When looking for a new job, it’s not always easy to find the perfect role in one’s desired industry. In the property management business in particular, individuals often find themselves in smaller companies with limited support and ability to forge a career path. However, larger real estate asset management organization, such as Veranova, offers a broader range of services beyond just property management, providing job seekers with multiple ways to enter into the company. And, because of this size and scope, individuals can benefit from a range of career paths.
Working for a large, national organization has many positives. In a small organization such as a local property management firm, an employee tends to wear multiple hats. In a large organization, roles are more focused and are better articulated. You are part of a broader team where everyone plays their part. And, when you have outgrown your current responsibilities, or simply need a change, the organization is there to support you.
When an organization has multiple divisions and offices nationwide, employees have the flexibility to move between divisions or locations. This offers employees greater career pathing options because if a position isn’t available at one location, it might be available in another office or in another business division.
Did you know: 46 percent of Millennials left their last job due to lack of career growth in an organization?
Veranova has many different divisions that require different training and skill sets that go far beyond the field of property management. For example, did you know that a career in Veranova could take you into a career in corporate facilities management, project management, real estate, or legal support services?
For example, an entry-level candidate in property management at Veranova will arrange for someone to check on a property to assess its condition and occupancy status. If the property is tenanted, they may handle tenant inquiries and rent collection. They are responsible for assessing home conditions, managing subcontractors hired to do maintenance or repairs, and reporting back to the client.
If law is your passion and you have strong research and communications skills, you might join Veranova’s legal support services team as a legal administrator or verification specialist. This might involve many different levels of the legal administrative process, including drafting legal documents, bringing tenants and landlords to the right agreement, or locating people who have skipped out on their obligations and who don’t want to be found.
In our facilities management division, the work is focused on business to business transactions and day to day management of larger commercial offices and corporate spaces. Facilities management tasks include oversight over a property’s HVAC system, landscaping, elevator services, cleaning and other maintenance tasks. Someone in a facilities management role might progress on to become a project manager, responsible for corporate renovations, new builds or office moves.
Each division offers its own individual roles and career paths, but they all intertwine to complete the bigger picture of real estate asset management and to offer a single solution for our clients that makes sense and works.
Once you’re within the organization, Veranova offers career pathing assistance, educational funding and leadership training, to allow a person to grow, advance or specialize. Everything we do is guided by our STAR philosophy which stands for success, trust, accountability and respect.
Possibilities are larger within larger organizations, especially when the organization is nationwide. And as a 30-year-old national company with multiple divisions and many roles the opportunities that come with working for Veranova are significant and varied.
