Human Resources (HR) Intern

New Home Star

Business Internship

We are looking for a motivated, detailed, and service-oriented professional who is looking for a fun and flexible workplace that encourages innovation. While we are proud to have flourished these past ten years in the real estate industry, we still classify ourselves as a growing company. There are countless opportunities for someone in this position to quickly move up our Career Path. We're growing, fun, ambitious, and highly motivated to succeed. This combination creates an environment where you can develop professionally and find a long-term place for your career aspirations. Our Corporate Support Office is located in the heart of downtown Elmhurst and is not your typical “corporate” setting. We embrace collaboration with an open office concept. Imagine an office where the fridge is never empty, whiteboards are on walls, and ESPN is playing in the background. Company-branded hoodies are the norm, and neckties hardly exist. We love our company culture, and truly value the time we share with one another. From celebrating holidays in the office with potlucks and team outings to getting out and giving back to our local community, and receiving generous time off to spend with our friends and family, this is an awesome place to work!

We have created a culture that has been honored with multiple awards, including Crain's Chicago Best Places to Work and Top CEO!
