation I was filled with these two emotions as I awaited my freshman year of college. As a student, I left an environment where I was a big fish in a small pond only to migrate to a much bigger pond where I would be a little fish. The unknown is a scary thought. Will i succeed? Will i fit in? However, the unknown is also exhilarating as you cannot wait to begin the next chapter of your life.  When freshmen year finally begins, the nerves finally go away but the excitement remains.

Starting out at a new job site almost feels like the first day of your freshman year of college again. You don’t really know anyone and you just want to be able to find your role in it all. Now this is my second summer at New England Construction, but changing the job site that you’re working on is a big move for someone.
