About this event

NAIOP Edmonton is proud to introduce round three of the annual Developing Leader/University of Alberta Mentorship Program, providing University of Alberta students with a valuable opportunity for personal and professional growth. 

Through focused, one-on-one networking sessions with a NAIOP Developing Leader (commercial real estate professionals under 35), students will forge valuable new industry connections and learn about the various career paths available to them in the commercial real estate industry.  

How it works:  

• Each of the Mentors listed below have committed to meet with two unique University of Alberta students (Mentees) during the Winter semester for up to two meetings each. Mentors will be available in May in the case that meetings conflict with final exams.

• Students should have completed basic business courses and have a strong interest in learning more about working in the broader Commercial Real Estate industry.

• A maximum of fourteen University students (2 per Mentor) will be granted access to the program as a Mentee for the Winter Semester (Jan – Apr).  Please only sign up once.

• Students can sign up for this program on a First-come, First-served basis.  Registration will go live on Feb 11th at 10:00AM via an Eventbrite link that will be provided to students prior to.

• Upon acceptance into the program, each Mentee will be able to select one Mentor, subject to availability. Mentees must then schedule a date within four weeks to have an initial meeting with their chosen Mentor.

• Come prepared with questions and use this opportunity to forge new relationships in the industry as well as learn about various career paths that are available within commercial real estate.  2021 Participating Mentors:
