February 26, 2021

CREW DC Invites you to Hire Local, Transform the Industry

Are you looking for ways to bring talent into our industry?  Do you want to take action on improving opportunities for under-represented people in commercial real estate?  We have your action item right here:

CREW DC invites members to provide internship opportunities for select Washington, DC high school students through the program, DC-CTE (Career & Technical Education).  There is no cost to employers and interns are required to complete a employability skills curriculum that focuses on poise, initiative and tenacity.  Employers can participate in the interview day to select their intern(s) and internships can be tailored to the employer’s availability.  Students typically work 20-25 hours a week over a six-week period, from June 28th to August 6th, 2021.  Paid internships during the summer months may be supplemented by funds from the Marion Barry Summer Youth Employment Program.

The internship program aligns with CREW’s mission, reaching out to secondary students, raising awareness of careers in commercial real estate and develop professional skills. Your participation can give these students a great experiential opportunity. And you take a tangible step toward transforming commercial real estate.
