Purdy-McGuire’s Family of Interns

Purdy-McGuire’s internship program started in 2008 as a part of Kansas State University’s Architectural/Engineering department. We’ve gained many top-notch employees thru the program. Dallas managers travel to Manhattan about every two weeks to work directly with the interns so they can start honing their engineering skill under the tutelage of skilled professionals, and can learn how to work on real world designs. We also have interns working in the Dallas office during most summers, and they are outstanding too.

So here’s to our interns. You’re the best!
