Intern - Finance - Summer 2024

Job Locations US-IL-Chicago

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 excellence 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 Finance 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 financial planning, analysis, and reporting in addition to experiencing the culture of LivCor (which, by the way, is pretty great).


During the ’internship’, you will 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 your capstone 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.


Our 2024 summer analyst internship program will begin June 2024 and last through August 2024. To be eligible, you must be a college rising senior during the time of the internship program. This position is based out of LivCor’s headquarters at Willis Tower in Chicago, IL.

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 rocket 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. So, whatever you do, don’t make that mistake.


The LivCorian Values

  1. Be you. Be Real. Be Open. You do you. Together, we will do something amazing.
  2. Care, Always. We don’t want to let anyone down.
  3. Courageously Curious. We love to learn, even when it hurts.
  4. Help Others Win, Be A Good Neighbor. This is about ‘We, not Me.’
  5. Relentless Hustle, Heart & Humility. Work hard. Be Kind. Make Better.
