EXPO REAL 2018 - Career Day 2018 - A Complete Success
It’s on the third day of EXPO REAL that Career Day traditionally takes place. 44 companies all vying for the approval of students, graduates and young professionals – of whom there are more than ever before. The industry is doing well – and that’s also clear from the job market. Simon Kronberger, Associate Director Austria & CEE, Christie & Co: "Of course, with the current boom in the real estate industry and the momentum that the industry’s experiencing, everyone in every segment is looking for new talent, or just new employees – and so are we." Jan-Oliver Dahl, Head of Human Resources Germany, Cushman & Wakefield "If we look back 10 years and compare the situation with today – we have digitization and transformation processes in the real estate sector that are far from complete, and so we’re naturally relying on having junior staff who are totally familiar with all of that." The struggle to win over qualified graduates and students is getting tougher. Ellen Beuse, Junior Recruiting Specialist, BNP Paribas Real Estate "The real estate market is a fast-changing market and we simply need new talents, young talents, who bring in creativity – and for the future, they’ll drive the development we’re currently seeing on the market." Whether it's your first job or the next step in your career, Career Day at EXPO REAL offers students as well as graduates numerous options. Gabriel Ebong, Real Estate Studies Student, IUBH "When you’re a student like me, you always have a vision of where you want to go. And here, that vision keeps changing - just like the real estate sector does. " Sophie Gebauer, Working Student, Wuest & Partner "What I really liked is that all the companies in the real estate industry really are represented here, and that on day three you can actually get in contact with anyone at all and get their business cards. As a student, you’re told about everything you can do in the company." The number of participants among students and young professionals makes it clear: over 500 young people do active research into the future job market during Career Day.
