About STRIVE Summer Internship Program

APTIM’s program for undergraduate and graduate level interns called the STRIVE Intern Program, runs annually from May to August. Interns from across the country spend 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 at one of our office locations. The interns learned about APTIM’s diverse portfolio as they joined a variety of departments, including environmental remediation, sustainability, construction management, engineering services, and energy solutions.

Led by our STRIVE coordinator, each intern also has a supervisor and a mentor to guide them through their projects. The group of interns meet virtually each week to discuss their work, career development, and attend biweekly Coffee Talks where an APTIM professional describes 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.

The STRIVE Summer Internship Program also allows APTIM’s safety culture and collaborative spirit shine, as our foundation of safety and collaboration are in focus throughout the program. The interns are encouraged to work together by being for each other, speaking straight, showing appreciation, and honoring commitments.
