Finding a job?

3 Replies

Hello BP!

I graduated college this week with business management and a math minor. I currently am working as the inventory manager for a local company but am looking for a job related to real estate.

What would you say is a good job (besides being an agent) that would allow me to learn about real estate while I begin investing?

and to my Pensacola people, if you know of any jobs locally that pertain in ANY way to real estate please let me know!

thank you for any input

@Caleb Mclamb  Congratulations on your graduation! 

In terms of a real estate job beside being an agent, I would say "bird dogging" is a strong option. I haven't done it myself (I'm going the RE agent route), but I've heard for some of the other members that it's a solid way to learn the numbers for your market while also making connections. Basically you find a great deal for an investor and charge a fee. Unlike wholesaling, you do NOT put it under contract. 

If you haven't already heard this podcast episode, the first part explains how @Chad Carson  got started with bird dogging. I found it really helpful. Maybe you will, too. 

Good luck and let us know in which direction you go!
