I have literally applied to at least 200 ads for a park manager, from Craigslist, Indeed, Monster, Workpop, and every other online site I could find. I have experience, a degree in computers, and am a loyal and honest employee.
The trend also seems to be leaning towards management teams only. For some reason owners and management companies feel that a couple is the best fit so the wife can do the office work and the husband can do the maintenance, security, etc, type work. Do I have to get married to find a position somewhere?
My office skills are unmatched, I’ve always been able to keep a high occupancy rate, I’ve even had to train other managers and my own supervisors. I can even handle some maintenance work. I’m the type of manager that owners dream of, but it doesn’t really show in my resume, so they don’t give me a chance.
The last position I was considered for, they told me I was perfect for the job, was everything they wanted in a manager except that I wasn’t a team, and they only wanted a couple.
Property management is my passion, I love the work, I’m good at it, and it’s what I want to do. But if I can’t find a position after so much searching is it time to consider another career?
