FRESH (Foundation for Real Estate Students from Holland) is a Dutch foundation, founded in 1999, when several students of the University of Maastricht organized a study trip for real estate students to Chicago. The network is established to give young academic students with an affection for real estate the opportunity to stay in touch with other graduates after their studies. Furthermore, FRESH gives members the opportunity to experience and meet the professionals of some of the world’s leading companies in real estate.
Nowadays, FRESH consists of three parts: FRESH Students, FRESH Professionals and FRESH Career.
FRESH Students is the largest multi-disciplinary network in the Netherlands for real estate students. FRESH Students organizes a wide range of activities for master students interested in the full breadth of real estate and offers them the opportunity to get in touch with both real estate companies and other real estate students. FRESH Students has attracted hundreds of students since its start and has formed a network with active members at nearly every university in The Netherlands. FRESH Students’ activities are organized in cooperation with a variety of sponsors who represent their respective sector in the real estate industry.
FRESH Career is a platform for both students and professionals who aspire to a career in real estate. FRESH Career is a unique online career platform focusing on the real estate industry. FRESH Career offers real estate companies the opportunity to post their job vacancies and/or internships on the career platform. Since the platform focuses on a specific target group, the website is an effective recruitment tool for real estate related companies.
