EDGE Program

At BV, we believe you do best when you're doing what you're best at. The EDGE program is specifically designed to help you discover just what that is. 

If only establishing a direction for your career were as easy as... or stopped with... declaring a major. But a degree is only a step. To help you take the next step, we've designed EDGE... an early-career rotation program that allows you to choose different functional areas and business units, providing exposure to an office environment as well as field or client-facing work. 

You'll build your technical and strategic skills, sharpen your business and communications chops... all while working within a structured training curriculum and receiving ongoing feedback from your mentor, senior leadership, and other seasoned pros. 

Membership is selective, a strong commitment and a high degree of flexibility will help you get the most from the program. 

Rotation Details

To give you the greatest possible exposure to BV's functional areas and roles, EDGE Program rotations vary in length to fit the need of the project and are typically 12 to 18 months. Rotation paths are available for all major BV businesses, and include:

  • Engineering

In order to give you the most complete experience possible, your rotation will include a minimum of one field and one office role. Participants are typically part of the program for 3-4 years, completing 3-4 rotations during that time.
