Welcome to the Real Estate, Accounting, & Insurance Community!
The following sampling of tools and resources should be combined with your own research. We suggest you use targeted keyword searches to find representative employers and opportunities, explore professional associations, join LinkedIn groups, and browse additional job board postings. Remember to also search LinkedIn and MyPenn (formerly QuakerNet) to connect with Penn alumni in fields related to your interests. Additionally, the sample jobs and employers at the bottom of this page are only a small selection of what’s posted in Handshake – log in to see much more! We also suggest using the Career Exploration section of our website for more information or researching by major.
Although real estate, accounting and insurance are disparate industries, all offer a variety of job opportunities ranging from highly quantitative roles like real estate finance or actuarial work to careers that depend more heavily on interpersonal and communication skills such as sales and marketing. Check out our Vault Guides to learn more about options in these specific industries or try CareerExplorer, an interactive career test, to see your compatibility and learn more about over 800 careers.
In addition to conducting online research, it is important to talk to people actually working in the roles you are considering to learn more about what the work is actually like. Resources such as MyPenn (formerly QuakerNet) and LinkedIN can help you find Penn alumni working in fields of interest. We also recommend connecting with campus organizations such as the Zell Lurie Real Estate Center and relevant Penn student groups or professional associations to learn more and grow your network.
