Property Manager exploring alternate lines of work . What types of jobs should I consider in the future?
Property Manager exploring alternate lines of work . What types of jobs should I consider in the future? I have been a Property Manager for 20 years with no formal education. I am wondering what types of jobs will share similar skills that I should consider? I cannot be an on-site Manager since I am a homeowner now. I've been considering getting a degree but which one would be most desired to further my current expertise? Are there online colleges you'd recommend? I primarily work in an office setting but often go outside the office to inspect homes, show homes and check repairs. I prefer that in/out combo so as to not be stuck in an office/cubicle all day although I may not have that choice priviledge. Christina, Thank you for your prompting question. I really want to be a house wife to my 3 kids, but since that's not possible right now, I am doing what I've always done for my entire working career. If money was not an issue, I wouldn't be working. But to connect a hobby and a job to do what I would love to do, that would be writing. I love to write and read but I've not pursued anything in that direction. I also have so many hobbies that I love that it would be hard to choose. (Scrapbooking, photography, photo editing) but I don't know if I love it so much to work in it. (Never thought about doing those things for a living). Thanks for your input!

Susan, you haven't said what you want to do. Don't you think that's an important consideration? If you could do anything in the world and didn't have to worry about money, what would you do? It may seem impractical, but even if you can't have your dream job, maybe there's a certain industry you would like to be in or a... More
