What responsibilities should I ask for at my unpaid internship?
At the moment, I am working for a boutique real estate developer who also does small time IB/capital fundraising (10-20 million range). He has me currently preparing a financial memorandum for a hospitality development project in the due diligence phase.
In terms of other work, he told me I was going to work on preparing informational package to submit to the city government to obtain inexpensive govt. sponsored financing. The city where I am working at is offering cheap financing to hotel developments. He also mentioned analyzing energy efficiency data to discover if our project qualifies for some.. government program, not sure yet.
I have purchased the REFM real estate courses and will study it in the next few days but doubt my boss would allow me to do much with modeling.
For next summer, I would ideally want to work for an opportunity fund(#1 preference), REIT, or REIB. With that in mind, what are some tasks I should try to proactively assume responsibility for?
