2.  Our company is looking to hire a paid intern or two for a recurring summer project, and I was hoping that you may be able to provide some resumes from OSU students who might be interested.

StanCorp Mortgage Investors originates and services commercial mortgage loans.  Our current servicing portfolio has over 6,000 loans with a total principal balance over $8B.  Each year we receive operating statements (P&L and rent roll) on all our loans and perform an analysis to determine whether the loan is healthy and performing.  The interns working on this project analyze these operating statements, which gives them the opportunity to review and evaluate a large number of small business financial statements and provides great insight into the world of real estate finance.  The ideal intern would be an accounting or finance major who is interested in real estate.  We would like someone who has a year or two of school left (i.e., someone who may be able to work more than just one summer).  Several of these past interns have been hired on full time into various roles (loan processors, closers, and analysts).

Please let me know what you think.

Thanks!

3.  I am the newly elected treasurer for the South Santiam Area Habitat for Humanity and would like to provide your students an opportunity to gain some experience with a local, Non-Profit organization. We have a lot of work to do in terms of our finances, and we want to be good stewards of the funds that are entrusted to us. Unfortunately, none of the board members have a background in accounting, and we are all frustrated with trying to understand the financial side of our business. I’m hoping to get some reinforcements.

Below is a list of the three main areas that I see our greatest opportunities for improvement.

Analysis on our retail hardware store (The ReStore) in order to set budgets, sales goals, labor levels, store hours, etc.

Escrow account balancing – we have recently absorbed another HfH branch where homeowner Escrow payments were pooled. We would like to restore the proper amounts of funds to each homeowner.

Budgeting – this could be our greatest opportunity moving forward. Currently, there is no system in place for determining or tracking the cost to build a house. Budgeting for the ReStore is also needed.

Our bookkeeper tracks everything in QuickBooks, so whoever is willing to help will get some great experience with that software.
