Since 2007, CREW Network through UCREW® has been introducing college students to diverse opportunities in commercial real estate. CREW Detroit, a chapter of CREW Network, hosts interactive sessions in the fall and/or spring, and utilizes members as role models to teach students networking fundamentals, offer powerful career resources and provide relationship-building opportunities in career development.
What is UCREW?
UCREW is a dynamic forum where women attending local universities are invited to connect with commercial real estate professionals to discover careers, uncover opportunities and forge a network that takes their career to the next level. UCREW helps university students navigate career decision-making with more confidence. Students pursuing undergraduate and graduate degrees in construction management, architecture, civil engineering and business fields such as accounting, finance, management and marketing all benefit from this program.
With a focus on advancing the success of women in the CRE industry, CREW members will speak candidly at the event about:
- CORE Industry Careers
- The CRE industry – past, present and future
- Women in CREW – why we are in it to win it
- Career experiences, challenges and success stories
- Why Failure is not an option (otherwise we wouldn’t be here)
- Next Generation – why CREW continues to grow, evolve and remain relevant
CREW members are diverse and dynamic. Having industry tenure while being tech-savvy, they’re polished yet cutting-edge. CREW member companies are among the industry’s largest and leading employers. They invest in CREW through their membership and sponsorship and by helping to provide programs such as UCREW.
