NIC Internship Program

“Throughout my internship, I looked for places where I could add value and came away knowing much more about the industry. The internship also allowed me to hit the ground running when I joined Belmont full time nine months later. Internships really can become what you make of them.”

– Richard Wang, Vice President of Investments & Strategy, Belmont Village Senior Living.
