We are looking for students who are interested in pursuing careers on the corporate side of property
management (not property-level). There are two opportunities given a candidate’s background and
experience. The first is an entry-level role fitting of a recent undergraduate with limited to no work
experience. The second is an elevated associate role for which I do not have a job description at the
moment. The associate position would be more of a new business consulting role with client-facing
responsibilities; MSRE is a plus.

under the guidance of our managing director.
In addition to these opportunities, we are also seeking a corporate intern in Atlanta this summer. Job
