To celebrate 20 years of a robust internship program, TD commemorated this milestone with a special list of interns who were 20 or younger when starting the program. Oluwasubomi Adenuga, Jamarcia Broadway, Kaitlyn Cavallin, Travis Coffman, Juan Contreras, Juan Cruz, Jaclyn Dickerson, Katka Durcanska, Ryan Gehm, Alonso Guevara, Chloe Harms, Kristina Hernandez, Tabansi Howes, Juan Juarez, Zackary Lasher, Kate Lyon, Bradley Miller, Isaiah Moore, Gregorio Narvaez, Miguel Ontiveros, Diego Reyes, Gilberto Rivera, Emily Smith, Wesley Spence, William Stewart, Ryan Tucker, Lamech Valdez, and Thomas Walker made the list.
Additionally, TD hired 60 high school and college summer interns and provided industry experience in a fast-paced construction atmosphere. As part of their internships, the students worked on group research projects to better TD’s business and recruiting processes. The presentations focused on industry and customer analysis, field communication, thoughtful planning, and prefabrication benefits. In their final week, the groups presented their research to company leaders. Their insights and knowledge inspired opportunities for continued company growth and innovation.
"TD's internship program showed me not only the process of completing a construction project but, particularly, how it takes partnership, trust, and communication between everyone involved," said Kate Lyon, an intern at TD. "My favorite part of this experience was that I never felt defined by my title as an intern but was seen by everyone as a partner from day one."
This year’s college interns learned practical skills in project management, construction management, estimating, construction technology, manufacturing, business development, engineering, facilities management, human resources, marketing, and more.
TD also offers an established trades internship program that provides future tradespeople an early hands-on understanding of TD and its culture. Starting with the foundation of work-based learning programs, TD is refining its training to meet today’s labor regulations, safety protocols, and educational requirements with tomorrow’s generational expectations in mind.
"This summer marks our 20th internship program. We brought in a variety of talented and diverse young adults to learn about the construction industry and gain applicable work experience," said TD Chief People Officer Steve Cunningham. "We’re proud of our interns and their accomplishments this year, and we hope to see many of them back after graduation."
