Looking for a new job?
Here’s the recipe for getting both in one neat little package.
Yes you can have your cake and eat it too.
Discover the world of maintenance. You can find a job that will give you a salary and a free apartment. There are other maintenance jobs where you will be given a free-standing full size home as part of your pay.
There are still other positions that will afford you the opportunity of working full time at your regular job, and part time in maintaining an apartment building, where you will live free and get a small salary.
If this idea sounds good to you, read on. There are many thousands of apartment buildings and complexes that want on site maintenance people and are willing to pay for it.
This is one field that has not been taken over by big business and still offers big rewards for the average Joe or plain old Jane.
The Top 5 Questions.
1. What will I have to do?
You will be charged with keeping the units in the best possible shape. Your duties could include painting, unclogging toilets, unsticking stuck Garbage disposers. Vacuuming and cleaning common ways, and a million other jobs large and small.
2. What if I don’t know how to unclog a toilet?
Most small repairs can easily be learned. If you don’t have a friend or family member to advise you, use the internet. From Hubpages and How To sites there are unlimited online resources to get you through any task.
3. What about big jobs like roof repairs, or heating system repairs?
You will not be expected or even allowed to do any jobs that require a license or great quantities of expertise. You will be expected to communicate the issues to management and you will then be directed to bring in contractors or to arrange some other solution.
If you are a licensed electrician, plumber or other type of tradesperson, you will certainly be able to easily get a maintenance job, and you may get bonus pay for advanced repairs and upgrades.
4. How can I get one of these jobs?
Begin with the help wanted section of your local newspaper. It’s still the best source of information for your community. Go through the classified carefully. Look not only for help wanted, but also at Apartment Buildings for Sale. The owners of buildings for sale may be doing some pre transaction upgrades and might need an extra hand.
5. Can I get this job without experience?
Yes you can. Start off with a smaller building, one that has a dozen units or less. They often cannot afford a full time person, but will give a free apartment in exchange for services. Think of it. You get your apartment free every month. No heating bills. No utility bills. How much will that save you?
If you are a returning vet or a non veteran soldier, almost everyone will give you a shot. Just get out there on knock on some doors. If they don’t have work at one building, ask them if they know anyone that needs help. If you are persistent, you will quickly land a maintenance job.
Do it full time. Do it part time. Do it while you are in college or university. Make a career of it. Graduate into the highly paid field of property management. The opportunities abound and they are there for you.
Get out, get looking, and get back to me when you land your first job.
