Tips to Finding Property Management Jobs

Here are some quick tips to find your next Property Management job online. And all you have to do is open your Inbox.


* Use search engines like Google to find both job boards, and employers. There are over 40,000 Niche job boards on the Internet. These sites are locally focused, or focused on specific types of Property Management, from Apartments, to Residential or Commercial Real Estate management. These sites also have a wealth of information, including salary information, local employers, and local industry trends, etc.

* Create Automated Job Agents. They are easy to setup, they email you daily, and they can find new jobs for you, while you are sleeping!

* Upload your Resume to the major job board resume databases... but don't expectanyone to call you. This is almost a formality. Most big employers subscribe to the resume databases, but they don't use them very effectively. Most smaller and midsize companies don't use resume databases at all.

* Visit your local Professional Association web site. There are thousands of professional associations, including National and Local Chapters. Many of them have job boards. Those job boards are not often utilized, but the jobs are VERY specific, a lot of times.

* Search for local Real Estate Companies, in many cases, Real Estate firms have sister companies or separate Property Management divisions, within their companies.

There are lots of job boards on the Internet. Most are national sites, with tons of jobs.

Finding the Right job board for you and your career is easy to do.

For example, say you are looking for a property management job in Los Angeles.

By searching Google for the term "Los Angeles Property Management Jobs", you will come up with a list of job boards, for the most part.

Many of those sites will be national sites, but some of them, might be targeted directly to job seekers and employers in Los Angeles.

When you find a site, like, Review the number of local employers they have listed. More is not always better. What you are looking for is specific job titles that match what you are looking for.

Most of the major job search engines have Real Estate and Property Management Job listings, but a lot of the time, there isn't much local information about local employers, etc. A good job board will give you access to a wide variety of local jobs, as well as information about the employers posting those jobs.

Using a Job Agent, on these sites can help by just emailing the local jobs to you on a daily basis.

Also, when applying for jobs, make sure you are actually qualified for the position. There is nothing worse then applying to hundreds of sites, and getting limited responses.
