My time at Metric has offered many opportunities to grow and learn! Metric offers hands-on experience from assessment and remediation to industrial hygiene and stormwater services.

Darin 2019 Environmental Intern

I’ve learned a lot about how to use GPS in the field, how to map wetlands, how to get an understanding of a project site and all the different elements that go into our reports. Arc GIS is a big thing, I learned a lot about map-making that I didn’t know before. I’ve taken 3 classes on GIS but working here has taught me much more.
