Even before he had graduated from college, Brandon Baksh was sporting quite the resume.
The Queens native, who majored in finance at Baruch College and minored in business law and political science, scored internships early on. During his freshman and sophomore years, he worked at JPMorgan Chase’s real estate division. By his senior year, he was interning at Dwight Capital, a full-service nationwide mortgage banking firm specializing in Federal Housing Administration (FHA), U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), bridge and mezzanine financing.
“I made a contact at JPMorgan who got me an internship at Dwight Capital,” said Baksh, who works on originating HUD loans throughout the country. “I was their first intern. After I graduated, I went full-time.”
