We are always seeking students who excel and desire responsibility.

Each year, more than 100 students participate in our co-op program across all of our regions and this number continues to grow. Many of our leaders - including our CEO - began as co-ops and have since become the model for employee growth from within.

The following are our most regularly offered co-op positions:

  • Project Engineer
  • Estimating Engineer
  • Building Systems Engineer
  • Accounting
  • Information Technology
  • Safety
  • Building Information Modeling

Email your cover letter and resume to our recruiting team. Please be sure to indicate in which of our regions you are interested.

Messer recruits talented, intelligent, conscientious men and women from major colleges and universities located in the regions where we live and work.


Abby Crews, Estimating Project Engineer
Every co-op term was different. I learned how to put together a bid, communicate with subcontractors, read plans, create schedules, track progress, and track quality. The most important lessons I learned dealt with communication. Messer allowed me to get out there and really improve my communication skills.Abby C., Estimating Manager
