VAR is proud to announce its partnership with the Virginia Tech Program in Real Estate and the launch of a new student internship program for Virginia Tech students and Virginia REALTOR® brokerages. We are opening up the annual enrollment process now and invite brokers to sign up for this new and exciting opportunity to affect the future of the Virginia real estate industry.
The program is designed to give students seeking a degree in real estate an opportunity to obtain first-hand, practical knowledge of the real estate industry through direct exposure to the operations of brokerages throughout the state. Through this program, students will learn the challenges and the rewards of a career in real estate.
Brokers benefit as well:
- Brokers gain statewide exposure as a participating brokerage at Virginia Tech University and through VAR recognition channels
- Brokers can help elevate professionalism within the industry from the start of a real estate professional’s career
- The program, and brokers’ participation in it, enhances REALTOR® community involvement and elevates the prestige of individual brokers within their community
- Internships provide recruitment opportunities
- Brokers can help real estate professionals develop affinity with the real estate industry, the profession, and the REALTOR® brand early in their career
Enrollment will be open from today, Friday, November 15, 2013 until Wednesday, January 8, 2014.
