We believe the best possible way to prepare for a career in the construction industry is to combine on-the-job training with academics and school work. The goal of our co-op and intern program is to create a learning environment where students gain a fundamental understanding of the construction industry while contributing real work to active projects. Currently, we employ 78 former co-ops/interns, six of whom are now part of executive leadership.
Co-op students are hired to work three semesters, alternating work with school, and spend a semester in each career path – project management, field operations, and preconstruction. Student interns work one semester in one career path, with the opportunity to come back for additional experience. Both co-ops and interns are eligible for company benefits, and at the beginning of each work term, students are matched with an employee mentor to guide them.
A: Depending on our needs, you will most likely have the choice of working in preconstruction, project management, or field operations. Additionally, you may share your preference of which market sector you are interested in working in — retail/mixed-use, healthcare, office/commercial, cultural/entertainment, education, civic/government, residential/hospitality, or industrial/manufacturing.
Q: What is Hoar’s hiring process?
A: The first-round interview, usually a more casual panel interview, is typically during college co-op interview day or the day after the career fair. This is our chance to get to know you and for you to learn about our company, culture, and people. A second interview or set visit may be scheduled after the panel co-op interview or career fair day.
