“I’m Ben, an engineering student doing an Industrial Placement Year with Atkins. Last Christmas I applied for a placement in Transportation, but was unsuccessful in the situational judgement test. This meant I could not continue the process and I hadn’t got the placement.
Jerel Rackley is a Transportation Engineer who, since graduating from Texas A&M University in 2002, has spent his career serving agencies in the design and oversight of roadway projects. He has been at Atkins since August of 2011 and is a recent graduate of the Building People Leaders program. He took some time to share his experiences about the Mentoring Program.
I’m Sam, transport planner at Atkins, a member of the SNC-Lavalin Group, in the UK. I work in Bristol, in a laid-back, young team that enjoys plenty of socials at the pub. My team is made up of a diverse bunch of people. We’re all passionate about what we do, and the end results show it. Our diversity means we bring different ideas and viewpoints to the table and this helps us come up with some amazing solutions.
