At some point, most everyone will go on a job hunt. Either you want a position filled or you want to be the one to fill it, and it is no different in the multifamily housing industry. If you’re trying to become a property manager or looking to hire one for the very first time, it can be a very confusing process. It’s not like applying for a data entry position or asking to hire a new waiter. This is a very different machine. Fortunately, you don’t have to go at it alone! Here are four great websites that can help you find the perfect multifamily housing-related job.
Available in well over half of the U.S., AAA Apartment Staffing has a widespread system that allows for an easy, one-time application to multiple jobs. As members of the National Apartment Association (NAA) and more, their site is specialized to the rental industry. The standard job application includes many check boxes, such as agreeing to background checks, previous experience in the field, criminal history and social security. They make it easy to post job listings as well, whether temporary or permanent.
Another staple in the community, Multifamily Insiders hosts ‘community experts’ in property management. Their job boards can be shared to social media with embedded buttons and each posting is sorted by featured jobs, title, date, company, etc. In order to post a job, you need to register with the site. While the jobs don’t appear to have a rating system like Glassdoor, Multifamily Insiders has a user rating itself and has been rated five out of five by sixty-two users. This is one of the best places to start if you’re looking for a specific multifamily position.
If you’re new to the industry, then you may not have heard about the National Apartment Association, but you will. NAA offers everything from online learning to white papers to yes, a jobs board where you can post employment opportunities or look for one that could be near you. You’ll at least have to get used to some people talking about them and the jobs board is a pretty good place to get started. Jobs can be sorted by date posted or location, and resumes can be sorted as well.
An easy to understand platform, Glassdoor is a quick site for newcomers. The rating system of 5.0 stars is very comforting to those nervous about the job industry, divided into separate categories that allow people to see what they are getting into or how strong a company is. If you are posting a job, you can show that you have a capable management system, five out of five stars, as well as a work culture and opportunities.
Being out of work is tough, and admitting you need extra help can be tough, as well. Very few people in the world enjoy sitting up and admitting they might need an extra hand to get through everything. At least knowing where to turn and focus those attentions can make things a little bit easier.
