HEEF hosted Sixth Annual Career Day – November 1-2, 2012

The Harold E. Eisenberg Foundation hosted its sixth annual Career Day event on November 1-2, 2012.

One hundred students from schools across the Midwest, including DePaul University, University of Illinois at Chicago, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Indiana University, Notre Dame, John Marshall Law School, Marquette University, and University of Wisconsin, gathered for this two day event.  Career Day is an educational outreach forum designed for young people who are looking to build a career in real estate.

The experience included site tours of the Trump Tower and of 350 W. Hubbard.  Career Day also featured a Young Guns Panel and Networking Dinner at Gino’s East, where students learned about career paths from some of the brightest young “stars” in the real estate field.   The experience ended with a Roundtable Luncheon, where students had the opportunity to have intimate discussions with over 20 of the city’s top real estate professionals, and a Career/Internship Fair.

“Career Day allows college students to receive a 24-hour hands-on immersion in the real working world of Chicago real estate,” said Katie Wales, Executive Director of the Harold E. Eisenberg Foundation.

“I learned more in the last 24 hours than I have in all my classes,” said one student.
