The Real Estate Student Association (RESA) is proud to offer RESA members exclusive access to our Mentorship program! RESA mentorship has partnered with ULI, NAIOP, and individual real estate organizations in previous years.
The goal of the Mentorship Program is to provide University of Calgary students with the opportunity to learn more about the real estate industry and its related career paths from an industry professional. Mentoring is a special partnership between two people based on a commitment to the mentoring process, common goals and expectations, focus, mutual trust and respect. The vetting process to select mentees will be as follows:
The mentorship program will be restricted to members of RESA. If an individual wish to become a mentee, they must be enrolled as a student at the University of Calgary and be a paid RESA member. First preference will be given to third-year and above students with a specialization in Real Estate Studies.
Each member must submit an official application in order to be considered for the mentorship program.
All applications will undergo a review by the President and VP of Mentorship. The candidates will be finalized based on their interest in the real estate industry and commitment to the mentorship program. All candidates will be interviewed either in person or via telephone by VP Mentorship. In order to eliminate any bias (perceived or real), the final list of chosen mentees must be approved by the Director of the Westman Centre for Real Estate Studies.
This year RESA has partnered with the ULI and NAIOP to provide real estate industry professionals as our mentors! Here is a description of each company:
