I have decided 9not that this is new to anyone) that looking for a job sucks. If you follow me on Facebook you know I had an interview last week with a developer that while pleasant, went nowhere. He was strike number 3 on interviews and strike number whatever on resume submissions. I just had number 4 interview with a small (250 units) property management company. It was a pleasant interview and I met with both the owners who were maybe 2-4 yrs older than me. The 2 things that were big hang ups for them was 1. that they are so small they may not have enough work for me to do and 2. that 6-8 months is a short time and would it be worth teaching me how to do things. Mind you when I say worth it to them this would be a free internship and would cost them nothing but training time.
Now I don't know how many of you readers (I have) have done internships for school, but usually they are a semester long or 3.5 months long. Then after that you have to reapply or move on to another. So 6-8 months is actually a good long time for a free internship to happen. I am pretty sure it would be a good thing for me to get a position with them because they are about where I want to be in 3-4 yrs. My own family sized property management company with 6-7 employees and around 25-50% of the properties being managed owned by me/or another of my family companies. So getting in with them would help me see and learn a lot of what to and not to do. So wish me luck and wish me extra strong luck that maybe they spontaneously decide to pay me for my work, because that would be great!
