Job Description:
The Urban Planning & Landscape Architecture Groups in the Sacramento office
of Wood Rodgers are looking for a Summer Intern for 2018.

This is a unique opportunity to gain an inside view of Wood Rodgers, a
forward-thinking multi-disciplinary consulting firm that values creativity
and prides itself on challenging convention.  Everyone has standards, but we
continuously re-examine old approaches to see if a better result can be
achieved.  As a firm we encourage cross-over and interaction between
disciplines.  We want our staff to develop a broad perspective, and not be
afraid to ask questions of others, and to push the bar a little higher.

Our Urban Planners in Sacramento prepare master plans for new communities,
specific plan documents, conceptual site plans, tentative subdivision maps,
and coordinate with clients and project team members to process land use
entitlements and approvals.  Our Landscape Architecture Group in Sacramento
plays a key role in the conceptual design of projects, master plans,
streetscapes and urban corridor plans, parks and open spaces, and prepares
design guidelines, and ultimately construction drawings.  We envision the
future and then bring that vision to life.  As an intern, you will support
this effort and have the opportunity to learn.

Our preference is toward students that have completed their junior year and
are clearly committed to getting their degree and seeking a career in the
profession.  The best candidates will have strong communication skills:
graphic, written, and verbal.  Some capability with AutoCAD, Illustrator,
Photoshop, Word, Excel, GIS and other applications is a plus.  We also want
our interns to be from the Sacramento or Pleasanton area, or to have family
in the area so that they will have a reasonable and secure living situation.

The Summer Internship is a paid position, between 4 or 5 days a week
depending on workload, lasting from approximately mid-June to early
September.  We are flexible, but timeframe is generally 8:30 am to 5:30 pm.
Because this is a temporary position it will not provide any medical or other
benefits.  Please email a PDF of your one-page resume and a one-page cover
letter to Timothy Denham at tdenham@woodrodgers.com.  You can also provide a
PDF (less than 2 MB) of up to five pages of work examples, or you can provide

communities’ access to parks and gardens, while organizing to change local
policies to develop more equitable park and food systems for generations to

eight in our active development pipeline. We take pride in innovative and
challenging work which makes change a part of our regular work day life. You

a project’s costs, timeline, design, management of consultants and
contractors, compliance with public and private funding programs and
construction oversight. The PM typically works in close coordination with
LANLT team members, including the Community Organizing, Stewardship,
