Path to Licensure

Barge employees are encouraged to pursue applicable licensure certifications. We cover the cost of study materials, as well as the fees for the exam. Unlicensed staff can also work directly with licensed staff to accrue applicable experience.


We host a diverse group of interns each summer at multiple locations across our footprint to work on current projects with the guidance of experienced professionals. Interns also participate in professional development activities, including interacting with our executive and leadership teams. Many interns become full-time hires — in fact, our CEO started as an intern. Applications for internships are accepted from January to March each year.
