Eisenberg Foundation’s Career Day Provides Inside Access to CRE Projects
The Harold E. Eisenberg Foundation will host its 13th Annual Career Day Nov. 7-8. The event is designed to bolster young careers, allowing students the unique opportunity to network with industry leaders, while gaining valuable exposure to Chicago real estate.
Students will be granted inside access to two exclusive real estate development projects. The first is Gallagher Way, adjacent to Wrigley Field and developed the Ricketts family’s real estate arm. The second is the new McDonald’s headquarters in the Fulton Market District.
“This year, students will be able to see the inner workings of both projects, hear the story behind the development, the business plans, how the sites were chosen, what it took to get necessary approvals and more,” said Christian Williams, the foundation’s career day chair and SVP with CBRE. “It’s so much more than can be taught in a classroom, and we’re passionate about providing that experience.”
