Internship Program

ORC offers a summer internship program for college Juniors and Seniors annually, from May to July. This program offers a flexible work schedule to accommodate student coursework. Each intern is assigned and works regularly with a mentor to learn about the right-of-way industry. Interns learn industry-related skills and are introduced to a variety of right-of-way disciplines. Toward the end of the internship, interns meet with their mentor and the office Project Manager to deliver a brief presentation of what they learned during their internship. The Internship Program works with colleges to allow the Intern to earn college credit for this work.
