Real estate is often viewed as a fragmented industry largely due to the diverse property types and complexities that surround the construction, development, and management of real estate assets. With the changing demographics, technological advances and the overall way in which people live, work and play have created enormous opportunities for real estate professionals. One consistent theme among all stakeholders is the increased need for talent. Job growth in the real estate industry is projected to grow exponentially, due to the aging workforce and the demand for skilled talent is at an all time high particularly in construction as new buildings come online and older buildings are being renovated. Seventy seven percent of Real Estate and Construction firms agree that they expect their jobs to change considerably over the next three to five years as a result of digital business trends. These companies are rethinking their approach to talent, employee experience and organizational culture.
Organizations that represent all facets of real estate recognized the need to collectively identify commonalities that exist within each sector as well as share insights about the diverse opportunities that are available to those considering a career in real estate. Careers Building Communities is a platform designed for students, educators, and other individuals to explore the industry and learn more about what it takes to obtain education and employment within each sector.
We invite you to explore these career paths and connect with our participating organizations to identify opportunities and “next steps” that lead to a rewarding career in real estate.
We’d love to hear from you about Careers Building Communities. Please reach out with your input, suggestions and questions.
