Careers in Property Management

Have you considered a career in property management?  Our partners at NAA and BOMA International have resources available, and the AOBA Educational Foundation offers internships and resources on this exciting, high tech industry!

Property Management Careers

Exciting jobs with good compensation and excellent opportunities for career advancement are available in property management - both commercial office buildings and apartment communities (multifamily), as well as in building engineering and maintenance!  AOBA does not maintain a job site; we refer job seekers and employers to the websites of our national affiliates, NAA and BOMA International - see links below.

  Check out the AOBA Educational Foundation,, for info on the 2019 Summer Internship Program. You'll find FAQs about careers in the industry, testimonials from employees and more. 

Careers in Multifamily (Apartment Building) Management

For jobs and internships in the "multifamily" (apartment building) management industry, please visit the National Apartment Association's RPM Careers. This is an AWESOME website that provides detailed info on types of careers available, how to connect personally with a RPM professional, AND a Job Bank. 

Also, for multifamily managers seeking maintenance professionals, nearby Montgomery College is delivering the CAMT course in conjunction with the Maryland Integrated Basic Education and Skills (MI-BEST) program. Designed primarily for limited-English proficient adults, students work to complete and pass the CAMT exam, then become part of a new temporary placement process through Apartment Careers. The goal is to provide 8-weeks of paid "internship" experience, followed by a position with apartment communities in the Maryland/DC area.

Careers in Commercial Building Management

The newly established AOBA Educational Foundation is sponsoring  paid internships in office building operations (engineering/maintenance) for the Summer of 2020 in partnership with member firms.
