“CareerDay really got my career going” – Participants on CareerDay at EXPO REAL 2015

CareerDay takes place every year on the third and last day of EXPO REAL. It offers young professionals, students and graduates the chance to get to know companies and submit applications on the spot. It’s also the perfect opportunity for companies to find potential new employees.

“As a graduate, I wanted to use CareerDay at EXPO REAL 2015 to introduce myself to companies. I was impressed with the number of companies represented – some of them even with their team leaders and departmental heads, including my present boss at CBRE – Jan Linsin, Head of Research Germany. We spoke about possibilities at CBRE as well as the activities of a researcher. With success! Shortly after CareerDay, I was invited to an official interview at CBRE. I’ve now been working at CBRE since the beginning of the year for the Berlin Retails Investment Team – the same position I was interested in at EXPO REAL. Visiting CareerDay way definitely worth it and I can highly recommend it to anyone interested in real estate.”

“For Greif & Contzen, as a company, CareerDay is the perfect platform for us to present ourselves as a potential employer to students, graduates and young professionals, and it also gives us the chance to talk to them. As a company participating from the beginning, CareerDay is a hugely important event for us as part of EXPO REAL.”

Lea Seemann, Sales Assistant, LÜHRMANN Berlin GmbH & Co. KG

“As a student of real estate industry, EXPO REAL 2015 was the first real estate fair I visited as a career stepping stone. I was a bit overwhelmed by the size of the stands and on the first two days, I only spoke to companies I already knew. The last day of CareerDay really helped me though. In addition to big names of real estate, I also had the chance to talk to the smaller broker firms. Mr. Radszuweit from LÜHRMANN was particularly pleasant and we spoke about the market and interesting projects.

The application process is really simple: You introduce yourself and find out which positions the company is looking to fill, then, if there’s a match, you hand over your application. Out of nine applications I handed in, eight companies invited me to interviews. LÜHRMANN Berlin was one that invited me and I was offered a job as Sales Assistant with the perspective of becoming a Retail Broker. CareerDay really got my career going and gave me the chance to step straight into professional life after studying.”
