WASHINGTON, June 25—Associated Builders and Contractors has teamed up with more than two dozen real estate industry trade associations to highlight the rich variety of career paths in the real estate sector. The group collaborated on a new website, CareersBuildingCommunities.org, which allows visitors to navigate through the scores of career paths across all sectors of real estate as the industry confronts the need to fill millions of jobs in the coming decades.
For the first time, students in high school, college, trade school or community college can explore different positions, property types and career paths via a single website. The site also includes a quiz to help guide students across the various sectors and careers within real estate.
