Omaha, NE – Kiewit Corporation has been named to the list of the “Best Places to Work for Recent Grads” by Experience, Inc. The list recognizes 20 top organizations from a wide range of industries across the country for excellence in recruiting, hiring, training and retaining young professionals.
“We are thrilled to be included on the list,” said Kiewit spokesman Kent Grisham. “It’s a terrific recognition of our efforts to create the exact kind of opportunities young professionals seek. At Kiewit – whether the graduate comes with an engineering or construction management major, or something from the business college – we want them to know they’ll have an exciting, challenging, fulfilling and rewarding future.”
