Real estate degree is the next step up for graduates in the construction and real estate industry.
With the growth of the real estate market, a large number of new graduates are turning to the industry to get into the industry.
The degree programme is available to any graduate who wants to take up construction work or real estate.
“Real estate is a big industry, and you don’t want to get stuck in one job and work in one place for a year,” says Lorna.
“You want to move around and work from anywhere.
You don’t have to move to a new area.
You can work in a different building.”
Real estate degree in generalis recognised by the Construction Association of Australia (CAA) and is offered as part of a two-year diploma programme.
The CAA also has an accredited degree in real estate and has a strong reputation for providing a solid foundation for graduates.
“The CBA’s real estate program has been very successful,” says CAA secretary-general, David Cawley.
“I think it’s really important to be able to have a degree from the CAA and that’s why we’re seeing graduates come into the CBA.”
But for the majority of graduates, the realisation of their dream job is yet to come.
“If you don’s come into real estate to make money, it doesn’t make sense,” says Jessica, who started her career in construction in 2017.
“It’s a bit hard to break into realtors.
You’re not a professional in the industry and if you can’t break into it, you’re not going to be a professional.”
Jessica says she has not had the opportunity to apply for a job yet.
“There’s still a lot of vacancies in the sector,” she says.
“We’ve got a lot more vacancies in our industry than we’ve ever had before.
We have so many vacancies in that sector that it’s just been hard for us to find work.”
The real estate graduate pathway is an interesting one, and one that many of us have been hoping for.
“This is the one area where we’re really going to see the real economic benefits for young people,” says Dr Andrew Pinto, chief executive of Real Estate One, a national association of graduates in realtivity.
“For people who are graduating this year, there are so many options, so it’s quite exciting that they’re taking on a real opportunity.”
For Jessica, it’s the real opportunity she’s looking forward to.
“Now I’m really looking forward, I’m not going into the real world, but I’ll be going into real life, which is a lot better than working in a job I don’t enjoy,” she said.
“My real life is going to give me a lot to look forward to, I don.
And I’ve got some real estate experience, so I’m going to get that.”
