Real Estate Career Day / 8 May 2024

This year the 30th edition of the Real Estate Career Day (RECD) will be organised. This is ‘the’ biggest real estate event for students in the Netherlands. The yearly event is organized by the practice association BOSS of the department Management in the Built Environment at the Delft University of Technology.

This year, the RECD will be hosted at the Faculty of Architecture of Delft University of Technology. This event will give you the perfect opportunity to get insights in the current world of real estate. During the day students are given the possibility and are stimulated to get in touch with different real estate companies.

Every year, about 200 (real estate) students from different educational institutions across The Netherlands are brought together with more than 30 real estate-related companies. Would you like to make yourself known to reputable real estate companies or do you think you are the talent that should be noticed by every company? Make sure to sign up for the RECD 2024!

To make this day possible, the RECD 2024 is supported by the most prominent real estate-related study associations and educational institutions from the Netherlands.

Exploring Ambitions / Theme 2024

In the near future, numerous changes await us, posing a collective challenge for students, businesses, and society to discover new possibilities and explore opportunities to address future issues such as the housing crisis, nitrogen crisis, and climate crisis. It is essential not only to observe the world around us but also to reflect on ourselves. We need to contemplate how we can be the change we want to see in the world and set goals and ambitions for ourselves and our businesses. This forms the core theme of the Real Estate Career Day 2024: “Exploring Ambitions.”

This theme is relevant for both the students attending the RECD and the companies participating in it. Students are at the beginning of their careers, seeking to understand their contributions to the real estate world, discover where their ambitions lie, and explore how companies offer innovative solutions to various challenges. On the other hand, companies are looking for new young talent and have a specific vision they aim to realize. These topics fall under the concept of “exploring,” encompassing personal and business exploration.

The term “ambitions” refers to the visions and goals of both students and companies. Students aspire to make a meaningful contribution to a company, while companies aim to attract young talent and have a positive impact on society. Within the construction sector, various developments are taking place in sustainability and circularity, with each company having its specific ambitions. Society as a whole has broader goals, particularly focused on addressing climate issues and housing shortages.

The theme “Exploring Ambitions” provides an excellent starting point for the Real Estate Career Day 2024. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, the day aims at the further development and growth of students. This day offers students the opportunity to explore the job market and connect with companies where they may potentially work or intern. The diverse range of companies present on this day provides students with ample opportunities to explore various possibilities.
