Brentwood School Summer Internship Program

The goal of Brentwood School’s Summer Internship Program is to provide our upper school students and college-age alumni with real life work experiences in a wide range of professional settings—architecture, business, entertainment, finance, law, hospitality, journalism, marketing and PR, media, medicine, non-profits, radio and T.V., technology, and web-based companies.

This program was established during the 2006-07 school year as a means to provide our rising juniors, seniors, and graduating seniors with some meaningful “real world” work experiences and exposure to various careers. Another goal was to give our students the tools to create a resume as well as some invaluable experience interviewing.

In 2006-07 eight internships were offered; this past summer there were 55 students placed in 40 different internships. The feedback from both internships sponsors and the interns themselves continues to be very positive. With most of the sponsors from this past summer wishing to be on-board again and with new interest expressed by some of our parents and alumni, the program is certain to continue its dynamic growth.

Press, Real Estate – Know Where Your Money Is Coming From

Knowing the origin of a buyer’s capital is becoming more prevalent in the Los Angeles market, according to Andrew Kirsh, a founding partner at law firm Sklar Kirsh. Foreign buyers and foreign capital is clearly becoming more and more common in the market, and as a result, sellers are using the same type of representations more commonly required by lenders. While these so-called know-your-buyer provisions have been in place for more than a decade, seller’s have increased requirements over the past six to 12 months.
