We collaborated with the Careers Building Communities project because we strongly believe that this is the right solution to help usher in the next great generation of real estate and property managers.

Today, 29 real estate industry organizations, representing more than 10 million jobs, announced a ground-breaking collaboration to highlight the diverse career paths within the real estate sector.

The first initiative of this collaboration is a new website entitled Careers Building Communities (http://www.CareersBuildingCommunities.org), which allows visitors to navigate through the scores of career paths across all sectors of real estate. For the first time, students in high school, college, technical programs, and community colleges can explore possible career pathways within real estate by taking an interactive quiz and discovering career opportunities.

As the industry seeks to fill millions of jobs, this site serves as an all-inclusive resource for students, educators, career changers, and other stakeholders to explore the unlimited opportunities in the field of real estate.

“BOMI International has served the industry of real estate professionals for almost 50 years,” said Jeffrey Horn, President and CEO of BOMI International. “During that time, the function of the commercial real estate property and facility professional has changed dramatically. The industry now finds itself within a generational transition. With many of the industry’s Baby Boomers retiring, the industry looks to Millennials to take their place. We collaborated with the Careers Building Communities project because we strongly believe that this is the right solution to help attract new entrants to our vital industry and usher in the next great generation of commercial real estate property and facility professionals.”
