This year’s prime leasing season has spurred strong demand for multifamily professionals. In May’s edition of NAAEI’s Apartment Jobs Snapshot, the number of available positions in the apartment industry amounted to more than 14,600 job openings. The highest concentration of job postings was in Kansas City, Mo.; Portland, Ore.; Raleigh, N.C.; Houston and Dallas.
This month’s spotlight highlights maintenance managers and supervisors. The demand for these positions was more than three times the U.S average in Seattle. The top specialized skills employers are looking for included HVAC, plumbing, repair, property management and carpentry skills.
