“I’m fortunate enough to get the internship and get my foot in the door and develop an understanding of what my career path is going to be,” he added. “I’ve learned a lot so far in the field, and the team is a good one to work with. They’re always trying to help me learn more and soak in as much as I can.”
McGregor is familiar with Hoyord’s path. McGregor, who grew up in the Redgranite area and went to Berlin High School, graduated from UW-Stout’s construction program in 2009. He had a sophomore internship, also with Hoffman, which has been in business for more than 130 years.
“Hoffman’s relationship with Stout’s internship program has been going on for a very long time,” McGregor said.
In addition to attending Career Conferences at UW-Stout to help recruit for Hoffman, McGregor is serving on the construction program’s advisory committee.
Another alum, Jason Diem from UW-Stout’s master’s program in construction management, also is a senior project manager at Hoffman.
“We strive to work as a unified group,” McGregor said. “Isaiah has fed into that well over the summer in being able to problem-solve and come up with creative solutions to benefit the team and clients as well. He has great potential,” McGregor said.
