“I have always seen myself working for a company that is large enough to make an impact felt internationally. Shaw provides that and more. As a part of the internship program, Shaw provides each intern at my job site with two mentors: One is our discipline lead, and the other is a seasoned veteran with a willingness to teach. This is key to Shaw developing its next generation of leaders.”
