CREW East Bay Announces Career Day for High School Students
Driven by a mission to elevate women in the commercial real estate field, CREW East Bay has an exciting event planned for female high school students. In collaboration with the City of Oakland, students from across the East Bay are invited to spend Saturday, April 29 at City Hall and learn about the industry.
“We want to educate young women about career opportunities in commercial real estate,” said Malinder Bhan, CREW East Bay President and Vice President, JPMorgan Chase. “Careers in our field range from engineering, development, and appraisal to law, banking, and property management."
Students who participate in CREW Careers will meet members in variety of careers, learn about their path to success, enjoy complimentary lunch, break out into teams to create a development proposal for 1911 Telegraph Avenue, and present it to a “mock” city council.
“We want to help students find a path after high school and college. Commercial real estate can be a very lucrative field, but it’s not necessarily a career path on the radar of female high students, unless they have the right exposure,” said Bhan.
DETAILS: April 29, 9:30am-3:30pm, Oakland City Hall, 1 Frank Ogawa Plaza, Oakland, CA. First come, first serve, space limited. Students will receive a certificate of attendance and a $10 Visa card for transportation. Register here.
