APTIM Set to Welcome STRIVE Summer 2023 Interns

This year, we have 35 interns from many walks of life who will be working all over the country!

What is STRIVE?

STRIVE is APTIM’s 12-week summer internship. Through our program, we provide ambitious students with paid opportunities to contribute their unique ideas and perspectives to real-world assignments that affect our business. Our interns have worked on coastal biological monitoring projects, isometric pipe drawings for construction projects, 3D laser scanning in fuel systems, and graphic design and analytics for sustainability reports.

“APTIM’s STRIVE internship program is a gateway for developing professionals and a key component to establishing future generations of APTIM teammates,” said Vice President of Human Resources & Administration Emily Reed. Our internship process is designed to offer hands-on mentorship and training from industry experts to empower students to explore possibilities for their future careers.
