student recruitment Cushman & Wakefield regularly meets with students who are most interested in pursuing a CRE career.

SAN FRANCISCO—Last month, Cushman & Wakefield San Francisco hosted 11 college students from the University of Southern California who made the northbound trek to learn more about the commercial real estate industry. On November 14, a core team of Cushman & Wakefield leaders and experts across multiple service lines and departments along with key members of the firm’s employee resource groups including Future Leaders and Women’s Integrated Network were on hand to speak with the eager students from multiple grade levels. Students also had an opportunity to meet with the speakers as well as other stakeholders in the firm.

The following day, in a separate but related event, Cushman & Wakefield representatives also conducted a series of interviews with nine different candidates from the firm’s Professional Real Estate Program/PREP, a rotational development program for aspiring commercial real estate professionals. The interviewees represented colleges including the University of California Berkeley, Cal Poly, University of Colorado Boulder, University of Hawaii, University of Indiana, University of Southern California and Lafayette College of Pennsylvania.
