After securing a position as a summer student for Burnside, I was exposed to the amazing culture and family atmosphere, both in professional and extra-curricular environments. I always felt like I had a colleague to reach out to that could support me as I was learning about the industry. In my short time at Burnside that summer, I knew that it would be a good fit for me long term. Due to work shortages in 2020, I had to delay my goal to come back to Burnside as a new graduate until 2022 where I was welcomed back with open arms. Coming back to Burnside was an easy adjustment because I had previously planted my roots there as a student.

As a new graduate, everyone at Burnside has been approachable, supportive, and fun to work with. The family environment is apparent amongst departments and office locations. Burnside has a well-structured onboarding process and offers a wide range of opportunities within the company to find the best career fit for you!

After starting with Burnside in 2009 and spending most of my career working on Transit Group projects, another opportunity in the civil engineering field arose with Burnside’s Onsite Wastewater Group in early 2020. The work on transit projects was very interesting and I enjoyed it; however, the design of onsite sewage systems had been an interest of mine for some time. Burnside allowed me to make the transition and has supported me through the process with training and development. I have much appreciated Burnside’s willingness and support to allow me to pursue career opportunities within the company that align my interests with my career goals.
