Objective

To obtain a challenging entry level management position that will allow me to develop a better understanding of the construction business while utilizing the knowledge I’ve gained through school and past work experience.

Summary

About Me:

I am a graduating senior from Purdue University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Building Construction Management. During my time at Purdue, I have had the privilege to obtain three summer internships through the Construction Management Career Fair. With experience working for both a subcontractor and a general contractor, I possess the knowledge from both sides of the table. I also have extensive experience assisting project engineers, project managers, and project executives in tasks involving budgeting, estimating, scheduling, expediting, and other miscellaneous assignments related to project management. I believe networking is one of the most important tools to use as a young project engineer or project manager. For this reason, I have been involved with many Purdue clubs and associations such as: American Society of Healthcare Engineers, College Mentors for Kids, Sigma Lambda Chi Honor Society, and Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity. I would consider myself to be a well balanced individual who is ambitious and eager to learn.
