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.
The AOBA Educational Foundation (AEF) works with AOBA members and education and training providers across the District, Maryland, and Virginia to develop talented building engineering and maintenance professionals. In addition to highlighting information on these rewarding careers, AEF maintains an online career center to connect job seekers and employers with free job postings for AOBA members and all services free for job seekers.

Check out the AOBA Educational Foundation, where you will find FAQs about these professions, testimonials from engineering, maintenance, and property management professionals, 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. Find information on available positions, how to connect personally with an RPM professional, and a job bank.
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.
