“Ever since I was young I have been interested in construction. I started to work as a carpenter when I was 14 and then became an assistant architect. When I found this position I knew Icon would the perfect starting point for me to grow within the residential construction industry. During my 3 month internship here I was part of the Business Development and Marketing departments. As an intern and now a Business Development Manager, I have had the opportunity to work on various interesting projects with the fantastic team here. Icon is such a great company and I hope to work with them for a long time.”

“I was really excited when I heard I was chosen for the Business Development Internship position back in May. During my interview I could tell that the environment around the office was going to be perfect for learning and developing new skills. Since it’s such a small group of people you really get to experience so many different aspects of day to day operations that a large company would never be able to offer. In the beginning, I never imagined this internship evolving into a career, but I was offered a position as a Business Development Assistant and couldn’t be happier with my choice to come on full time!”

“After completing my Bachelor’s degree in Digital Studies and Mass Communication from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, I was certain I wanted to enter an industry where I could utilize both of those skills. Icon Building Group has provided me with the opportunity to do just that – from assisting with design and marketing to working with permits and administrative tasks, Icon has allowed me to explore every sector of the company. Because Icon has a smaller group of people, you get to know each employee much more than a large firm would ever permit; it really helps make your job feel like a second home. The construction, remodeling and design worlds are huge passions of mine, so I am certain this company will help me grow and succeed!”

“After earning my Bachelor’s degree in Interior Design in 2016, I knew I wanted to further my education. I moved to the United States from Brazil in 2018 where I completed an Associate’s degree in General Studies at Western Nebraska Community College in the summer of 2020. I am currently studying Architecture at Judson University in Elgin, Illinois. I love learning and enjoy new experiences and that is why I applied for the intern position with Icon Building Group! Design planning/software is my passion and I think that Icon is the perfect fit for me to grow as a professional.”

“From a young age I was always interested in construction and design aspects especially in residential housing. Now that I am in college I am pursuing a Business Management degree with an emphasis in Project Management. Interning at Icon Building Group as a Project Manager will allow me to get on site in the field instruction. From a young age I imagined myself doing this exact job as a project manager. Now that I have the opportunity to intern a project manager at Icon I am excited for this opportunity and my future endeavors that this will open for me!”

“For the last few years, the construction industry, specifically custom home development, has really intrigued me in pursuing a career within this type of field. I’ve worked as a carpenter’s apprentice during my summers in between school years and this experience really gave me a clear image to what I want to in this industry. ICON is the perfect place for me to continue to build and develop my knowledge in custom home development and I am excited to work with this fantastic team to take on challenges that will help improve each project that is taken on here at ICON.”
