Co-Op / Internship Opportunities

Working with us in this capacity could open opportunities with us for your entire career. Because of our needs at the time and the student’s aptitude for the job—along with leadership skills—many of our co-op students have continued their full-time careers with us. In fact, our current CEO and president is our 2nd consecutive CEO who began his career as a co-op with Shook Construction. Dream big!

internship opportunities

We are looking for students with a passion for learning about the commercial construction industry from the ground up. Each semester, we hire a select group of students for paid co-op positions. We expose our students to real-world situations in both the field and office. Some of the experience you will gain includes processing submittals and take-offs, preparing bid documents and change orders, logging shop drawings and attending jobsite meetings. In addition, we occasionally hire equally passionate students for paid internships in our accounting and marketing departments. Again, we provide real-world experience, which in turn provides an advantage above other candidates when pursuing full-time employment upon graduation.
