Background Information

With the help of his son Jeff Kurtz, he has now led the corporation to great success as a top leader in the northeast that owns and operates over 75 investment properties located in Connecticut, Delaware, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. The Kamson Corporation consists of about 10,000 units of residential and commercial real estate in the Tri-state area.

Summary of Internship

At the Kamson Corporation you will learn so much if you really pay full attention. So much stuff goes on in the corporation. There is always something to do. My job is to learn as much as I can even if it means that I must make copies all day. I have done so much in the last three to four months that I have interned there. I have learned things such as improving my computer skills to actually working with the different databases used in the company. Not only have I had a real feel about how it feels to work as an accountant but I have also learned how technology applies to this career. This internship has given me the opportunity to learn so much interesting things that I never knew and that I know I will need to know later in life.
