Take a left turn and consider commercial real estate.
You’re smart. You’re savvy. You have what it takes to succeed.
But you’re stuck in a job instead of a career.
Perhaps your company sets a limit on how much money you can make. (You know you’re eligible for more but corporate policies dictate otherwise.) Or your partners, or even your manager, won’t let you bring ideas and solutions to senior leaders or the C-suite because ‘that’s just the way it is’ or there’s just too much bureaucracy or they think you don’t have enough experience or haven’t been there long enough. Or maybe there is a bunch of other reasons that don’t make sense.
All you know is you want to build an exciting and successful career. Now, you just need to find the right company that will let you do just that.
When you hear the term “commercial real estate”, you might automatically think of leases, rents and buying and selling buildings, plazas and parking lots. However, the truth is the industry has evolved, focusing on addressing clients’ business challenges – whether it’s raising employee engagement, increasing productivity or expanding into new markets – with the right property solutions.
Take a left turn and consider a fulfilling role in commercial real estate. When you work with an industry leader like Colliers, you’ll be able to leverage our brand and reputation while accessing the right support and resources – including marketing, systems and development – to help you succeed in this fast-growing, fast-paced field.
