Jacobs Engineering recently won the distinction of ‘Best Internship Company of the Year 2015’ in the Netherlands on behalf of the Dutch organization Studentenbureau.
The company was nominated by an intern, Fabian Raaphorst, who worked for Jacobs in 2014. His nomination was inspired by interesting and challenging assignments, good guidance and coaching. The jury chose Jacobs based on criteria such as the role of interns in our organization, development opportunities, guidance and coaching, working conditions and end results.
Fabian currently works at Jacobs on a mechanical engineering team and is writing a manual for fire heated equipment. “I understand why Jacobs was nominated,” Fabian said. “I have a challenging task, but my supervisors and colleagues help me out when necessary. The guidance I get at Jacobs is much better than in any of my previous internships.”
Studentenbureau encounters many situations in which working conditions for interns can be improved. Trainees indicate that they are getting no or little guidance and that they are not being treated seriously. By organizing this award, the company aims to create awareness within businesses, government and education to structurally improve the conditions for interns.
