NEW YORK CITY—Whether you’re comparing results a year ago or two years earlier, job opportunities in commercial real estate experienced growth well into the double-digit range during the third quarter. It was the industry’s best summer ever for job postings, exceeding previous highs set in 2007, according to the Cornell/SelectLeaders Job Barometer, a joint research effort between Cornell University‘s Baker Program in Real Estate and the SelectLeaders Real Estate Job Network.’s Career Center is powered by the SelectLeaders Real Estate Job Network.

Q3 postings rose 23.3% year over year and 43.5% from the same period in 2012. July also saw the third-highest single month total so far this year, behind only the two previous months.  “This is no small feat, considering that the number of jobs posted in June was the highest it has been since the Job Barometer began tracking these numbers in 2006,” says Susan Phillips, CEO of SelectLeaders.
