Intern Spotlight: Tyler Martin

July 6, 2017



Name: Tyler Martin

School: Virginia Tech

Assignment: Springhill Suites Gainesville

Intern Year: First Year

Describe your duties: Each day is a little bit different. Most days the first thing I do is walk the building and see what needs to be done and what should be happening. Then I try to pick a few things out that are happening and learn a little bit more about them as they are completed. I am also becoming knowledgeable about what needs to happen each day so when people ask me questions, if I can’t answer it, I find someone that can. I also assist anyone that needs help wherever I can.

How does your internship fit into your long-term career goals: I would like to become a project manager and I am currently learning what it takes in the field to make a successful project happen. I think that to work in the office as a project manager, you need to have that critical field experience, and interning with W.M. Jordan is allowing me to gain that knowledge.
