“My experience with APTIM was very much an eye-opening one. The exposure to the industry helped me start to narrow my interests down and figure out what exactly I wanted to get into upon graduating. I am appreciative of the learning experience and most importantly the connections I made during my time at APTIM.”
SUSTAINABILITY INTERN, SUMMER 2021
“I truly enjoyed my summer intern experience here at APTIM. Not only was I able to learn more about the field I am studying, but I felt I was actually included and made an impact in the work I did. I got to meet many APTIM employees across the company to get an idea of all APTIM has to offer and also met six other interns that I enjoyed collaborating with and getting to know in a safe space.”
ENGINEERING INTERN, SUMMER 2021
“Not only was I thrilled to be hired as an intern for APTIM, I was thrilled to work for them throughout the entire duration of the internship. I was brought into the electrical group and was able to make contributions to the projects they were assigned. I learned a lot while being an intern and I am excited to keep learning.”

“This has been an amazing experience so far. It's so interesting to see the flow of the company and how every department works together. The internship has helped me understand more aspects of my chosen field and the impacts it has overall."
IT INTERN, SUMMER 2021
In 2021, APTIM completed its inaugural program for college interns called the STRIVE Intern Program, which ran from May to August. Interns from across the country spent their summer gaining real-world experience through project work, goal setting, evaluations, meetings, and presentations, culminating with a group presentation to APTIM’s executive leadership team. The interns learned about APTIM’s diverse portfolio as they joined a variety of departments, including environmental, electrical, graphic design, information technology, fuels, and energy/resiliency.
Led by Holly Castello as the STRIVE coordinator, each intern also had a supervisor and a mentor to guide them through their projects. The group of interns met virtually each week to discuss their work and learn about the others’ projects and attended biweekly Coffee Talks where an APTIM professional met virtually with the interns to describe their role and perform project deep dives. The STRIVE Summer Internship Program was named with APTIM’s Thrive Mentoring Program in mind, which aims to promote professional and personal development and growth through sustained relationships between mentors and mentees.
“It was really positive; great for both the interns and APTIM,” Castello said of the program. Not only did it give the interns great career experience, but “the interns brought a fresh perspective, so it was very refreshing for APTIM.” You could see this success at the culmination of the program, when the interns presented on their individual experiences, suggestions for the program itself, and pitched a group initiative idea to APTIM leadership that ties into environmental and energy solutions, combining resiliency, sustainability, compliance, and more.
The STRIVE Summer Internship Program also allowed APTIM’s safety culture and collaborative spirit to shine, as our foundation of safety and collaboration were in focus throughout the program. The interns were encouraged to work together in The Collaborative Way by being for each other, speaking straight, showing appreciation, and honoring commitments.
