Are you a smart, motivated undergraduate student in engineering, construction management, sales/marketing, information technology or human resources?  We annually employ between 25 and 30 new and returning students.  Consider applying for a co-op position to spend time working side-by-side with RLG professionals in your chosen field.

We employ co-ops at our Walbridge and northeast Ohio locations.

  • This is the second co-op I’ve completed with GEM. I’ve always had a lot of interest in the construction industry, and this experience has opened the doors to tons of hands-on learning opportunities in the office and out in the field. One of the most valuable takeaways has been learning how to effectively communicate with my team and managers to get things done the right way.

  • The most memorable part of my co-op experience was the hands-on learning experience I gained and the opportunity I had to learn from my coworkers in the field and in the office. As a co-op at Rudolph Libbe, I was exposed to a lot of scenarios and experiences that I am now able to pull from and apply to projects that I work on every day as a full-time project engineer.

  • I co-oped with Ruldoph Libbe Group’s Cleveland office for four years. During this time I created work authorizations and worked face-to-face with customers to discuss phases of the project we were working on. I was given the responsitibilty of scheduling field work, ordering material and tracking project progress. Now as a full-time associate, I can’t imagine working anywhere else. The growth of the company over the past few years is what makes me most proud to work here. You can tell RLG associates feel passion for the work we complete every day.
