Guide To Finding Summer Internship Opportunities

Guide To Finding Summer Internship Opportunities

By Jason Chan, Ph.D. Fellowship and Career Advisor / Assistant Director As we near the end of fall semester and look ahead to 2021, the CCPA staff realize many of you may be thinking about summer internships. With COVID-19 throwing a wrench in many of your plans last summer and the ongoing uncertainty about what the pandemic will look like in the new year, some of you may be feeling concerned or anxious about finding and securing an internship. These feelings are completely understandable and shared by many college students across the country. The pandemic has shaken up the landscape of work and employment this year, and with priorities and resources being shifted around, employers are still figuring out what the future will look like for their organizations.  That said, many employers are continuing to offer summer internships. Some may already be recruiting but many will start recruiting after the new year and well into the spring. If you haven’t come across any opportunities in your field of interest yet, it may be that your industry has a slightly later recruiting timeline. With that in mind, the CCPA has pulled together the following guide for your summer internship search. Bookmark this page and revisit it over winter break or when you’re ready to start your search process! GUIDE TO FINDING SUMMER INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITIES (2021) Reflect on your goals, skills, and experiences: Reflect on and identify your goals for a summer internship. Are there industries, organizations, or positions you’re curious to learn more about? What skills and experiences do you want to gain and why? Use your responses to guide...

CCPA Internship Series: Shift Capital

CCPA Internship Series: Shift Capital

Daniel Paredes ‘22 Funding Source: Whitehead Internship Program “We are real estate developers who do things differently.” Hello! My name is Daniel Paredes ‘22. and this summer, I worked remotely interning with Shift Capital through the Whitehead Internship Program. Shift Capital is a real estate firm in Philadelphia that dedicates themselves to the mission of long-term self-sufficiency, safety, prosperity, and quality of life for underserved residents in the Kensington neighborhood. Shift actively battles against negative effects of gentrification: displacement, unemployment, and inter-generational poverty through thoughtful real estate development and other measurable social and economic impacts. Last year, I worked at my hometown’s park conservancy as a summer intern. Since then, I’ve grown an interest in seeing firsthand how working with community and property can result in economic development and sustainability. This being said, working with Shift Capital this summer sounded like a perfect fit for my next endeavor. I have been working under Bob Kupsch, the director of property management. I had the pleasure of meeting the property management team in person earlier this year after my interview, but in light of the pandemic, my internship had to be conducted online. At the very start of my internship, I was given my own credentials to log into AppFolio, professional property management software, to view and access Shift Capital’s entire real estate portfolio. As someone who has never signed a lease, let alone know what a REIT is, I was excited to familiarize myself with the inner workings of the real estate industry as close to the ground level as one can virtually be. Although my internship is being conducted...
