Where did you intern:
KeyBank Real Estate Capital Group
What did your internship include?
My internship involved assisting in the underwriting of commercial mortgages around the country. I helped analyze operating statements, appraisals, engineering reports, and property specifics such as local household income and demographics in order to determine the risk involved with each transaction. Eventually I was given an opportunity to underwrite my own deal including conducting the site inspection with the help of a coworker.
What did you like most about working at your company?
KeyBank has an amazing company culture and I’ve made a lot of great connections working here. It’s been a lot of fun and I’ve gained a huge amount of knowledge during the year I’ve been here.
How did your Bloch education prepare you for this experience?
Coming into the internship with some of the relevant information was a huge help to me. It also made my experience more engaging, as I had to take what I learned in class and apply it to my job day in and day out.
