This window contains TWO summaries of internships at Hegg Companies, Inc.
Nick Gustafson (Class of 2004) My Augustana Business Internship was an amazing experience that opened doors for my career and taught me valuable lessons about the real world. I completed my internship with Hegg Companies, Inc., an industry leader in many areas, including commercial sales and leasing, commercial development, property management, and maintenance services. I could not have picked a better place to complete my business internship requirement. Hegg Companies, Inc. requested that I work on an Office Market Study and gave me complete ownership of the project. This task required advanced planning, plenty of driving, and many hours at the Minnehaha County courthouse. I spent eleven weeks on the project and gained an incredible amount of market knowledge. I fulfilled my personal goals of learning the Sioux Falls Commercial Real Estate market and had the pleasure of working with industry leaders, like Paul Hegg and Kristin Zueger. This was one of the best business experiences I had at Augie, and I joined the Hegg Team’s commercial brokerage division on June 1, 2004.
Mitchell Swanson (Class of 2004) The Hegg Companies real estate internship is an exciting and educational experience. With adequate guidance, interns were involved with individualized projects that are largely self-directed. These studies looked at multi-family housing and office properties in the Sioux Falls and greater areas. Interns were to utilize research and data compiling skills through computer work, traveling to properties and taking pictures, making telephone calls, working with government agencies, and finding information on the internet. Highly self-motivated people with an interest in business and real estate would work well in this internship.
