College Relations

We understand today's graduates are engaged, technically adept, have a global perspective, and bring an unprecedented level of energy to the workplace. Each year we visit high-ranking colleges and universities to recruit new team members who have an intellectual curiosity and the passion to make an impact at Dewberry. We're looking for Dewberry's future—our internship and entry-level career programs are integral to our business strategy and critical to our company's growth.

Gaining On-the-Job Experience: Internships

As a Dewberry intern, you are an important asset to our team. You will take on meaningful work assignments working side-by-side with senior leadership. The program also includes opportunities to network with employees and participate in professional development activities.

Many of our interns return for multiple terms, and we frequently convert top-performing interns to full-time employees after graduation.

Starting Your Career: Entry-Level Positions

You did it! You just graduated with a top-notch degree, and now you're ready to put your experience to work. You have the knowledge and skills to make an impact.  

New entry-level hires receive training and mentorship by our senior staff to further enhance their skills. We accomplish this by placing you on challenging and diverse projects, offering formal training programs, and conducting performance evaluations.

We also encourage employees to enhance their careers both inside and outside of the workplace, through advanced degrees, educational seminars, professional societies, and professional licensure. Check out our benefits page for more information. 

We have developed long-term partnerships with several colleges and universities.

What are some of our interns favorite experiences from last year?

Jordan Lewis, Washington University in St. Louis, Transportation, Baltimore, Maryland

My most exciting assignment was using an addition on MicroStation called AutoTURN to simulate moving a freight truck through a tight intersection. It was fun to play with different variables (curve radius, speed, etc.) to find a solution to the problem.

Emma Clement, Carnegie Mellon, Water Resources, Fairfax, Virginia

I found learning to use five new computer programs for stormwater management to be super exciting! I learned how to use the programs Microstation, Pond Pack, StormCAD, Flow Master, and ProjectWise. I used them to design stormwater management projects I worked on this summer. Each project requires a different combination of these software programs for analysis and design.

Jessica DeCelie, Virginia Tech, Water Resources, Bloomfield, New Jersey

I really enjoyed helping getting projects started, like gathering the information and starting permits, because it showed me how the process usually works. I think that is a skill that I would not have learned in school and will be very useful in my future career.
