Communications & Development Coordinator
Writer position for commercial real estate agents
Team of commercial real estate agents looking for a writer to periodically complete articles relating to the commercial real estate world.
Individual would be provided with a subject to write. They would research, interview individuals, if necessary, and, of course, write the article(s). They would work with a team of commercial real estate agents in any editing changes/revisions requested.
The team would provide some direction on the subject, but the writer will likely have to be independent in their writing.
The design of the article would be done in house by a graphic designer. The team would also have complete control over where this article would be published and sent.
Compensation would likely be on a per article basis and this would have to be negotiated with the team. If the writer has expectations for compensation, please forward them along. If are interested in this opportunity, please email Melissa Brodhagen directly.
UWaterloo Arts Café
The UWaterloo Arts Café (coming soon) is a platform that will connect our alumni and students, allowing us to dramatically increase our ability to support our students as they prepare for life after graduation. Our in-person networking events will remain an important tool with this new platform complementing and enhancing our efforts.
As you know, developing a professional network is a critical success factor in building a career. The Arts Café will allow alumni mentors and students to connect, allowing students to build their network and, perhaps more importantly, providing them access to alumni who can provide valuable career and life skill advice. It is also a terrific opportunity for alumni to be engaged, without even leaving your desk!
That is why we’re excited to introduce you to the UWaterloo Arts Café mentoring and networking platform powered by Ten Thousand Coffees, and in association with RBC.
What will our students get from the program?
- Develop their networking and communications skills through real-world practice
- Build their network of other UWaterloo Arts alumni based on their industry and interests
- Gain a better understanding of what careers are available with their degree
What will our alumni get from the program?
- Help shape the careers of students and young alumni by sharing their career advice and experience
- Develop their networking and mentoring skills through real-world practice
- Build their own networks of other UWaterloo Arts alumni and faculty based on their industry and interests
Each month, students and alumni will be introduced to a student or alumnus or industry partner to ask questions, practice their soft skills and expand their network.
Look for the UWaterloo Arts Café to launch in the Fall of 2019. We will send out an email to all our alumni and students requesting they join the platform.
