4 Forcine Concrete Interns walk away with job offers and a student loan repayment contribution!
August 14, 2019
It is a privilege to share that Forcine Concrete and Construction celebrated this week the completion of our inaugural 10 Week Summer Internship partnership with the Pennsylvania College of Technology Construction and Design Programs. Our 6 interns are current students in the Concrete and Science Technology Program and Construction Management Degree program. On behalf of the Forcine Concrete and Construction Company, we are pleased to announce all 6 students earned a “satisfactory” rating for their Internship and will be awarded credit through their particular career and technology education programs. Interns Adam Korona, Jacob Wallbillich, Scott Martin, and Sean Gallagher completed their summer internship out of our Malvern, PA office. Daniel Koch and James Dailey completed their internship out of our Hanover, PA office. In addition, 4 interns were presented with a conditional job offer proposal for a full-time job with Forcine Concrete upon completion of their degree along with a Student Loan Repayment Program to assist with their student debt. We truly welcome the opportunity to work with these talented young men in just a few months.
The overall goal of the internship with Forcine Concrete and Construction was to provide hands-on training and experiences for our interns while working in the field with our crew members under the direction of a job foreman. The hands-on experience combined with the close interaction of our crews provided our interns with a sense of the work we do and the culture we have at Forcine Concrete and Construction Company.
The internship also provided an opportunity to understand the subclassifications of Foundation and Flatwork in the concrete business. Our interns gained an in-depth understanding through hands-on experiences and fieldwork in foundation work; layouts, footings/foundations, form and pour walls/columns, work with rebar, tilt-up framing, slab prep and forming, setting anchor bolts/embeds, and site concrete forming and prep work.
Additionally, our interns gained an in-depth understanding of the following work through hands-on experiences and fieldwork in flatwork; Slab placement, laser screeding, concrete finishing (machine and broom), saw cutting/tool jointing, curbing, rubbing, and patching.
Congratulations to all of our Interns and on behalf of the Forcine Concrete team, we wish them all the best of luck in their fall semester.
