UCREW's Job Shadowing Event


UCREW's Annual Half-Day Shadowing Event Wednesday, October 15, 2014

CREW, Commercial Real Estate Women, is looking for students from a wide range of majors to participate in their half-day job shadowing program.  Any student evaluating careers in and around commercial real estate, which could include engineering, finance, business, pre-law, accounting, marketing, construction, banking, and many more would all benefit from participating. 

CREW Dallas is a non-profit organization of commercial real estate professionals affiliated nationally through membership in CREW Network, providing opportunities for networking, education, leadership development and civic/philanthropic involvement. Founded in 1989, CREW Network is the industry’s premier business networking organization dedicated to advancing the achievements of women in commercial real estate.

UCREW is the university outreach committee within CREW Dallas that works to educate both undergraduate and graduate-level students about opportunities in the commercial real estate industry.

Students will spend the morning with a CREW member learning about the industry from the inside and then will join their host and the rest of the membership of CREW Dallas as a guest at the Park City Club in Dallas for lunch.

This is a wonderful opportunity for students to network and get to know seasoned professionals in the commercial real estate industry.

Students interested in participating can request a registration form from Sherri Williams in Career Services and email the completed form to khopkins@crew-dallas.org  by Wednesday, September 9th, 2014.
