As part of our career development program, we focus our efforts on hiring emerging professionals—those technical staff early or just beginning their careers. We offer emerging professionals the opportunity to meet and work with leading experts to accelerate their introduction to our industry.
CHA has an extensive and competitive Summer Internship Program. Each summer, CHA employs over 40 interns throughout our offices in the United States and Canada. Over the 8 to 12 week program, our interns participate in authentic learning experiences that help them improve and develop skills. These opportunities include:
- Hands-on experience on projects; performance of entry level responsibilities
- Teamwork among fellow interns and technical team members
- Technical presentations
- Project site visits
- Research projects and presentations
- Social outings and community outreach opportunities
- Field work
Our internship program aims to prepare students for the entry-level working environment. We start recruiting and speaking with students as early as September for consideration in the following year's program. Ideally, we seek students who are entering their junior or senior year of college with the goal of potentially making a job offer to top performing graduates.
CHA attends career fairs in the fall and spring at top engineering and science schools across the U.S. At these events, our talent acquisition team is seeking top talent and recruiting candidates for entry-level technical positions. Our career fair calendar can be found on our social media channels.
