PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

GORDON University (“Gordon U”) was developed in 2012 with the purpose of engaging designers in a casual, interactive professional development program. Gordon U is held once a week and is open to all entry and mid-level employees who are looking to share their knowledge and gain input from other designers and professionals within the company. In addition to enhancing technical skillsets, Gordon U enables participants to strengthen their confidence in interpersonal communication and client presentations, which have become increasingly valuable in career advancement.

 

INTERNSHIP PROGRAM

GORDON’s Summer Internship Program is a comprehensive opportunity for college students and young professionals to experience the broad spectrum of civil engineering and land development consulting services across a wide range of exciting project types and sizes.

Interns are typically integrated with GORDON project teams in pairs and mentored by two project-level engineers. Interns rotate through teams of land planners, water resources engineers, landscape architects, as well as field survey and survey computing professionals. Interns can look forward to site visits in Virginia, Washington DC, Maryland, and West Virginia – or remotely supporting federal programs across the country.

GORDON interns are assigned a multitude of tasks ranging from plan markups to creating plan sheets to mobilizing on-site visits with project team members. Interns will gain valuable experience with a wide range of industry software and computational methods – most prominently AutoCAD Civil3D – providing a ‘real-world’ context for their academic course work. Individual tasks and workloads are tailored to each intern’s AutoCAD experience and abilities to support that individual’s growth and skill advancement throughout the summer.

Fun Fact 
During the pandemic I’ve picked up some odd hobbies, woodworking being one in particular. I don’t have a dedicated workshop at home but that hasn’t stopped me from making furniture with only hand tools in my spare time.
