MCGILL ATTENDS COLLEGE CAREER FAIRS
McGill regularly attends career fairs, and we enjoy having conversations with college students about potential internships and full-time job openings. As a firm, we realize the undeniable value that recent graduates bring to the table, whether it is in their ability to contribute novel ideas and fresh perspectives or in their technical knowledge of the most cutting-edge best practices.
In addition to our expertise in the areas of water and wastewater, water resources, solid waste, land planning and recreation, electrical, civil, survey, construction administration, environmental, MEP, and consulting, McGill is well known for the enduring relationships we have with both new and long-standing partners and clients.
Our workplace culture places a strong importance on teamwork, personal development, career progress, and ethics — in addition to offering competitive salary and benefits.
HOW MCGILL IS DIFFERENT FROM OTHER ENGINEERING FIRMS AT CAREER FAIRS
At career fairs, McGill stands out from other engineering firms because we are both a big enough firm to provide a wide range of services and small enough firm to afford our employees opportunities to work on a variety of projects that will expand their skills. This gives new
graduates, who are just beginning their professional careers, the chance to discover their true passions rather than being forced into a specific discipline.
“McGill has a stellar reputation in the Carolina’s, Tennessee and Virginia,” said McGill Talent Acquisition Manager Mary Smith. “Students will have the opportunity to work on a variety of projects and put the theory they have learned in the classroom into practice. We tackle local challenges and students see firsthand the impact they have in the communities where they live and work. We work in teams so they will have access to engineers and design professionals who will mentor them as they take on project assignments that become increasingly more complex over time.”
WHY SHOULD COLLEGE STUDENTS CHOOSE MCGILL?
McGill has abundant opportunities for interns and recent graduates, and we truly care about our employees. We have a terrific company atmosphere, we appreciate a healthy work-life balance, and we encourage professional development and ongoing education for our staff.
Those who are just starting out in their professions, those who want to discover their passion for engineering, and those who are searching for a new role that will challenge them — will all find a welcoming atmosphere at McGill. In the same manner that we foster relationships with clients and shape communities through the delivery of our services, we work hard to cultivate a positive work culture among our staff in each of our seven desirable office locations.
INTERNSHIP AND JOB OPPORTUNITIES AT CAREER FAIRS
At these career fairs, we would love to share with you our paid internship openings for students seeking a degree in civil, environmental, water resources, electrical engineering, and related fields. The goal of an internship is to blend classroom knowledge and theories with practical application and skill development in a professional and supportive environment.
WHAT IS MCGILL LOOKING FOR AT CAREER FAIRS?
McGill is looking for well-rounded students, who are working to develop both their technical and soft skills. We want students who are genuinely interested in the work that we do here to shape communities throughout the southeast. We always advise students at career fairs to be as prepared as possible by dressing professionally, bringing copies of their resumes to hand out, and researching the companies that they have an interest in.
“Career fairs give students a chance to learn about the kinds of jobs that are available in their field and talk with engineers about their projects and the companies they represent,” Mary explained. “Not only are they able to practice professional interactions, but it also gives them the chance to make lasting connections with future employers.”
