This year marks the 40th anniversary of the National Collegiate Landscape Competition, an event that brings together landscape industry leaders, students, professors, and potential employers from all over the country. From March 16-19, representatives from Chapel Valley traveled to Mississippi State University to meet with students who are interested in joining our summer internship program.
At Chapel Valley, we look for candidates who are interested in an internship that highlights all of our departments, including installation, maintenance, water management, estimating, design, sales, and marketing. All play an important role in our company, and it’s fundamental for our interns to know-how.
Chapel Valley’s program is designed for students to have a wealth of hands-on experience that allows them to learn proper techniques in a safety-minded, friendly environment. To ensure that our students receive guidance and support throughout their internship experience, each is assigned a Chapel Valley team member as a mentor. This type of exposure is mutually beneficial, refining students’ skillsets for their future careers, as well as providing Chapel Valley with talented hiring options in the future. Here’s a quote from one of our interns from last summer:
“Interning with Chapel Valley was a fun and rewarding experience. It allowed me to use the skills I learned in the classroom and apply them in the field.”
-Josh, Summer 2015 intern from Virginia Tech
