3 questions why an internship at Resi #rocks

 

Shrey Yadav was part of our team for the last 6 months, it was his first step into his professional career in the Netherlands.

With your background in engineering and architecture, why did you decided to join our Resi team?
My aim was to get more familiar with the real estate market in the Netherlands. And to learn in-depth how investors and the developers in the residential market work. Since Resi is a new and upcoming firm, and the founders have proven experience in the residential sector, doing an internship at the company was a great chance to be a part of this right from the beginning.

What have you noticed in our field of work?
During the internship, I developed a keen interest towards the Dutch capital markets. What I bring with me after this internship is a more holistic view. Especially since, here at Resi, we are incorporating both the investors and developers point of view into constructive consultancy and tangible solutions in bringing together supply and demand.

What have you picked up and will take with you in your professional career?
The way of working at Resi and the approach taken towards all of the clients demands, has helped me develop my numerical and analytical skills, and an extremely systematic way of thinking.

Working at Resi was the beginning of my professional career in the Netherlands. With the right mix of professionalism and a personal touch at the company, I felt highly motivated every day to work on the ongoing projects and to see the results at the end of the day. Alexander and Robbert are extremely knowledgeable about the Dutch residential market. At the same time, they are easy to approach and are more than willing to help with any doubts or hinderances I faced at work. Also, after completing the internship, they have remained mentors and friends, and are always there to guide you in the right direction.

Bonus question: what is your final conclusion about Resi?
This internship wouldn’t be the same without my colleagues at Resi. Over the last few months we developed a bond, right from working together on the various projects, to having lunch together every day and the numerous games of ping-pong. I am extremely glad that I was able to do this internship and to take the learnings from here to the next stages of my professional and personal life.
