We value a culture where integrity, teamwork, passion, service, leadership and accountability are at the heart of every decision we make and every action we take. We’re proud of our more than 80-year commitment to protecting the livelihoods and futures of our client/members and creating an atmosphere where our employees thrive.

What You’ll Do: Our Real Estate internship is a great way for you to get your foot in the door and gain entry level finance/real estate experience. In this internship, you will evaluate annual operating statements, rent rolls, financial statements, property inspections and third-party reports for the commercial mortgage loan portfolio. You will also complete some property analysis for potential investment opportunities, and assist with other projects as needed.

Our internship program holds an 80/10/10 approach, meaning that 80% of your work time will involve performing tasks or working on projects within your hired work area. Another 10% of the time, you will be exposed to learning in other areas within your assigned division to get more corporate experience. Then, the final 10% will be spent in shared experiences across the organization, where you will get to really learn about our culture and work environment.
