Why multifamily housing needs you

If you want to make a positive impact while working in an exciting industry with a bright future, multifamily housing is for you. This thriving $3.4 trillion industry provides rental housing in properties with five or more apartments to 40 million people across the nation — a number that’s expected to climb.

Choose from many exciting career paths at a variety of companies. Find opportunities in finance, investment, development and construction, marketing, operations, and more. You can advance financially, professionally, and personally and help us shape the future of housing.

A diverse market needs diverse leaders

Diverse perspectives are critical to driving innovation and organizational success. However, minority groups are currently underrepresented in the multifamily housing industry. We need to change that. That’s why, in addition to providing opportunities for career growth, Fannie Mae Multifamily, Future Housing Leaders , and the Delegated Underwriting and Servicing (DUS®) Lenders are committed to forging a more diverse and inclusive housing workforce that better reflects the communities we serve. In this diverse workforce we’re building, your unique talents are vital.
