This summer, I was the Supply Chain Management intern for the Pueblo Chemical Agent- Destruction Pilot Plant project (PCAPP) down in Pueblo, Colorado with Bechtel Nuclear, Security and Environmental, the U.S. Department of Defense and PEOACWA – the organization responsible for eliminating the chemical weapons that are stockpiled in Colorado and Kentucky.
It was an awesome summer, filled with adventure and new experiences- I explored a lot of Colorado, California, and Utah with some of the other interns, which helped us create a very lasting bond.
The best part of my experience was to be a part of a project that seeks to make the world a safer place, by destroying chemical weapons in an environmentally sound way.
I was able to participate in a sponsored project my first semester at Bauer with my GENB class and this project was with Bechtel Oil and Gas in Houston. It allowed me to get a sense for the company, and get to know some of the company leaders, recruiters and HR managers.
A year after I applied, I got the internship position for the Nuclear, Security and Environmental business unit and the PCAPP project. Many of the Houston office team members remembered me from the presentation, so it definitely helps to get involved in case competitions and sponsored projects as part of your class curriculum.
Bauer’s training on how to prepare and apply for internships has allowed me to have two internships in different functions of supply chain management before graduation in December. I’ve been able to travel to different states, met many people and different places.
It has been an amazing ride.
