Tell us a little bit about your upcoming internship role at Vanguard.

This summer, I will be at Vanguard in the Global Workforce Experience division as a Real Estate Intern (PMO Operations Support). My role will involve supporting various aspects of project management, such as project planning, monitoring project progress, and collaborating with project managers to obtain necessary project closeout documentation. I am excited and grateful to have the opportunity to work closely with experienced professionals in the industry and gain valuable insight into corporate real estate.

How did you get involved with CoreNet?

I got involved with CoreNet through Temple’s Real Estate Organization. In my freshman year of college, Diane Botson and Kieara Hill came in to speak about CoreNet and its student membership. Right away, I jumped at the opportunity to become a member as I felt that CoreNet would be a great way to network with other industry professionals.

What do you like about CoreNet? 

What I love about CoreNet is the valuable resources it offers, such as networking events and educational programs. I think CoreNet is an excellent platform for both real estate professionals and real estate students to connect, collaborate, and learn. I truly admire CoreNet’s commitment to supporting people in the real estate industry. As a student, I enjoy attending the networking nights to see new and familiar faces. I have made many valuable connections thanks to CoreNet, and it has helped me solidify my desire to be in this industry.

What advice would you give to other student members looking for a job in the industry?

The piece of advice I could give to other student members looking for an internship in this industry is to be nice and network actively. Real estate is such a relationship-based industry, so no matter what, be nice to people. At the end of the day, your goal is to be memorable in a good way. Put in the effort to attend industry events, join professional organizations like CoreNet, and connect with professionals and your fellow peers. Opportunities are there if you put in the work to find them.
