2019 Women in Construction: Atiya Rahim, Assistant Project Manager at Erland Construction, Inc.

March 29, 2019 - Spotlights

How many years have you been in your current field? 12 

What was your first job and what did you learn from it? My first job out of Wentworth Institute of Technology was working with a concrete contractor in Staten Island. It was not my ideal career choice, but the market was weak at the time. After working in the trailer for a few months, I was let go and scrambling to find a new job. I never gave up and kept pushing myself. I learned not to be discouraged, to work hard and value the skills I had to offer. It’s something that has stuck with me throughout my career.
