Sophomore: Architecture to Real Estate
Hey guys :)
I'm a rising sophomore getting a bachelors of architecture degree. I'm looking to possibly go into Real Estate, particularly development and other sectors that are more on the buildy/architecty side rather than the finance side. I have a few questions:
- What are key experiences/skills I should know and the best ways to learn them? Classes or learn on the job experience?
- What do real estate firms look for in new hires? To what extent are real estate firms looking for concrete skills vs more invisible stuff like soft skills/personality/leadership/critical thinking?
- When/how do people get real estate internships? Is it mostly networking and such? I know there's lots of opportunities for college students in finance and other banking jobs, but there seems to be fewer college-specific programs for real estate.
Thanks so much!
