For me, this internship is more than just a great experience of working, playing, and enjoying the city of Detroit; it’s about developing skills, morals and principles that I am going to have and use for the rest of my life.
I am in my seventh week here and have learned a lot already. I can’t believe all the man power that goes into this establishment to make Quicken Loans an amazing place to work.
I have really enjoyed getting to experience the culture that Quicken Loans has developed across all teams within the company. It is truly one of a kind.
I think it’s so important to not only be socially and physically aware of our surroundings and situations, but also of global issues in the world. These two ISMs remind me that I need to engage in the world I’m living in by always having my eyes open and my ears perked up.
The way it works is that there are challenges every week and the goal is to complete as many as possible to earn points. Those interns with the most points at the end of the week earn prizes! Pretty cool, huh?
As a “street team” member, I was asked to join a small group of interns to hit the streets and advertise for the Detroit Downtown Days.
Before I had this opportunity, I was biased about the city because I didn’t know anything about it. I didn’t understand it or see the good that’s happening here right now. I can now truthfully say that I appreciate the city of Detroit and all that it has to offer.
The internship program has opened my eyes through activities like our bus tour, events around the city and participating in D-Tour. I’ve seen and visited places that I’d never known existed and have found an insane amount of new hang-out spots to come to.
Interning at Quicken Loans is already an amazing experience and a great opportunity for young people to get into the workforce, but working in downtown Detroit is one of the biggest payoffs of having this job.
I have six weeks left of my internship at In-House Realty and there’s so much to learn I can’t wait to experience everything this internship still has to offer.
