Our third interview with our College Associates is with Jack Hatlen, also returning for his second year in the Leasing Department.
Question #1: What motivated you to pursue an internship at S.C. Swiderski?
I pursued an internship with S.C. Swiderski when I saw it advertised on the UW-Stout Career link page. I wanted to do a residential property management internship, but I was having a hard time finding a program like this in Wisconsin.
Question #2: What was your favorite thing about your experience?
My favorite thing about my internship has been getting to know the tenants throughout the leasing process. It is very satisfying to show prospective tenants an apartment, and then move them into the apartment a few weeks later.
Question #3: What is your dream job?
I think my dream job would be to own a few rental properties of my own and flip houses as well.
Question #4: What are your plans over the next year?
I will be graduating from UW-Stout in the Spring of 2020. Over the next few months I will be weighing my options for post-graduation. I would like to pursue different areas of property management to gain more experience, and a better understanding of the industry as a whole!
