Firm’s National Internship Program Offers Mentorship and Industry Experience
San Diego CA— Cushman & Wakefield San Diego is proud to announce the firm provided eight interns an opportunity to take part in its coveted internship program this past summer. The local effort was part of Cushman & Wakefield’s broader National Internship Program, which offers interns real-world exposure to Cushman & Wakefield and the industry through work projects, mentorship by colleagues, including members of the Cushman & Wakefield Future Leaders (CWFL) Employee Resource Group, and networking events.
Larry Cambra, Cushman & Wakefield’s Market Director of Brokerage for San Diego, said, “Our program provides a unique opportunity for students to work with our talented and elite brokerage team in San Diego. We find it both important and valuable to always be thinking about the next generation and exposing them to our firm, culture and business. Not only can they learn from us, but we can also learn from them, and so we both take away something and grow as a result of these experiences.”
The eight interns represent a variety of well-respected colleges and universities within San Diego and across the Western US, including Colorado State University (CSU), San Diego State University (SDSU), University California Los Angeles (UCLA), University of San Diego (USD), University of Southern California (USC), and University of Texas-at Austin (UT). During their internship with Cushman & Wakefield, the interns worked within several practice groups and disciplines within the firm, including life science, office, industrial, private client, medical, debt, and more.
“I had a great experience with Cushman & Wakefield and really learned a lot and had a chance to meet and interact with many great people who kindly offered their time to mentor us with real life situations along with tasks to better prepare us for a professional career,” said Ben Barone, a student from USC. “I thank the company for giving me the opportunity to take part and would highly recommend anyone wanting to work in commercial real estate.”
Beginning in June 2019 and running through July, Cushman & Wakefield’s National Internship Program supported a total of nearly 270 talented interns this summer who worked in the firm’s U.S. offices, assisting its business across a variety of service lines and functions. In addition to helping these young professionals by providing an environment for hands-on learning and future growth, one of the main goals of Cushman & Wakefield’s National Internship Program is to also generate quality and diverse talent for future entry-level roles with the firm.
Cushman & Wakefield is dedicated to providing opportunities around the world for smart, passionate, and driven talent, including the firm’s National Internship Program.
