National Diversity Scholarship
National Diversity Scholarship

Building a diverse and inclusive workforce means more than simply recruiting top talent -- it means mentoring a new generation of builders while fostering a culture of innovation and creative thinking. We believe in growing as a team and providing opportunities to set the foundation for a career in construction. Geared toward construction and engineering students, JE Dunn’s new National Diversity Scholarship supports our 3-pillar strategy for diversity and inclusion: workforce, workplace, and marketplace.

What You'll Do
From on-the-job training to essential experiences and a final project, one of the most important takeaways of an internship at JE Dunn is the opportunity to gain a real-world experience and chance to put your education into practice. From day one, you’ll be paired with a mentor, work directly on a team, and build buildings and relationships that will positively impact your career. Not only will you learn on the field, but you’ll gain insight to multiple areas of our business that will, in turn, help you gain a better understanding of the construction industry as a whole.
What You’ll Learn
At JE Dunn, we are higher performers and proven builders. This is demonstrated by our commitment to development and growing the skills of our future leaders – and that means our interns, too. More than 50% of our new graduate hires are former interns. As an intern, you’ll learn industry and professional skills, personal development and strengths, the chance to be part of a high impact team, and more.
What You’ll Takeaway
As the saying goes at JE Dunn, the only thing we build better than buildings is relationships. Whether you’re on or off the field, you’ll take away an invaluable work experience, long standing friendships and an unforgettable work culture. From serving others in our communities to producing high-quality work each day, we take pride providing a fun and safe work environment for our people.

What does the onboarding & training experience look like for entry level employees?
  • JE Dunn is committed to supporting new employees in their successful transition to our workplace. Successful transitioning requires an onboarding plan that engages each new employee from their offer acceptance through their first 90 days of employment.
  • Because many of our early career professionals are accepting their offers weeks (and more often months) before their start, we make it a priority to stay in touch via newsletter and regular calls.
  • Once onboard, our “Dunn from Day 1” onboarding program provides the​ structure, support and resources needed to accelerate employee productivity, increase engagement,  and ensure all of our new hires feel like valued members of the team. 
  • After 90 days, our new employees can take part in a variety of in-person and online learning programs designed to develop our people both professionally and personally.   JE Dunn’s in-house learning programs equip employees with the skills they need to become proficient in their current roles while also preparing them for their future career aspirations.  Some of the offerings our early career professionals can anticipate include: National Orientation, Dunn 101, Supervision 100, and much more!
