After an unsettling performance in recent years, America's housing market appears to be showing positive signs of growth and consumer activity. Many major news outlets in recent weeks have covered this recent housing recovery, citing increased home sales and lower mortgage rates in major cities. This is good news for America's economy, but also good news for the housing job market. While jobs in housing will exist regardless of our economic climate, a strong housing economy fuels the growth of housing development in cities, which could make a fun and interesting career in the private sector.
Towards the end of the year we will get the opportunity to see how the jobs market has fared for our housing alumni at the annual career panel. The career panel of one of the various events thrown by our HOUS (Housing Organization for University Students) student group here on campus. I will be stepping up as President of the group this year and we are just beginning to get things going now that October has arrived. I'm excited to get us all together again and looking forward to some fun events this year!
