LASTRADA Partners Internship Program
Our goal at LASTRADA Partners is to help start the career of local college students in El Dorado Hills and surrounding areas by giving them an opportunity to intern for a professional engineering and software company, regardless of major.
We value interns as an integral part of our team, leveraging their contributions on critical projects that drive LASTRADA Partners forward. Like our employees, our interns are full contributors and often work cross-functionally with our various departments, enabling them to gain valuable hands-on experience while collaborating with the accomplished professionals on our team. LASTRADA Partners internships involve various aspects of on-the-job experience, mentorship, and training tailored to the student’s education and interests.
After I completed my internship, I noticed that other companies would actually take me seriously as an applicant, which I feel is a testament to the skills I learned while interning at LASTRADA Partners.
-- Garrett Munt, Former Intern
Since the launch of our internship program in May of 2017, LASTRADA Partners has hired and successfully trained four local interns who have gone on to pursue degrees in various fields including Civil Engineering, Biology, Mechanical Engineering, and International Business.
