Sep 11, 2018 12:10 PM ET

CBRE announced that the company is among America’s Best Employers for New Graduates, according to a list published by Forbes. The company ranked #24 out of the top 250 employers and is the only commercial real estate company to make the list.

The Forbes ranking is the result of employee surveys that asked participants to share their opinions about their employers on criteria such as atmosphere, development, image, working conditions, salary and diversity, as well as how likely they would be to recommend their employer. Participants were also given the opportunity to nominate other employers in industries outside their own.

“CBRE makes it a priority to seek out top young talent, and we are honored to be recognized as an inclusive company where young professionals can find opportunities to learn, grow and succeed,” said Jennifer Ashley, Global Director of Human Resources at CBRE.

CBRE offers several internships, scholars awards and summer programs to help college and recent graduates build a career path to success. In addition to opportunities in local markets, CBRE also has several national programs available such as the GWS MBA Summer Associate Program, National Sales Internship, Real Estate Accounting Services Internship, Digital & Technology internships and more. Visit the Students and Recent Graduates page at to learn more about these and other opportunities for young professionals.

In addition, CBRE’s Rising Professionals Organization (RPO) is an employee network group dedicated to helping professionals form business relationships, build leadership skills and participate in community and philanthropy events. Comprised of members who desire to reach their highest potential and become leaders, the network group works to contribute a fresh perspective to challenge and lead the industry. In collaboration with analytics firm Statista, Forbes selected the Best Employers for New Graduates based on an independent survey from a sample of more than 10,000 young professionals working for companies employing at least 1,000 people in the U.S. The surveys were anonymous, allowing the process to reduce subjectivity and bias.
