Seven local high school students recently completed Wilmington developer The Buccini/Pollin Group’s first internship program designed to expose students to the many aspects of real estate development prior to graduation. The goal of the three-week, paid internship is to show students a variety of potential careers and connect them with pathways for future employment either at BPG or other real estate and construction firms.
“The goal of the program was really to inspire interest in future career paths by providing real-world work experience in an office setting,” said Sarah Lamb, Vice President of Design, Marketing, & Community Outreach for The Buccini/Pollin Group. “We will consider the program a success when our students return after high school to apply for our college internships, post-graduate positions, and so forth.”
