As the housing market continues to boom, more and more people are looking to find new opportunities and make the switch from their current professions to the real estate industry. Moving from one career to another can be difficult, especially if you don’t already have the appropriate experience and qualifications for the new job. In order for job hunters to make a successful transition to the housing sector, it is necessary to identify transferable skills, such as collaboration, decision-making, interpersonal skills, multi-tasking, sales and relationship building.
It is important to analyze the current role, responsibilities and job market trends in order to determine a unique skillset that can be applied to various positions in this new professional avenue. By understanding the importance of hard and soft skills sets, individuals seeking a career change can have a more successful transition while still being able to offer a unique value to one’s organization.
Having a good set of skills is fundamental in the job search process to land a successful position in the housing industry. However, one should not overlook the value of networking when looking for a job in the sector. Networking goes beyond the simple exchanging of business cards or attending job fairs, but should also include leveraging social channels. Every professional journey should adopt a long-term approach to networking, rather than the popular ‘one-and-done’ marketing strategy.
Overall, making the transition from one career to the housing industry can seem overwhelming. However, with thorough planning and a good understanding of how to apply transferable skills and network, individuals can position themselves for success. By focusing on the combination of hard, soft and transferable skills, job seekers can have a successful career transition while still offering unique value to their organization.
