"My experience as an intern at Calkain exceeded my initial expectations wholly. Upon walking in my first day I knew little about business, real estate, and net lease aside from my modest amount of business courses under my belt being only a rising sophomore. The tasks I was assigned were all meaningful. I got exposed to legal and business documentation I otherwise would have never seen working a different job. Aside from that I have also been able to pick up a fair amount of mathematics specifically tailored to the industry. I’ve learned more than I thought I would, and none of it took a textbook. This experience has taught me to be self-sufficient; however, no employees of any of the offices will turn you down should you need some direction. I’d definitely say this internship is an ideal foundation for those wanting to get into any sort of business in the future."

"My experience at calkain was nothing short of amazing. As soon as I walked through the door on my first day I felt like I was part of a fun productive and Caring environment. I was taught many of the important tools necessary to understand the real estate market. By the end of my time at calkain I felt more like an asset to the company than an intern who didn't know the first thing about real estate. I would highly recommend this internship to anyone who is interested in getting involved in the industry."
Nathan Harris, Summer 2012 - University of Maryland
"My internship with Calkain has been wonderful and I really enjoyed
that the experience was tailored to my specific interests. I had the
pleasure of working with very talented and helpful people who made my
time at Calkain so very rewarding. Working on my project [click to view] has
definitely prepared me for my future endeavors and I highly recommend
this internship to all my peers. I strongly believe that it is the
best opportunity to develop valuable skills for ones academic and/or working career. Directly after the internship I moved on to pursue a
master's degree. Only two weeks into the program I realized that the
Calkain internship experience has effectively prepared me for my
graduate level classes as well as giving me a competitive edge over
Rafael Kania, Former Calkain Intern
"My internship at Calkain was a great and memorable experience for me! I loved the modern and pleasant corporate atmosphere which differs from the one in Russian companies. In addition, other employees, despite their intense schedule, were eager to help and to carefully explain every task."
Dasha Babashka, Former Calkain Intern
"I never really thought that I could learn so much in one summer. I started my internship thinking that I would be photocopying or
something like that, but instead I had the opportunity to learn from seasoned professionals who love what they do. After the work I did this summer, I am starting to see how an effective office works and what it takes to be successful."
Philip Cieplak, Former Calkain Intern
"I could go on for hours discussing what I’ve learned from Calkain, but one of the largest benefits I’ve gained is a great sense of business maturity. Everyone throughout the company had a true passion for what they were doing, and the approach taken on a daily basis allowed me to gain a sense of what it takes to be successful in business. This is an intangible that can’t be advertised, but it’s one of the things that I value most from my experience at Calkain."
Shane Scanlon, Former Calkain Intern
"Interning at Calkain was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I doubt anything else could have prepared as well for ‘the real world’. Unlike many internships which consist of busy work, I was able to work autonomously in a professional and pleasant environment. Everyone within Calkain is more than helpful and supportive. I enjoyed my time here and undoubtedly would not be as successful without the help, support, foundation and knowledge I gained from this experience. "
Danielle Pike, Former Calkain Intern
"I thoroughly enjoyed my time here at Calkain. If you are a self-motivated individual, you will thrive in this environment. Perhaps the greatest part of this internship is you are able to decide what you want to focus on and are in charge of your own project. I came in this job thinking I was going to shadow or do administrative work, when in fact it was quite the opposite. There is truly something for everybody regardless of your major. It is a wonderful environment to work in and everyone in the office is there to answer any questions. "
Chris Caswell, Former Calkain Intern
"My time at Calkain has broadened my real estate horizons more than I ever could have imagined. The immense knowledge and experience has led me to possess a greater passion for the real estate business and has also provided me with experience I can refer to throughout my life. Everyone at Calkain is one big family and it was an honor to have the chance to work with them as well as learn what it takes to be successful in the business world. I knew every day spent at the office, that I would be leaving having learned something new. This goes to show me this is not just any internship but something much more valuable and meaningful. "
Skylar Stein, Former Calkain Intern
"My favorite aspect of my internship here at Calkain was that I could work independently in completing meaningful projects. Much to my surprise; I was never asked to make coffee or given busywork. From my first day here, I jumped right in to a project that suited my interests. It was beneficial to have the chance to work among different divisions during my time here so that I could gain a broader understanding of the real estate industry. Most importantly I was able to work with an office full of great people who were willing to share their insights with me. Everyone here has always been there to answer my questions or explain a concept to me. My time at Calkain has exceeded my expectations while providing me with the chance to gain valuable experience in the real estate sector. "
