Whether doing design work, communicating with clients, representing the team at meetings, or going to city council, Tyler appreciates the opportunities he is given to represent Westwood as a graduate engineer. It’s a responsibility he doesn’t feel many other firms offer staff with his level of experience. As a young professional, he feels trusted by his team, who recognize that the knowledge Tyler quickly gains is a huge benefit to both Westwood and its clients.
Opportunities for young professionals exist outside the office, too. "Westwood's happy hour is a great time for co-workers to get to know each other in a non-professional context. There's always a great turnout." He says, "It makes Westwood feel like more of a community."
I’m given the opportunity to represent Westwood on a daily basis, which feels like a rare opportunity for people my age in this industry.
We believe that a flexible, balanced lifestyle is positive for you and Westwood, so we do our best to make every situation work. Employees typically work 40-45 hours a week.
We will teach you about Westwood, the industry, and the job through training and mentoring. All you need to bring is the motivation to learn and apply your skills.
It’s not expected, but if you’re interested, it’s a possibility. Your project manager may invite you in on a few calls so you can see how it goes.
The application process varies. Creating a profile and job agent helps us easily access your resume and keep you informed on job postings. The interview process helps to ensure a mutually beneficial fit.
It’s a good balance, averaging 50/50. Westwood projects are team-oriented. You will have guidance on individual tasks and work with a team to solve problems as they arise.
We consider our intern program to be a recruiting opportunity. Ideally, interns become full-time employees after graduation. For those motivated and driven to advance, there’s nothing stopping them. Many of our leaders rose to their rank at Westwood.
