American Society of Civil Engineers
Government Relations Intern
Department: Government Relations/Infrastructure Initiatives
I mostly worked on state Infrastructure Report Cards, and then the National Report Card. Some lobbying work early on, but not once I was remote.
Would recommend it to people who...
Are interested in infrastructure policy and research, and have strong technical writing skills.
Impact of work
Time spent working
How did working remote affect your experience?
I was less connected to the office while remote. I also was given fewer tasks and had a lot more free time.
How did you find the job / apply?
They generally asked about my past jobs and asked about how well I worked independently. It was a simple interview.
Advice on how to prepare
I wish I had known more about ASCE’s report card work, as it was the most important part of my internship.
