Tyana Viss, Class of 2009
I completed my internship at CorTrust mortgage. Throughout my internship I was able to participate in essentially the entire process of a mortgage. From origination to processing to underwriting, and on to servicing, I participated in it all. At CorTrust they do not sell the mortgages off like many other companies do, so they service the loans from beginning to end. Throughout my internship I completed many projects that included things like taxes, insurance, title/appraisals, servicing packages, paying bills, escrow analysis, putting together new files, and many more activities. It was a great experience because not only was it challenging and educational it was a fantastic environment. It is a small company that has a great team atmosphere. I definitely learned something new everyday, and it was an exciting time to be working in the field because it was such a busy time. I learned more about the mortgage industry than I thought was possible through a 120 hour internship, and I am very thankful for the experience that this internship provided me with. I am now much better equipped to enter the work force after graduation.
