Celebrating DPR’s interns, on and off camera

Who we build is as important as what we build at DPR. Since its very first intern (Mike Humphrey, now a member of DPR’s Management Committee), DPR has attracted and retained a highly motivated workforce by fostering a unique, empowered company culture. All this starts with its interns, the best and brightest construction management, construction engineering, civil engineering, mechanical engineering and electrical engineering students from across the nation.

“College recruiting is instrumental in finding our new talent. It has a tremendous impact on DPR because we are building for the future. We are looking for people who embody our core values and have a genuine passion for construction, even if they don’t have a lot of experience yet,” said Rocky Moss, DPR’s national college recruiting champion.

This year, 85 interns joined DPR on jobsites and offices across the nation. They had the opportunity to step into a DPR’s project engineer’s shoes and truly experience DPR’s culture driven by honesty, feedback, and decision-making power at the front lines, with interns receiving the same experience as engineers.

The pictures shown on this page are the top three winners taken on various jobsites across the nation, as part of DPR’s annual intern photo contest.
