ON THE JOB
My role is to support the project management team. Our purpose is to coordinate office communications to make sure that our construction team is well-informed so they can do their job. Clear communication and understanding what we need to accomplish on site are the most important aspects of my role. I enjoy that some days I am out on the construction site, and other days I am in the office putting together the paperwork that will keep the project moving.

THE KICKOFF

When I first started my internship program, all the new hires began in a group together to do training and orientation. Then, we moved into different departments to learn specific skills. For continuing professional development, interns meet every week as a group with the HR Department. They have different people come in to talk about resume building, interviewing, and other skills. Consumers Credit Union wants to grow you as a person as much as possible.
