Who doesn’t love a win-win? Sometimes you’ve got great jobs to fill. And sometimes great job candidates who may be new to RPM just need a chance to prove their chops. Here’s a way to do both.
Although I began college at Ball State University’s architecture school, I was asked to meet with a representative from the residential property management (RPM) program during my first semester. The meeting sparked my interest in an RPM career — so much so that I switched my major to RPM almost right away.
I never expected to work in the RPM industry. I moved around a lot in my early career, and RPM luckily fell into my lap. My first job out of college was doing marketing and recreation programming in St. Louis, Mo. From there, I had a brief stint in magazine advertising, and then I changed courses to teach college tennis programs.
I joined the RPM industry in May 2012 after having a wonderful resident experience in my student-housing community at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs.
Military spouses move. And move. And move again. Sometimes you get lucky and stay somewhere for a few years — but usually you don’t.
