WK Dickson Internship Program
Our Interns Make a Big Difference
Hello future coworker!
Tell me if you’ve heard this one before: a teenager works their tail off in high school to get into a great college, probably takes on a lot of debt to afford it, and then graduates—all without a clue of what they want to do with their career. One way around this dilemma is to create internship opportunities for students during their academic lives—essentially allowing them to try before they buy.

At WK Dickson, our intern program plays a unique role in helping students learn firsthand what they are interested in. You chose to become an engineer, scientist, or planner for a reason.

"I loved the flexibility given during my internship. I was able to live and work from two different office locations over the course of two summers allowing me to see multiple disciplines and grow connections across the firm. Accepting a full-time position after I graduated was the easiest decision I ever made."
"I felt welcomed from the moment I was offered an internship. The variety of projects I worked on helped me figure out what I wanted to do with my career. I gained considerable technical knowledge in a short period of time and learned about the business of engineering."
"Not only did my internship at WK Dickson validate that I made the right choice in a degree, but their support of my mission trip to Uganda before my first day was so appreciated. Knowing I had a career waiting for me when I returned home was an amazing feeling."
"I was nervous to intern for a highly-respected engineering company, but that quickly evaporated as soon as I walked through the door the first day. My team took me under their wing and it was a smooth transition to being relied on and involved in important projects."
