Young professionals series: Meet Keith
As Mead & Hunt continues to grow, we’re excited to welcome many up-and-coming professionals to our company. It’s great to couple their enthusiasm and perspective with the experience and skills of our team of veteran Mead & Hunters. Let’s meet a few of them in this series.
Introducing Keith VerKuilen (Aviation group in our Middleton location).
Tell us about your background
I grew up in central Wisconsin calling Green Bay and Waupaca home prior to attending college at the University of Wisconsin–Stevens Point from 2007-2012. My work experience prior to Mead & Hunt includes four (4+) years of civil engineering design for Trempealeau County Land Management Department and Baird & Associates.
What kind of work have you been doing during your first few months at Mead & Hunt?
Since starting in May 2017, I’ve had a variety of responsibilities including project drafting, survey staking, and construction administration. These tasks have allowed me to contribute at all stages of project development and implementation.
What has surprised you about your time here so far?
The willingness of people throughout the company to assist whether it be project-oriented or HR questions. A lot of resources!
Name one thing you learned in your college studies that has been very useful in the workplace?
Team dynamics – learning how to communicate within a group and utilize the strengths of each team member.
What’s one piece of advice you would give a soon-to-be college grad?
Network and job shadow with as many prospective employers as you can.
