Work With Us People Internship Program Equal Employment Opportunity Statement

 

Roe Corporationí»s Internship Program offers students opportunities to learn in a dynamic and challenging environment. The Program allows students to apply the fundamentals and theory they have acquired in the classroom. While actively participating in our multi-faceted firm, students gain valuable knowledge of practical fields within real estate.

Our Summer Internship Program centers on information and learning as opposed to an apprentice-type training program. We give students an opportunity to become acquainted with the various phases of the real estate business. An intern is assigned to a specific staff member to whom the intern is directly responsible. This relationship remains flexible so that the student will have the opportunity to get to know and work with other staff members

While there may be some exceptions to the general rule, the Program is available to college and university students who have successfully completed their second year with a preferred minimum GPA of 3.0.

To improve the chances of successful placement, Roe Corporation requires that interested students prepare a resume including their background, interests, and a cover letter describing what they expect from the Program. Our Human Resources department then interviews qualified prospective interns.

All application materials are due no later than May 25 of the year in which a student wishes to participate. The Summer Internship period begins during the last week of June for a minimum period of ten weeks.
