Video Profile Guidelines:

Here is your opportunity to really shine, bring in your personality and give us a snapshot that represents you. Try and be original, we want you to have fun making the video and think about what will make your video stand out. However, we are not looking for the next Steven Spielberg so grab your phone, video camera, webcam, iPad or anything that can record video and you are ready to go.

The following must be covered in your video content:

-        What attracted you to a career in property and why do you think you will succeed?

-        Discuss an object that you feel best describes you; your experiences and personality (think about what differentiates you).

YouTube Guidelines

You must upload your video to YouTube, this is easy and should take no longer than 4 minutes to register (we know this as we have timed it!). Then cut and paste your YouTube clip link and send to workexperience@cbre.com. If you wish to make you video private and not viewable to others, then please following link for instructions: http://support.google.com/youtube/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=181547.


Please be advised we will not answer technical enquiries in terms of uploading your video all the information in order to do this has been covered otherwise a simple web search should give you the answers you need.


Good Luck and we look forward to receiving your application.
