My name is Shelby Bishop and I am a junior Construction Engineering Technology at Louisiana Tech University. During the summer of 2017, I interned for a residential and commercial contractor, Rhodes Properties and Development, located in Natchitoches, Louisiana. Coming from a line of civil, mechanical, and electrical engineers, I have always been interested engineering and how individuals use their judgment to develop ways to benefit mankind. The construction industry caught my eye when choosing what career path I wanted to pursue. The construction industry plays a vital role in boosting the economy and construction projects are tied to businesses in a wide range of industries. I chose to do an internship in construction because experience is the best way to get a real sense of the industry. During my internship, I was able to ask a lot of questions and learn the do’s and don’ts of the industry.
