Durham / Acre / Capital Markets Intern

Acre is a venture-backed real estate finance and technology company on a mission to create the best way to experience homeownership. Acre’s founders are seasoned entrepreneurs who believe that ownership matters and that buying a home need not be the biggest financial decision of your life. Acre’s model empowers people to buy high quality homes in great neighborhoods, share in the upside of ownership, and care for the home at a lower cost — and without any debt.

The Acre team is excited to offer an internship opportunity for a customer-focused, entrepreneurial mentee to support the development and implementation of Acre’s capital markets strategy. This person will work alongside Acre’s founding team at an especially interesting economic period of high interest rates, constrained supply, and limited price discovery. The Acre team’s hope is that upon completion, the intern will be better equipped to lead strategic efforts related to fundraising, new market entry, and financial analysis. Specific efforts during this internship may include:
+ Gathering, cleaning, and interpreting real estate data across multiple markets in the U.S.
+ Researching potential investors and debt providers — both venture and real estate

Acre will be bringing on one intern with strong analytical and communication skills (both verbal and written). This person should have an interest in entrepreneurship, finance, or investment management.

This is a paid internship. Weekly commitment and total duration are flexible.

Remote – Storage Scholars – Campus Co-Founder

Here at Storage Scholars, we do common things uncommonly well. We are a full service moving and storage company offering exceptionally convenient solutions for college students across the country. We are a rapidly growing company that values both personal and professional growth for our entire team. If you thrive in fast-paced environments with a “do what it takes” philosophy, this is the place for you.

We look for students that are gritty, tenacious, adaptable, and persistent. The operations and marketing intern role is a dynamic position that takes smart, hard-working students, and gives them the hard and soft skills to succeed in the business world. You will learn how to think, act, and execute like a business owner. At the end of it all, we want you to leave us ready to start your own company – THAT IS OUR GOAL.

So, what does it take to be a Storage Scholar?

Job Requirements:
freshman, sophomore, or junior at your university pursuing an undergraduate degree – all majors welcome to apply
an intense work ethic – we work until the job is done
a growth mindset – we want you to grow with the company
excellent problem solving skills – you must be able to think outside the box, and on your feet
leadership skills – you will be leading a group of your peers through the move-in and move-out process
exceptional communication skills – you interact with us, your customers, and your campus team constantly
a desire to learn – this role embodies “on-the-job” learning
high personal standards – everything we do is elite, and we expect your work to support that
the ability to hear and implement constructive feedback – on this team, we teach each other every single day
a high level of connectedness within your college campus – you are the boots on the ground marketing, and your campus success relies primarily on you
a jump right in, can-do attitude – “I can’t” is not in our team vocabulary

Job Responsibilities:
The internship program centers around 8 weeks of highly specialized training on a learning management system. You will work through weekly modules that instruct you on all aspects of our business, from back-end operations to client-facing interactions. Through this, you will gain exposure to high-level information as well and specific, complex processes. The LMS modules are manageable, but fast-paced: you must be able to absorb information quickly and efficiently to be successful. You must also demonstrate a strong personal responsibility for your learning.
As you go through the training program, you will take on tasks outside of the modules. The first few months of your internship (February-April), these tasks will focus almost entirely on marketing and sales. You will network with students and parents, speak to organizations and social groups, and more. Through these activities, you will develop the ability to efficiently and effectively communicate the value proposition of our service while successfully closing sales. Each week, you and your executive team lead will meet to discuss your training and evaluate your performance based on sales metrics. These metrics will be tracked throughout the sales period on your campus. At Storage Scholars, we set goals, and then we crush them. We have full faith that your performance will be no different in this regard.
After the sales period on your campus closes, the operations and logistics portion of your internship will begin. We are a service-based company that offers exceptionally convenient moving and storage for college students nationwide. In order to fulfill that purpose, we rely on the talent of exceptional students like you. If we had to summarize this portion of your internship in one sentence, we’d say that you “manage the process (from start to finish) of moving a student from their dorm to storage and back.” However, the operations side of your role is SO much more than just this. You are the point person and lead manager on your campus for everything related to getting students moved conveniently, efficiently, and successfully.
Of course, you won’t be able to do this alone. You have the support of Storage Scholars’ executive team, but you need physical labor to get all of this done. In the pursuit of our mission to develop the next generation of business leaders by providing meaningful job opportunities, we employ undergraduate students from your university to support you on the moving team. So, in addition to managing the high-level operations, you will also recruit and lead a team of your peers to make this all happen. This is an unbeatable opportunity to develop and polish your leadership skills in a real-world setting.
In your role, you will have opportunities to connect with the highest tier of professionals (yes, the elusive C-suite). We’ve all done some or all of your role at some point, so we’re here to guide you and help you. Plus, it’s not our first rodeo. We’ve watched student after student come into this role at the same place you are, and emerge with success they did not even know was possible. We are so excited for you to continue that track record of success.
So, are you ready to be our next operations and marketing intern?

This role demands your best input, and we believe in rewarding that. Our company was founded with the goal of reducing student debt through meaningful internship opportunities. As such, this role provides a competitive compensation package. The exact compensation varies from school to school, but on average, our marketing and operations interns make $17+ per hour they put in over the course of the semester. This has translated to anywhere from $5,000 to $21,000 for our most dedicated interns in the past.

Don’t just take our word for it! Here’s what our past interns have to say!
“Storage Scholars provides students with the real opportunity to implement theoretical studies with real-life scenarios. It expanded my knowledge of marketing, management, and sales. I learned everything from graphic design to Excel formulas. Storage Scholars allows you to become a business person while still at school.”
-Carter Shannon, 2021 Campus Intern

“The internship with Storage Scholars changed my life. It challenged me professionally like no other opportunity has, and it exposed me to a new side of the business world I didn’t know I enjoyed. I was trusted with a high-level of responsibility that pushed me to my full potential. If you are ready to commit to your professional success, this is the place for you.”
-Clare Mulholland, 2022 Campus Intern

“The position is a wonderful opportunity for students to manage and lead. The position vastly improved my organization, creativity and leadership skills, while also allowing me to get to know hundreds of students that I helped move out and into their college living spaces. You are put in some high stress situations, but those situations are reflective of the business world and you become a better person personally and professionally because of it. Additionally, the compensation structure allows your pay to be a product of the work you put in. I am incredibly thankful for my time at Storage Scholars.”
-Holden Buchanan, 2022 Campus Intern
