I'm a recent Finance and Economics graduate and currently working as a financial analyst. I'm looking for an opportunity to work as an assistant to property manager as I don't have the experience to be a property manager myself. I would love to get into the field, but it is been kind of hard, any advice. I'm in the Miami/ Fort Lauderdale area.
Can I ask why you want to switch careers to property management? As a Financial Analyst your salary potential is likely much more than that of a property manager. My advice would be to maximize your W-2 potential and use that to invest. Having a high W-2 income is a great asset as it allows you to get traditional financing.
Perhaps you are looking for a weekend job/internship to help you learn more about real estate? That's a great idea. I would recommend looking for local Real Estate Investor meetups and network there. Maybe you can find a property manager or investor to network with and possibly shadow.
Come to our monthly women’s group August 28th listed on events page ft Lauderdale to network.
Also curious about why you want to transfer from a financial analyst to an assistant property manager. I think an assistant for property manager is to do some paper and accountant work, but may get a sense of property management.
