We Asked The Interns – With Elisabetta Cibo’… it gives me the chance to learn new and interesting things

For many years AMSI has been offering marketing, accounting and property management internships to young people from all over the world. Every intern had an impact on the daily business and has become a part of the AMSI family. We were wondering about their reasons to go abroad. Moreover what their overall experience is and how they benefit from taking their internship at AMSI.

Today we introduce you to Elisabetta Cibo’ from Italy who joined AMSI San Francisco for a marketing internship.

Elisabetta CiboI’m Elisabetta from Rome in Italy. I have a degree in History of Modern Art and continued my studying Art Management and Marketing in Florence.

I’ve already been in San Francisco many times and already lived here for a couple months. However, I’ve never had the opportunity to work here and to get to know the American working environment. Therefore this stay is a completely different experience: I will stay in this beautiful city for a long time and will gain valuable knowledge and experience working for an American Real Estate company.

When I arrived at the AMSI office for the first time I was pleasantly surprised by the beauty of the place. It’s a typical large and bright San Franciscan building and whether it’s the mangers, agents or interns, everyone is very kind. I felt a nice sense of comfort, a family like environment that permeates the AMSI office.

Working with AMSI as a marketing intern gives me the chance to learn new and interesting things. I’ve learned a lot about the Real Estate Market, which is much more developed in San Francisco than in other cities. Furthermore I’ve learned how to advertise and promote hundreds of properties. Since there are many people working at the office and also clients coming in or calling, I’m also improving my communication and language skills.

I observe the brilliant “American working culture” very closely, and it’s very interesting and exciting. Thanks to this great experience I want to improve day after day, learning as much as I can.

 Young People’s Impact on AMSI

Young People’s Impact on AMSI

AMSI works with highly-skilled, reliable, ambitious and fun interns from all over the world. Most of the interns are from Europe, but many are also from China, Korea, Japan and many other countries.

The AMSI Intern Program includes a vast variety of duties in each department; from Marketing to Property Management to Accounting. During their 3, 6, 12 and sometimes 18 month internships, AMSI involves the interns in every day tasks and challenging projects to encourage them to reach their goals. AMSI’s goal is to support them in growing professionally and personally, whether it is to get to know more about the American working culture, improving their language skills or in gaining a great life experience in a foreign country. While the interns learn a lot during their internships, AMSI in return gains much as well due to the great knowledge, skills and personalities, which every single intern brings to the company.

AMSI CFO and Broker Robb Fleischer says: “It is a great opportunity to work with young and ambitious people from all over the world who bring their very own culture to the company. For AMSI it is gratifying to watch the intern’s learning process, how they improve their language skills, how the individuals achieve their goals and how they help AMSI grow further. It has always been an advantage for AMSI to build long-term friends. This kind of bonding process causes some sort of family atmosphere, which means that working at AMSI is challenging as well as comfortable at the same time.”

Since the intern program started about 8 years ago, the people who work at AMSI have had the wonderful opportunity to meet terrific interns from all over the world. Oftentimes it is not easy for the AMSI staff to say “goodbye, auf Wiedersehen or au revoir” to many of those wonderful and fascinating interns. This is especially so after seeing them growing and becoming a part of the AMSI family. But as Fleischer says to every intern at his or her farewell ceremony: “You will always be a part of the AMSI family”. It definitely is true and the interns go home still being a part of AMSI due to the great impact the experience has had on their lives and the impact they have had on AMSI during their internship.
