Welcome 2024 Interns!

We are excited to officially introduce our 2024 Summer Interns! Citnalta makes it a priority to bring on summer interns who are eager to learn about the construction industry and Citnalta’s diverse role within it. We pair interns with projects that best align with their interests and academic majors. Throughout the summer, we mentor, encourage, and challenge them to develop their skills. At the end of the program, each intern presents a topic related to their assigned project to the Citnalta team.

Citnalta takes pride in the fact that many of our current employees started as interns and have chosen to build their careers with us. Read on to learn more about this year's interns!
