Blair Ord ’13 – Exploring His Options
Blair is a Finance major with an interest in real estate. Understanding that financial analysis is a significant component of commercial real estate, Blair chose to do his internship at Marcus & Millichap. Marcus & Millichap focuses in three areas: real estate financing, sales, and market analysis.
From the Classroom to the Job
Through connections with alumni and students who had previously interned at Marcus & Millichap, Blair secured an internship for the spring semester of his senior year. Within the first few weeks of working, he is already getting experience that he can use in the future.
“The most important experience I have had so far is updating a proposal with current information and market analysis for a commercial property and the surrounding areas. The proposal will be used in an upcoming client meeting,” Blair reported. “Taking initiative was very important for this particular task. This is something that I can apply to any job in the future.”
Small School, Big Opportunities
Working closely with faculty and staff is a definite advantage to Menlo College. Blair has been able to get the knowledge in the classroom and build skills on the sports field that he is using every day in his internship.
