JLL

Student Intern

June - August 2021 • New York City, NY

What I liked

I really liked being a part of a structured intern program that exposed me to various areas of project and construction management. I really enjoyed going to site visits each week and got to see so much of NYC. It was also great to consistently be working on two projects throughout the summer to see the progression and how meetings took place. My supervisors were really supportive and answered all my questions about the field.

What I wish was different

I wish there were more networking events between the interns of the other department. It would have been great to get to know some of the interns in the other areas and also learn about what kind of work they were doing.

Advice

I would encourage other interns to keep an open mind and if you have a question, just ask! My supervisors were super helpful at explains things I did not understand and if I wanted more exposure in other areas of project management, all I had to do was ask!

Change Management Intern

June - August 2021 • Minneapolis, MN

What I liked

The structure of the internship allowed me to learn the systems and processes necessary for success. I connected with over 30 people at JLL, building my professional network while simultaneously learning about the field of Change Management.

What I wish was different

I wish I could have stayed with them longer. Because JLL is a large company, their structured 10-week internship program didn't allow me to do extra work after the internship wrapped up.

Advice

Ask questions, connect with as many people as possible, and take notes!! You'd be surprised how many people want to help you and how much they appreciate your perspective.

Project Management Intern

June - August 2019 • Chicago, IL

What I liked

The people were awesome! Everyone was super helpful and always willing to answer questions or network. I appreciated receiving advice for my future and how to reach my career goals. JLL has a wide, global reach so the projects are impactful and relevant.

What I wish was different

I wish I sometimes had more work during the day. I thought of other ideas to be helpful later in my internship, but ran out of time to complete some projects. Due to the nature of the work and confidentiality, it sometimes took a long time to receive clearance or access to sites and resources.

Advice

Start early and continue learning about the company. This allows you to field questions as well as people you look up to. Networking provides helpful advice for meeting people and creating new goals.

Real Estate Brokerage Intern

June 2019 • Miami, FL

What I liked

JLL is the leading commercial real estate company in South Florida. I like that I was able to learn about all business lines in the rotational program. All the brokers went the extra mile to make sure I was getting the proper exposure that I needed to succeed in the industry and get a return offer.

What I wish was different

I wish there would have been a week one crash course on how brokers work and the entire timeline of the deal process.

Advice

I would encourage anyone to always be proactive in your internships. Show the full time employees your awareness of the work that is done at the company and do things without having to be asked.

What I liked

It was extremely nice to have the opportunity to work with people with different professions. It created a huge increase on mostly my experience but also in my personal network.

What I wish was different

Advice

Real life experience is something that should be mandatory to everyone before going to work after collage. It gives you the opportunity to train yourself on what to expect after graduating. It is also very important to create and keep growing your personal network because you will may get incredible opportunities, offers, and they can also serve you as a reference contact whenever you need them.
