ARCO Construction’s recruitment team is hitting the road this fall to attend career fairs and recruitment events on a campus near you! We are set to visit University of Missouri-Columbia, Missouri University of Science & Technology, Arizona State University and many more to engage with students looking for fulfilling and challenging internship and co-op experiences. Check out the line-up to see where we can connect with you:
The ARCO Co-Operative Learning Experience (co-op) includes an internship and a semester of full-time, paid working hours. ARCO’s working relationship with universities ensures you maintain full-time status to keep financial aid and scholarships in good standing throughout your co-op experience.
As an ARCO co-op, you’ll collaborate with a project manager mentor and build relationships within a variety of industries including commercial building, multi-family, senior living, ofﬁce, life science, industrial. You will effectively work as an entry level project engineer on three to five projects during your time with ARCO, gaining valuable experience to prepare you for a career in the construction industry.
Here is what some of our previous interns and co-ops had to say about their ARCO experience:
“I was incredibly grateful to have the opportunity to return to ARCO Construction Company this summer after my initial co-op in 2020. Thankful to the whole team for taking me in one more summer and showing me there’s still plenty to be learned! My time spent on-site in San Diego was yet another great experience that helped deepen my understanding of building in different communities with different challenges.”
-Alexander Gambill, Project Management Intern, Summer 2023
“This past summer, I have had the privilege to work with ARCO Construction Company as a Project Manager Intern. The experience I have gained over a short few months has been very insightful and a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I would like to express my gratitude to the entire team for their patience, willingness to teach, and encouragement throughout my internship journey.”
-Klara Schildroth, Project Management Intern, Summer 2023
“This summer I worked once again with ARCO Construction Company as a Project Manager Intern and enjoyed the opportunity to be a part of putting together and running these jobs from the other side. It was eye opening to see the work that goes in from the office including the process and mindset project managers bring in each day. These experiences and lessons learned were invaluable and immersing myself in ARCO’s culture was the highlight of my summer!”
-Steven Porowski, Superintendent Co-Op, Fall 2022 & Project Management Intern, Summer 2023
