The Runstad Department of Real Estate held its bi-annual career fair on February 10th. This event is a great opportunity for students to “lean in” and practice their networking skills. The fair brought 30 firms from all aspects of the industry, including: office, mixed use, retail, industrial, multifamily, single use, and finance. Over one hundred graduate and undergraduate students attended, seeking internship and job opportunities.
We are fortunate to have such amazing support from the real estate community. Many thanks to all the firms that participated. Our next career fair will be on May 12th. If you are a firm interested in participating, please reach out to Melissa Best, email@example.com
