In the matter of a few weeks we have gone through an economic swing that has taken us from years of growth to an economy on-hold. Currently things are slowly moving in the right direction and the real estate industry continues to demonstrate its resilience. However, the reopening of commerce is being tempered as our society addresses important issues around equality and social justice.

In “An Essay on Man,” by Alexander Pope the author offers that “Hope springs eternal.” At the CU Real Estate Center we are optimistic about the future. Our optimism is centered around a belief that during this time we can continue to stay connected and prepare for the future as an industry while we navigate these challenges.

To support the real estate community we are continuing to share resources including articles, webinars and opportunities to connect. This includes an opportunity for real estate professionals to provide mentorship and guidance to recent graduates through our Adopt a Business Buff program.

Adopt a Business Buff matches job-seeking seniors, MS and second-year MBA candidates with alumni and community members who can assist with networking and job placement during this uncertain time. Volunteers are matched with students based on common career interests and act as job search catalysts to help graduating students navigate unexpected new hurdles in the job or internship search process that are part of this new reality.

It’s a short-term commitment to make a lasting difference in a graduating student’s life.
