As summer comes to an end and university students start another year of school, many are seeking internships, and LID Landscapes (LID) offers a robust program for those interested in enriching lives through beautiful landscapes.
LID has provided landscape opportunities for students of horticulture, landscape architecture, forestry, agricultural management, landscape management, environmental design, and construction management.
These opportunities include hands-on work as rotating crew members in the residential maintenance, commercial maintenance, construction, and irrigation departments. Some interns also work directly with the landscape design team. Many enjoy the chance to work outdoors and to create a unique environment for each client’s property.
LID also offers office internships in marketing, HR, and finance, demonstrating the fact that the landscape industry offers a variety of positions for candidates in different fields.
At the end of their internship, exceptional students are offered scholarships or even a position as an Operations Associate at LID upon their graduation.
Many former interns have become senior-level Associates, such as Scott Natter, who started as an intern in 2007 at parent company James Martin Associates (JMA) and is now the General Manager at LID Landscapes, acquired by JMA in 2013.
“James Martin Associates gave me all the tools I needed to succeed and grow in my career and to become an integral part of the company,” Natter said.
