Candidates need early ties to their employer
Christoph Hartmann in an interview with Immobilienzeitung: With an eye to the past few boom years in the real estate and construction industry, there are at least two reasons for the shortage of people,” says Christoph Hartmann, Managing Partner of Deininger Consulting, who has worked as a personnel consultant placing candidates with companies from the real estate, construction, infrastructure, and private equity sectors for the past 17 years.
For some time now, he has been consistently running into two core issues in looking for suitable candidates for vacant positions in the real estate industry. “First, there just weren’t enough people in the education pipeline in certain areas. Demand for project developers is huge, for example.” He doesn’t think the issue is a lack of students, but rather that some study programs simply take too long for employers to be able to fill all their vacant positions at once.
