Internship Programs

In addition to our full and part-time positions, we have a renowned internship program.  Our goal with our internship program is to give students hands on experience in each specialized department.  Interns are paired with experienced Mariani associates/mentors, who guide and educate them throughout the internship process.

Internships are an excellent opportunity to study how Mariani creates and maintains award winning landscape projects.

Mariani’s diverse portfolio of landscape projects from green roofs to significant and historic estates throughout the Chicagoland area allows for many unique opportunities for a motivated individual.  This entire process allows us the opportunity to continue our commitment to the education of college and university students.

Rotating Internship Program

Schedule – The start time each day will vary depending on which department you are reporting to (as early as 6:30am and as late as 8:00am).  Most of our internships begin in the middle of May and continue through the beginning of August, totaling on average a 10 week period.  We offer the following rotating internship programs, which allows exposure to each of the specialized departments shown below:

Compensation – Paid Internship.  Mariani offers a paid internship with the pay rate dependent on experience level.  Mariani also offers additional compensation for any overtime hours that exceed a 40 hour work week.

Housing – Many of the students attending our summer programs are not from the Chicago area and Mariani Landscape makes every attempt to secure and largely pay for local housing for our interns.  We often partner with Lake Forest College in facilitating access to dorm rooms for internship accommodations.
