Career Counseling and Opportunities
"The Burnham-Moores Center for Real Estate has played a pivotal role in my career growth. The mentorship program and career guidance provided through the BMC, coupled with the extraordinary networking opportunities, have helped at every step of my career path over the past 12 years since I graduated."
The Burnham-Moores Center's faculty and staff are available to help students with career planning initiatives. Our team of professionals help students by: reviewing career options and opportunities within the real estate industry; reviewing professional documents (resumes and cover letters); participating in mock interviews; offering suggestions on job search strategies; and connecting students with industry leaders. These leaders serve as mentors and experts in their area of real estate and help guide students as they determine their career interests. The Burnham-Moores Center offers an exceptional mentorship program to our graduate and undergraduate students. Our annual Real Estate Career Expo, held in February, is a speed-networking format, which introduces job candidates to employers.
Employers frequently seek out our real estate students and alumni for employment and internship opportunities because of USD's reputation for having knowledgeable, hard-working and highly ethical students. The Burnham-Moores Center's staff and faculty helps real estate students succeed by preparing them for internships and full-time job opportunities by reviewing resumes, conducting mock interviews, discussing real estate career options and offering important interview tips prior to help with the job application process.
Internships and Full-Time Employment:
Internships provide students with authentic work experience and help students assess their interest in a variety of real estate related fields. Internships frequently lead to full-time job opportunities after graduation and also provide the opportunity for building valuable professional relationships and references. Student internships during the school year should be flexible and generally between 10 to 20 hours per week. Compensation is negotiable and should be commensurate within the stated job description.
Employers seeking to hire USD students for an internship or on a full-time basis can post career opportunities on the USD job database, TorreroLink. Employers may also contact Jackie Greulich, student and career services manager at (619) 260-7619 or John Ferber, director of commercial real estate, at (619) 260-7513 at the Burnham-Moores Center for Real Estate.
