Quotes From Our Interns:

  • “My internship at GID’s Boston office has taught me more than I could have imagined. I felt a sense of relief to be in a workplace where I was genuinely treated well, interested by my co-workers, and motivated by the work.” -Kevin (2019)
  • “The internship was a transformative experience. Over the 10 weeks, I worked on projects as diverse as market research to the threats to the multifamily industry. This program brought me some incredible opportunities such as weekly seminars, property tours, volunteering, one on one coaching, and socials, all while gaining insight into what a career in real estate may look like. I am so lucky to have found so many teachers, role models, and friends this summer.” -Elene (2019) 
  • “By far, the best part of my experience was the relationships that I was able to make during my ten weeks at GID. Everyone I worked with genuinely cared about my work and was invested in helping me learn and improve.” -Rozie (2019) 
  • “From market research projects to settings which mandated hard hats and steel-toed boots, I was given the context to see how all the gears within this massive operation came together so smoothly. The executives were extremely approachable and enjoyed sharing their vast wealth of knowledge whenever prompted with a question about the field, or life in general.” -Thair (2019) 
  • I really enjoyed my time working with the PAM team during the summer internship program. What stood out to me the most was the amount of effort that everyone put in to make the program worthwhile for us even under these circumstances. The educational series were very helpful; it was interesting to learn more about the different areas within the company. I learned so much from the different projects that went along with those presentations. It provided us with a wide range of experience and a great way to learn about the real estate industry as a whole. One of my biggest takeaways from the program was learning how to use Microsoft Power BI. This was a tool that was new to me prior to this internship, and being able to create a property summary dashboard really helped me develop my skills. I am excited to be able to use these Power BI skills going forward. I couldn’t have asked for a better virtual internship experience!” – Kristina (2020)
  • “Interning at GID has imparted me with cross-cultural skills and qualities, providing me with greater knowledge and understanding of real estate industry explicitly relating to acquisition analysis, portfolio management and business intelligence applications. I established newfound confidence in myself and my abilities strengthening my career development. I especially appreciate the well-rounded curriculum built around trainings over video calls, led by GID staff who have thorough experience in the business teaching on key topics in the real estate profession. These trainings exposed me to a breadth of topics —from accounting, marketing, development to portfolio and asset management to deal negotiation—and give me an idea of the types of activities we might do on projects.” – Tammy (2020)
