TRC is depended upon as a trusted adviser to design and implement solutions to the toughest challenges. We excel in developing creative options and implementing optimal solutions to meet or exceed our client's expectations.

As a first step, nothing prepares you better for a career with TRC than an internship. Our internship program provides hands-on, career-specific experience working full-time. You'll work on real projects that deliver tangible benefits and measurable results. At the same time, you'll have the opportunity to learn about and help to solve some of the most important issues we face. You will experience genuine teamwork, and work alongside highly qualified and experienced colleagues, while you work on live projects and operations, using the latest equipment and technology. Our summer internships last 12 weeks, usually taking place in the summer before your final academic year.

Our Intern Program

At the beginning of your internship, we discuss with you the skills we hope you will develop and encourage you to keep a record of your progress. All interns are supported by a line manager who sets your objectives with you and ensures you have the training and equipment to succeed. A detailed and focused appraisal process is essential to ensure that you get the most from your experience. Your line manager will monitor your progress and discuss it with you throughout the internship, and specifically during a mid-internship appraisal. This helps you to see where you are succeeding and what else is needed before the end of the internship. Additionally, you will also be assigned a buddy who helps to get you acclimated to the team and company culture.
