Position Overview
We know you’re not just looking for an internship. You want an adventure — to do something that makes a real impact on the world around you. By interning at KBS, you will be placed at the heart of our business operations, exposing you to not only the vast services we provide across the organization, but more importantly, exposing you to the leaders and decision makers of our company. Behind each bridge built to connect communities, each river used to generate energy, and each tunnel bored to minimize ground level restrictions, you’ll find a <insert team and what they do>. 

So while you’ll be helping our organization to build awesome things, we’ll be helping you build relationships and business connections that will serve as a foundation for your professional career. Kiewit is only the best, because our people are the best; we only have the best people because of our burning desire to help them grow as individuals and professionals. At Kiewit, you’ll find our leaders are coaches, not managers. You’ll be given the freedom to achieve, and our coaches will assist from the sidelines by removing obstacles. Kiewit interns are not passengers on a path towards excellence; you’re the driver.  

At Kiewit, the scale of our operations is huge. Our construction and engineering projects span across the United States, Canada and Mexico, improving and connecting communities with every initiative.  We depend on our high-performing operations support professionals — they’re the glue that holds multiple areas of the business together and the catalysts that make things happen. We hire only the most driven people and we offer them diverse career opportunities, strong leadership and mentorship, rewarding, collaborative work, and responsibility they won’t find just anywhere. We’re always pushing new limits. You can too.
