Advice needed for Hiring help

1 Reply

Hi all, We are in the Long Beach, CA area and beginning to get busy with rentals, tenants, renovations, selling, acquisitions, etc.

We are looking for help.

Anyone already have a list of questions or duties for a new hire or intern so that we don’t have to re-invent the wheel? Any advice on where how to look?

Mostly, we are looking for someone who is organized and can do a lot of Small day to day things—like talk with tenants and contractors, make spreadsheets. Answering phone calls and emails, etc.

What experience should we be looking for? Where should we look? Thank you for any advice or tips! 

I don't have a list off-hand and while it may be helpful, I'd always seek someone that is a unique fit for your business, messaging and approach to daily ops (how to interact with tenants, billing and the like). That said, you may have to strike that balance between rapid multi-tasker and people skills. You may not find that combo in an intern. Good news is that you can find a go-getter that you can help shape for the long-run if they're willing to put in time in the trenches for a year or three. Sorry, don't have the list, but just something to consider. Not sure I'd put an intern in charge or behind the wheel of core operations. A big-enough fire and they may not be as professionally invested in putting it out (if they're just testing the waters of this career path). =\
