Individuals enrolled at SF State or Merritt College who are interested in an exciting career in Commercial Real Estate can take advantage of CREATE’s CRE Fellows Program. This program for undergraduate students is specifically designed to provide students with the skills and education necessary to enter the many dynamic opportunities in the Commercial Real Estate Industry. Whether you are interested in a career in Asset Management, Development, or Real Estate, this program prepares you with real life experience, a chance to work with professionals in the industry, and on-the-job training so you can be workforce ready.
Excellent opportunities exist for students who are eager, customer-focused, and can thrive in a high-rise building industry that supports YOU. Students who intern gain a deeper understanding about commercial real estate (CRE) and help CRE companies increase their productivity. CREATE’s job and internship portal connects students with companies and industry leaders who provide exposure to commercial real estate management, leasing, finance, construction, engineering, and customer service.
We’re not only training a CRE workforce through our partnership with CREATE; we’re highlighting commercial real estate as a career alternative in a highly complex, technology focused Bay Area.
