You can do more than getting coffee and running errands. Stretch your potential with a program built around a hands-on experience and real-life projects.

The Basics

You are discovering what you want to do; we want to help.

Life at JEO

There is no better scenario to learn something new and valuable than real-life circumstances! The Intern Project at JEO has given me precisely that: The opportunity to experience tangible project challenges and the responsibility to think of alternative solutions.

As a planning student, this interdisciplinary intern project helped me better understand traffic projects and the real-world problems that need to be solved when creating solutions that benefit whole communities."

Karl Dietrich

If I had to say something about my experience at JEO, I would say that JEO has offered me an amazing chance to learn skills and experience work that just cannot be found in a classroom.  I have also made important connections with my coworkers that valuable for years to come.
