The Foundation’s annual Career Day is part of our ongoing effort to provide education programs and opportunities to real estate students and young professionals. This event is an educational outreach forum designed for young people who are looking to build a career in real estate.
Each year, Career Day attracts students from all over the country, providing them with an opportunity to learn from top executives and to gain insight and experience into this ever changing field. This unparalleled opportunity is provided to students for minimal costs.
In October 2013, the Foundation hosted it’s Seventh Annual Career Day. The experience included a presentation on the evolution of River North by Jason Friedman followed by site tours of Friedman Properties’ AMLI River North and the Hotel Triplex of Marriot Fairfiled, Hyatt Place and Starwood Aloft. This was followed by 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 following day, the students enjoyed a presentation by Rand Diamond, Principal of GlenStar Properties, and following site tour of GlenStar’s Park Monroe building at 55 E. Monroe. 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 Job/Internship Fair.
