Each summer CBRE's Property Accounting group welcomes interns for a 12-week program to immerse students in an accounting role within the commercial real estate industry. Interns are exposed to a wide range of opportunities, including performing full-cycle accounting responsibilities for a commercial property, access to the Senior Leadership Team through the completion of a team project and various social events. By the end of the program, interns will have gained knowledge and experience in commercial real estate accounting and a larger professional network to utilize after graduation. The intent of the intern program is to extend full-time offers to students upon college graduation.
