UW Crest

Top real estate firms from across the country registered to meet with Wisconsin Real Estate students both virtually and in-person in Madison for the opportunity to connect with young real estate Badgers at 2022 Fall Real Estate Career Fairs. From development to lending, the companies represented every sector of the real estate industry. With the Wisconsin Real Estate Program’s strong reputation and our track record of successful alums, companies were excited to meet our current students. In total, 68 companies and over 250 students attended both fairs.  These events provided a great opportunity for undergraduate, MBA, and MS students to form valuable relationships with many of the companies with which they hope to eventually secure internships and full-time positions.

Students and Employers talking

Greg Reed, Associate Director of the Grasskamp Center, shared his thoughts on the events, “Career Fairs are an efficient and effective part of the career placement process for both undergraduate and graduate real estate students alike. Students get to visit with multiple firms all at once while employers can efficiently meet with students and gauge which ones might be candidates for further consideration.”

September 21 – Virtual Real Estate Career Fair

The Virtual Real Estate Career Fair offered students the chance to talk to companies in one-on-one time slots. The structure of the virtual fair is appreciated by many students and employers. While no face to face interaction takes place, by planning and scheduling out meetings time is used very efficiently.

September 22 – Fall Real Estate Club Career Fair

On September 22, the Pyle Center hosted a record number of real estate students and employers at the Real Estate Club’s Fall Career Fairs.  The fair had three separate rooms full of employers, and students made their way around the venue for two hours of shaking hands, learning more about career opportunities, and talking real estate. Countless resumes were traded for business cards, and by the end of the day, it was clear that the fair was a success.

The in-person fair was hosted and run by the Wisconsin Real Estate Club, and students also want to thank the Wisconsin Real Estate Alumni Association, the Graaskamp Center for Real Estate for supporting the Career Fairs. If you missed the fair, there will be another opportunity to attend the Spring Real Estate Club Career Fair slated for February 8, 2023.
