Students and Veterans to Explore Careers in Commercial Real Estate at BOMA International’s Annual Conference

June 16, 2014

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 
(WASHINGTON, D.C. – June 16, 2014) The Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) International will be hosting students and veterans at a special Career Day on Monday, June 23, at the 2014 Every Building Conference & Expo in Orlando, Florida.  The events scheduled for Career Day will provide local college students and veterans transitioning out of military service with valuable insight into potential careers in commercial real estate.
 
Career Day began five years ago as Student Day, when BOMA International invited college students from various real estate programs to attend BOMA’s annual conference to learn about career opportunities in commercial real estate.  Last year, BOMA expanded the scope of the event by partnering with the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA) to also host veterans returning from the wars in the Middle East who were considering careers in the industry.  This unique partnership continues again this year.
 
Participants will be assigned a mentor to accompany them throughout the day, making introductions to industry practitioners, answering questions and providing guidance.  The schedule of events for Career Day includes educational sessions, a networking event and a chance to explore the Every Building Expo.
 
“BOMA International is pleased to continue its commitment to developing the next generation of property professionals with its annual Career Day event,” commented BOMA International Chair Rich Greninger, managing director with Carr Properties.  “We hope this and other industry career initiatives supported by BOMA International will help students and veterans alike discover rewarding career paths in the field of commercial real estate.”
