As I'm graduating Spring of 2019, I'm preparing myself to answer the common "why CRE" interview question (while I'm also trying to answer the question for myself). Currently, I don't have a great answer, I just know this is what I want to do for my career. I like looking at buildings, I like finance, I like that this industry lets you "create your own destiny" and I feel like I'm going to like the culture of this industry. It's something I've been dwelling on, and I'm wondering how you answered the question when asked, or if you have not been asked, now is your chance. Curious to hear yalls input on why you chose this industry. Thanks!
