Today is #NationalInternDay, so we would like to introduce you to our four Field Engineer interns!

Brooke is originally from Jackson, MO and is studying Construction Management at Arkansas State University. While at Robinson, Brooke has learned to not be afraid to ask questions. "You will learn and understand so much more by simply asking, whether it be the reasons for the tasks and jobs, why something is the way it is, or why there are certain methods and protocols put into place. The more you ask, the more you will learn."

Micah is from Yukon, OK and is attending Oklahoma State University where he is pursuing a degree in Industrial Engineering and Management. While with Robinson, Micah has learned the importance of people in construction. "The number one way to accomplish our mission is through building relationships and working with the people around us."

Gary is from Sikeston, MO and is pursuing a degree in Engineering Management at Missouri S&T. One that that Gary has learned while at Robinson is that, "a construction site progresses faster and smoother when it is organized".

Zachary is from Mexico, MO and is studying Mechanical Engineering at The University of Missouri. Zachary said, "My favorite thing about working at Robinson is the people. Every Robinson employee that I have worked with is knowledgeable and willing to take time out of their day to help me learn and grow as an engineer".
