Intern ops in PA? Best way to learn this summer? - Posted by Alex

Posted by Alex on February 06, 2002 at 06:09:30:

I apologize in advance if I?m making any posting faux pas.

I am currently a sophomore econ major in Philadelphia, PA. I am interested in learning more about RE this summer through either an internship or another educational opportunity you might suggest. If my goal were to learn what the collective “you” do, how best I learn? What type of internship should I seek? Perhaps there’s a successful someone out there in the PA area who needs an apprentice to get him coffee and make photocopies while picking up some pointers.

I’m in the fortunate situation of being taken care of for another two years until I graduate with reasonable amounts of free time and I was wondering if trying to do RE deals part-time during college is a feasible (or good) idea.

Also, could you recommend any books or courses to me, the absolute but motivated beginner?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks very much,
