A.E. Schwartz & Associates, Stoughton, MA
Fall 2012/Winter 2013: Internship/Externship Opportunities
Several former interns are now partners with equity. Each started as interns with A.E. Schwartz & Associates. Our atmosphere is relaxed, focused, practical, hands-on and more of a mentor/partnership approach where each intern will be valued as an active and important team member. Internship spaces are limited.
Philosophy Towards Students/Interns: A mentoring interaction with each intern and extern develops a mutually beneficial relationship. Each intern/extern is given hands-on responsibilities, and our organization continues to grow due to the skills, participation, and involvement that each intern contributes. In many instances, professional relationships with former students/interns evolve long after the formal internship's/externship's conclusion. Since our organization is a small but growing sole proprietorship, I can ensure that you will not spend the majority of your time on mind-numbing office work. Interns are given significant projects which match their unique abilities and potential equity in projects and profits. Extern's are involved in meeting via conference calls, speaker phone, web and encouraged to visit here in Boston. While they are not present we make certain they are a part of the team virtually.
Our organization is growing and our internship/externship program has always provided hands-on/project-driven opportunities to learn and make real-world contributions.
Our interns are responsible for their own housing and expenses.
We require: a specific "email" cover letter to better understand your interests, a resume, references (names and numbers) and any collateral information. We will contact you within 7-10 business days to discuss your application in greater detail if we see a potential match. We always encourage applicants to follow up via email and/or phone within 7-10 days after submitting their information.
As you will see from the description below, A.E. Schwartz & Associates is an exciting place. We await your reply and thoughts.
