    Are you someone who thrives on managing your school work and solving problems? Are you excited about working for a family company where, when you push yourself, you will be recognized? For Walsh Interns/Co-ops, a good day is getting everything done on their to-do lists or helping to solve a pesky problem. A great day, is when they get to do both.

    Walsh Interns/Co-ops are easy to follow because they speak with precision, order and efficiency. They get things done because they plan their work and then work their plan.
