When working at VERTEX, we're all in this together. From the moment you start your career with us, you'll work side by side with upper-level management and experienced expert witnesses. Not only will you learn the field of litigation consulting, you'll also join a hard-working and collaborative team focused on developing our professionals for future successes.

Job Description

What you will be doing:

Summer interns perform the same duties as full-time Associates. Engineering interns work within our collaborative teams to analyze complex construction scheduling and project cost issues, often related to disputes including litigation. Associates review, summarize and analyze business and construction records, perform detailed quality control reviews, and effectively communicate their findings to supervisors.

Daily responsibilities include assistance with the preparation and review of damages for legal claims analyses, assistance with the preparation of expert reports, expert testimony and exhibits for trial or settlement negotiations, and providing client support during litigation, arbitration or mediation. Most importantly, candidates will work on maintaining and fostering client relationships through superior client service.

This role will have a start date in the summer of 2024.

Qualifications

Candidates must have or be eligible to complete a bachelors or masters degree in an engineering discipline, preferably in civil engineering or construction management, and have a minimum GPA of 3.2 on a 4.0 scale. Ideal candidates have an analytical mindset with good organizational and problem solving skills, and excellent verbal and written communications skills. They also possess superior Microsoft Excel skills, familiarity with CPM software such as Primavera P6 or Microsoft Project.

Additional Information

We encourage those enthusiastic about our work but who may not meet 100% of the qualifications to still consider submitting an application.

This role will have a start date in the summer of 2024.

All your information will be kept confidential according to EEO guidelines.

VERTEX offers a competitive employee benefits package for temporary employees and interns including worker's compensation insurance and retirement benefits. As an employee of the Company, you are eligible for the retirement (401k) provided to our employees consistent with the terms of the 401k plan. Beginning on your start date, you will be eligible to begin accruing sick time as required by applicable law. The company reserves the right to modify these benefits as it deems necessary.
