Kiewit’s Mining Group is currently seeking mining/civil engineer Interns for their summer 2020 intern program! An Intern position with Kiewit provides a hands-on learning experience directly related to the skills needed in a full-time construction career. You will have the opportunity to develop, participate and learn key roles and functions within construction management. As a Field/Office Engineer Intern you will be introduced to a variety of office and field activities as well as estimating in order to develop your understanding of construction. You can expect to spend time learning and working on shop drawings, submittals, schedules, take offs, pay requests, contract changes and project documentation. While learning these things you will have the opportunity to travel the country building complex projects that make a profound impact on communities.

Kiewit's Mining Group has locations in Wyoming and Idaho as well as joint venture work in Texas and Arizona. However, one of the many things that makes Kiewit's culture unique is that we go where the work is, which exposes your career to abundant opportunities. We relocate our teams based on the work that is available, combined with the development plans, skill sets and career goals of each team member. This means your Kiewit adventure is custom-designed to meet our shared needs. Job assignment location will be determined 30-60 days out from your start date.

This Internship provides a hands-on learning experience directly related to responsibilities that transfer to skills needed in a full-time position. This is an opportunity for you to develop, participate and learn key roles and functions within our mining and/or construction operations. Depending on the project, responsibilities could include:
  • Haul truck operations
