We provide an orientation and evaluation process as well as continual check-ins throughout your internship.

We love to say yes wherever possible and we go out of our way to make these requests happen! At the end of the summer, we host a celebration luncheon for our interns as well as provide an opportunity to give a brief presentation to senior leadership about what you worked on during your internship. Sound exciting? Please apply on our website and take advantage of this great opportunity!
My internship at PJ Keating provided me with experience that a classroom setting can’t teach. To step into a company environment is incredibly useful. My work done here has been perfect for my own growth, and my hopes are that the work I provided will benefit PJ Keating as much as it benefitted me. I would highly recommend any student of any major to seek out an internship with PJ Keating, as it is very rewarding in many ways.

My summer as an intern at P.J. Keating was extremely rewarding. I learned a great deal about the aggregate industry, spent time observing paving crews, and got a feel for how a large business is run. The haul truck cycle time project that I worked on was also really valuable, since it allowed my fellow interns and me to have ownership over a project that would be very useful to the company. The lessons this internship has taught me will be beneficial in whatever career I choose.
