HR&A Advisors is a top real estate and economic development consulting firm. We provide strategic advisory services for clients in the public, private, and non-profit sectors to solve some of the most complex challenges of urban development. Our projects range in scale from buildings to neighborhoods, public parks to infrastructure systems, and from program design and management to public policy development and implementation. We care about improving the quality of urban life, and we are increasingly focused on the challenges of inclusivity, infrastructure, and technological innovation in cities as we advance public-private development projects that improve economic, environmental, and social outcomes.

We are former public servants, real estate developers, urban planners, city officials, activists, and economists. We are unique in our ability to create value by integrating disparate disciplines for our clients, and we often lead teams with engineers, architects, lawyers, community organizers, and other specialists. We are a tight-knit team that works across the country and around the world from offices in New York, Dallas, Los Angeles, Raleigh, and Washington, DC.

We are seeking full-time Summer Analyst Fellows for 12 weeks in our New York, Dallas, Los Angeles, Raleigh, and Washington, DC offices. Our analytical staff form the foundation of our team-oriented and collaborative structure, and help to drive our data-driven approach to city building. Many current members of HR&A’s team started as Summer Analyst Fellows.

Summer Analyst Fellows are asked to take on responsibilities in line with those of the core analytical staff at HR&A. Day-to-day tasks range from project to project, and often include market analysis; case study research; econometric modeling; spatial analysis; preparation of real estate pro formas for a range of uses and public-private structures; and public policy analysis. Analysts also help prepare written reports, presentations, and Excel models for clients, as well as firm marketing materials and proposals for new projects.

HR&A is accepting applications from candidates who have earned their Bachelor’s degree and may be working towards completion of an advanced degree, preferably with a concentration in urban planning, real estate finance, economic development, public policy, and/or housing finance. We are looking for candidates with strong quantitative and qualitative skills, a passion for urban development and policy, and a deep curiosity about the challenges and opportunities facing cities today. Our new team members will learn quickly, possess excellent written and verbal communication skills; and be able to manage multiple assignments at once. They will think independently, act entrepreneurially, and pay attention to the details. Ideal analysts will bring a demonstrated capacity for leadership, critical thinking, and creativity.

Full-time Fellows will be paid a monthly stipend based on experience and qualifications.

HR&A is committed to attracting and retaining a talented, diverse, competitive team of professionals dedicated to solving the challenges of urban life. Women, people of color, members of the LGBT community, individuals with disabilities, and veterans are strongly encouraged to apply.
