Tell us a little about your role at JLL.

I was fortunate enough to land my current role at JLL through connections made at my past internship. I currently work as a part time analyst as I finish up my last semester at Temple University. I am using my current part time experience as an opportunity to learn more about the brokerage side of the company, as this will allow me to smoothly transition into a full-time role post-graduation. Everyone has been super welcoming and helpful since I started, and I am thrilled to be joining the team officially very soon!

How did you get involved with CoreNet?

Through my internship with Vanguard over the summer, I was motivated to get more involved with corporate real estate and any organizations that would help me network and grow. I learned about CoreNet and immediately knew this was something I had to be a part of!

What do you like about CoreNet? 

CoreNet is an amazing way to get your foot in the door of professionals working in corporate real estate and other related fields. Aside from all the remarkable connections I have made so far, I especially appreciate the Young Leader’s events that the organization hosts. It is truly motivating to meet like minded young professionals who share similar experiences and goals to mine. Especially when being fresh in the industry, it always brings me comfort connecting with everyone at these events!

What advice would you give to other student members looking for a job in the industry?

My best advice for students who have recently joined CoreNet and are looking for a job in the industry is to make meaningful connections. I always say, “be a sponge”, and soak up all of the information, knowledge, and wisdom that the industry professionals around you have. Find similarities with the people you meet, because it is likely that you will meet them again, and even work with them! And of course, don’t be afraid to ask questions, on a professional and personal level. When looking for a job in the industry, everyone has been in a similar position of uncertainty, and the members of CoreNet are always helping in guiding and mentoring students.
