Cushman & Wakefield

Summer 2016 Site Review

Position: Research Intern
Student: Economics Junior

The internship that I completed this summer was one that is great for someone who is interested in pursuing a career in commercial real estate in Austin. Specifically, this internship is good for someone who is interested in representing companies that are looking for a place to office in Austin. There are many other different aspects of the real estate industry but this is what is focused on at Cushman & Wakefield. The individuals that you get to interact with in the office are fantastic as well. Everyone is very friendly and looks out for each other. This internship is great because no matter how much you already know you will be able to learn a lot because it is self-paced. This internship also allows you a large amount of room to grow as a professional and is a great place to get your start in the commercial real estate industry in Austin. The site where the internship takes place is one that cannot be beaten. The building is in downtown Austin and looks out on Town Lake, right next to the Austin City Hall. There are identical buildings on either side on city hall and there are rotating food trucks that pull up right in front of the building where you can get lunch. Another thing that is great about this internship is that parking is provided in the office building. I think this is great because parking can be difficult downtown and can also be expensive. Another great thing about the site of the internship is how close, relatively, it is to campus. This makes getting to and from work very convenient and there is not a ton of traffic that you have to deal with.
