Internship Testimonials


“Interning at Neel-Schaffer was honestly the best decision I ever made for my career. The hands-on experience I gained working on diverse civil engineering projects helped me identify my interests and specialization. I appreciated their flexibility and understanding of my student schedule, which allowed me to balance my work and classes. When I graduated, I was thrilled to come on full-time and keep working with the same amazing people on projects I already knew inside and out. I couldn’t have asked for a smoother transition into the working world.”
