Bang! 2019 is out of the gates. A record number of new real estate jobs were posted in the first 5 business days as employers try to get a leg up on the competition utilizing their brand spanking new budgets. The usual Q1-Q2 rush to secure a job before summer, is being stoked by 24-hour reports of a possible slow down entering 2020. In the rush, don’t forget to renovate your resume. New software skills? Even tried and true data analysis skills should be listed. SelectLeaders recommends a separate sheet for “Representative Experience” listing the deals/projects you were involved in and what your role was. 90% of success, and real estate knowledge, comes from showing up. Our industry has hired slowly and cautiously for the past few years. No worries, we’re running lean and have been preparing for a correction, which is not true of every industry. Take full advantage of this 2019 CRE Hiring High, because every so often everyone must lie low.
