LivCor, a Blackstone portfolio company, is a real estate asset management business specializing in multi-family housing. Formed in 2013 and headquartered in Chicago, LivCor is currently responsible for a portfolio of over 400 Class A and B properties comprising more than 150,000 units in markets across the United States.
Our business is focused on making real estate more valuable. But for us, it’s more than that. It’s people first, community always. It’s a life-filled career, not just a career-filled life. It’s doing good work, with good humans, and making a difference. It’s in all its forms. Ultimately, we create great places to work, live, and grow. We do that by focusing on leaving people – and places – better than we found them.
Whew! Still with us? Cool. Let’s talk about where you’d fit in.
Here’s the deal:
Our Strategic Initiatives team builds deep partnerships with critical vendors to optimize resident satisfaction, on-site team efficiency, and bottom-line growth. Our goal is to obtain in industry pricing, generate NOI, find vendor-driven solutions for our properties and residents, and provide expertise and guidance to both our operating partners and our fellow . This internship was created to develop and invest in future talent. We call them interns but really, we are talking about future leaders. These super cool humans are hired for a 10-week immersive experience where they learn the fundamentals of strategic initiatives in the multifamily industry in addition to experiencing the culture of LivCor (which, by the way, is pretty great).
During the ’internship’, you would support a range of projects that directly help our business grow and become even better. We immediately welcome you as a part of our collaborative culture and give you the opportunity to build enduring relationships with your fellow interns, team leader, and assigned mentor.
You also have the opportunity to meet a lot of interesting people through organized social events (we desperately don’t want you to think we are talking about networking because that really doesn’t capture what you can get out of this). Finally, you will work with an assigned mentor to own a project and knock the executive leadership team’s fancy no-show socks off. You may work on other things that we haven’t thought of because our crystal ball is broken and we’re pretty flexible here.
This position is based out of headquarters at Willis Tower in Chicago, IL. This office has snacks and potentially will very shortly have Nerf Guns if the team gets its way.
Our 2024 summer internship program will begin June 2024 and last through August 2024. To be eligible, you must be a rising senior college student during the time of the internship program. (To the group of Racoons in a hoody and Vans masquerading as a student, please do not apply again, we saw through that last year. Humans only, and thx).
Here are some of the things the team will have you work on:
Here’s a little about what your background might be:
What we offer:
We know that if we take care of our team everything else will fall into place. We aren’t perfect, but we will try to set very clear expectations, always let you know where you stand, and do everything in our power to kickstart your career.
Our culture and values matter to us. A lot. We’re definitely not serious but we take this stuff seriously, if you get what we mean. We want a place that is an ego-free zone. A place where good people do good things together. It shouldn’t be science in workplaces, but for some reason it still is? We’re absolutely determined to be different, and we think we’re doing a pretty good job at it. We have a CEO who makes fun of himself, and who will encourage you to tell him when he is wrong. In fact, he needs people to – we all do. Supportive challenge is good, it’s how we get better. We like getting better. We also love diversity, of all kinds. We need people who look, sound, speak, love, and exist differently from one another. This isn’t at the end of this paragraph because it’s an afterthought. It’s SO important to us we want it to stand out.
If any of this sounds interesting, then maybe we are a fit. Life is too short to work with people you don’t like. whatever you do, don’t make that mistake.
