NEW YORK CITY-Job postings in commercial real estate were up 5.2% from the previous quarter as Q3 drew to a close, and gained 16.2% year over year, according to the Cornell/SelectLeaders Job Barometer report issued Monday. SelectLeaders notes that the industry has seen positive employment growth in nine of the past eleven quarters, with development-related firms doubling last year’s share to account for nearly 18% of those posting in the most recent quarter.

“As development takes center stage, it is bringing with it a wider range of opportunities,” says Susan Phillips, CEO of SelectLeaders. “Managing current assets led the recovery, but now as firms acquire and create new assets, we see opportunities in more categories and functions and sectors within our industry.” Overall, development roles, to include development, project and construction management, have more than doubled over the past year and comprised nearly 10% of all postings in Q3 2013, compared to 4% in Q1 2012.
