Time to take charge of your career

By October 8, 2015RETS Blog

With unemployment down to 5.5% and with the commercial real estate industry currently posting half that level, now is the time to take charge of your career. RETS recently conducted a candidate survey and data suggests that it’s a candidates market. This is the time to brush up your resume and get that certification or designation added to your skill set and look for a new opportunity.

With top talent employed, the most successful organizations are putting competitive hiring plans in place. This means with the right skill set and background, you are more likely to get the opportunity or next level position you have been looking for.  Offers today include better healthcare coverage and flexible work schedules along with bonus incentives and sometime signing bonuses with many large organizations. The best way to position yourself with new opportunities is to be prepared.  Having your resume updated and references at hand will give you the advantage to getting your next opportunity. If a Real Estate License or other designation is required for your next step, now is the time to get that finalized and be ready for your next offer.

Do your homework on the company you are interviewing with. Make sure you come prepared with questions and answers that might be asked of you. Be prepared to take charge of your career.
