Recently Bruce Schonbraun who heads the publicly traded global real estate practice of FTI consulting and the real estate arm of the FTI spoke out about today’s real estate career and his comments were quite interesting in this very challenging time.
Schonbraun McCann Group, is one of the largest real estate consulting and advisory group in the U.S.
Mr. Schonbraun said ” You have to have a passion for something in life, and you have to go for it. So what I tell people is you have to combine three things: what you like to do, what you’re good at, and where the opportunity is. And, if you can put all three of those things together, then you’re going to have an amazing career. If you get two out of three, you’re going to have a very good situation.
But listen: For a young person coming out of grad school, it’s definitely a challenging environment because there’s just not a lot of economic growth that’s happening right at at the moment. There’s not a a lot of job expansion. So it’s definitely challenging. But it doesn’t mean you have to go into a box. It just means you have to work harder…and go for what you want…easy to be discouraged…it takes persistence to hang in there to accomplish and achieve! (credit cpe)
