Mastering the technical skills necessary to be successful in commercial real estate is only part of the battle. For those looking to land that next (or first) job in real estate, a well-thought out career plan and an active networking strategy is key.

Much of your value to future employers and investors comes down to how deal seasoned you are and how deep your network is. However, becoming deal seasoned and/or building a network in an area of real estate counter to your long-term career objectives can set you back years.

In this mini-course, you will learn a a framework, used successfully by thousands of professionals including Spencer and Michael personally, to land the right job in the least amount of time.

This framework is an adaptation of Steve Dalton’s 2-Hour Job Search process taught at top business schools around the world. In this course, you will learn to apply Dalton’s techniques to commercial real estate, specifically as it relates to selecting the ideal companies to target and the best individuals to network with.

The course then finishes with a supplemental lecture on writing a real estate resume that will increase your chances of getting an interview.
