I used to work as a recruiter in my first post college job and would hire 100 to 200 people for these large government contract jobs around the states ( think working on airplanes ).

I’ve since been out of recruiting but my good friend is in and is aware of where some of these 5 to 10 year contracts where they need a few thousand people are all around the country.

I’m curious if anyone has had a strategy where they identify these contract hubs, and then invest in places for contractors ( who often get monthly or daily per diem for rent) and if you’ve found it to be a good strategy?

We’ve identified 2 major upcoming hubs where he will be hiring 100 people for that will need housing.
