Roundtable Weekly
29 Industry Organizations Launch “Careers Building Communities” to Encourage Real Estate Talent Development
May 13, 2019

The Roundtable and 28 other real estate industry organizations – representing more than 10 million jobs – yesterday launched Careers Building Communities, a website highlighting diverse career paths within the real estate sector. The public policy area of the site links to Roundtable resources.

Careers Building Communities highlights diverse career paths within the real estate sector.

  • With changing demographics, technological advances and evolving preferences in how different generations live, work and play, Careers Building Communities seeks to encourage students, educators, career changers and others to explore opportunities in real estate.  
  • Housing Wire reported today that individuals can use the website to learn about real estate industry trends and take an interactive quiz to explore possible career pathways in the industry.
  • Roundtable President and CEO Jeffrey DeBoer said, “This is the kind of positive collaboration that has proven to be a winning formula for policy action in Washington.  And now, thru this new collaboration, we will apply this formula to raise the awareness that everyone, particularly young people, minorities and people of color, have regarding the tremendous career opportunities that real estate offers.”

By attracting diverse talent to the many careers available across the built environment, Careers Building Communities also responds to a consistent theme among industry stakeholders – the increased need for talent.
