UW Real Estate Club students attend Spring Career Fair

Posted By Paige Riemann, Tuesday, February 18, 2020



On Monday, February 10th, over 25 employers came to UW for the spring semester Real Estate Club Career Fair to meet with dozens of undergraduate and MBA students to make connections and discuss employment opportunities.

The event was organized by students, Tan Tran (MBA 2020), and Connor McCarthy (BBA 2020). The duo also organized the first ever fall semester Career Fair, where over 45 companies were present. In total over 70 companies came from all over the country and various areas of the industry to meet our students this school year. 

Tran explained the decision to add the Fall Career Fair to the REC roster of events, "This year is the first year that the REC has organized a Career Fair for both the spring and fall.  Organizing the two career fairs brings many benefits to our students, including fostering our program’s competitive advantage and increasing student connections to the real estate markets."


The Spring Career Fair was held on campus at Union South, and started with a networking session with hor d’oeuvres at high-top tables where employers and students were able to meet one another. Then, the group ate dinner together before the Career Fair, to further get to know one another while enjoying a delicious meal. 

Next students shared their elevator pitches and resumes with the employers who had set up booths in the Varsity Room. Afterwards, the employers and students attended a Reception and cocktail hour at The Sett at Union South. 

Junior and Career Fair organizer, Connor McCarthy says “As UW-Madison students, we are incredibly fortunate that employers go out of their way to attend the career fair every year. It speaks to the strength of our real estate program and our robust alumni network. We are privileged to have an amazing team in the career services office that works diligently to meet the career needs of both students and employers. Because we are so fortunate, students should  prepare as much as possible for the career fair and give back to the school after we graduate whether it’s through WREAA or some other means.”

Overall, the spring semester Real Estate Club Career Fair was a great success. Thank you to all of the employers who came to the Career Fair to discuss opportunities with our students.
