Job: I wear a lot of different hats at WET to fill whatever role I can. Sometimes I accompany an engineer into the field and help them with well sampling or surveying. Sometimes I build things that need to be built, or fix things that need to be fixed. Sometimes I’m given raw computer data and asked to put it into a more manageable form. Ultimately, everything that I do helps build the experience I’ll need to make the transition to engineer-in-training.
How long have you been in the industry? How long with WET?
This is my third year as an environmental intern, and my second with WET.
What is the most satisfying part of your job?
The dynamism – I never feel bored at work! Very rarely is anything that I do exactly like something I’ve done before. Every day I get to expand my knowledge of, and experience in, the consulting world.
What do you do in your spare time?
Since I’m still a student, spare time is sometimes tough for me to come by! But I usually fill my open days with reading and photography. During the summer, I try to go to as many concerts as I can.
What is an interesting/obscure fact about yourself?
In 8th grade, I taught myself how to write backwards, so the paper could be read normally on the other side when held up to a light. I still do it from time to time.
