I just need tips on what I can do to help out my boss which is the Property Manager. Make her job easier what might I take over and help her without asking her. I would really like to impress her a little more. Show her that Im serious about my job status. I answer phones, take notes, make copys, type labels, filing, orgainze, and already show aparments. Is there anything you might think of that is creative and intavative, also helpful that might help her out.
I just graduated with a bachelors degree from the University of Texas. My major was Corporate Communication. Currently, I am working as an assistant property manager. However, I am interested in the following jobs: Property Manager, Paralegal, Human Resources, Marketing, Flight Attendant, and Business Consulting. How can I make up my mind when I have so many interests?
I have a Bachelors with a double major in Political Science and Urban Studies and a Master in Urban Planning with an emphasis on community development (social and economic aspects of urban planning). I got the masters in 1997. I have had no more formal university education in 10 years and I am in my mid-30s. I have been working in the affordable housing industry as a staff assistant, property manager and administrator.
I had always planned to pursue my education further and family and friends thought the same, but I got to eat and pay bills. I've always had a thirst for knowledge and research and finding out things for either the sake or learning or to apply it to something. I got my masters straight after getting my bachelors, so I had been in school 6 straight years after high school, so some associates joked about me not been in the real world. Now, after 10 years in the real world, I now have the ironic opposite problem of trying to find the best way to get back into "academic" shape. Heck, I've only been to the public library three times since getting my masters. I do have lots of practical continued education related to my job or keeping up with standard office software and do have a lot of books from my own library that I read, however.
These are some options I'm exploring:
(1) Take some classes at local state university and/or through distance education colleges to get study habits back and strenthen transcript (it is possible, though not necessarily an absolute goal that I could get second bachelors from this route from a college like Excelsior), then pursue PhD
(2) Pursue the MBA, then pursue PhD
(3) Pursue Masters Degree in another area such as economics or geography that complements my previous education on the political science and urban studies side, then pursue PhD
Back 10 years ago when I was still in grad school, the professor who was my advisor had suggested to me that I go to an MBA program. I had not thought about going to get an MBA before, but he saw that I had loaded up my urban planning coursework with electives in social statistics and economics (he knew I could have taken a lot easier courses). He wanted me to consider going to a place like Wharton. He felt that the combination of a masters in urban planning and an MBA would be a dynamic combination for someone interested in community development. I considered that, but like I said, I need to eat and since I came from very modest means (poor), I needed to work. I am was already in debt trouble, so I wasn't interested in taking on more student loans and will not ever take out any more student loans (and I intend to self-finance any future education and/or pursue any available grants).
Now that I've been out for so long, not only am I academically rusty but I've also lost contacts with potential recommenders (a few of whom have since passed including my graduate advisor). So as I see it, at the minimum I need to take a few college courses just to make sure I still got the touch, as well as for the regular business of getting recommenders and strengthening my transcript.
I anticipate that the pursuit of the PhD in my situation will be a 8-12 year project. I'm now in my mid-thirties, so I would hope to have the PhD completed by the time I'm in my early to mid-forties. I expect to start my comeback with a course this Fall. For the next year or so, I expect to stay enrolled continuously either in a traditional course or distance education course.
I stopped teaching to go with my husband for four years and live in MX as an expat. Now I've moved back to the States to San Diego, and I would like to try a new profession without any or much reeducation. I was a very successful teacher in all areas. I'd like to work part time. I've considered something like an apartment complex assistant property manager or even cleaning apartments so that I can work for myself. I know I have unique qualifications that can transfer to many other areas. I have a BS in Education with a minor in English literature and natural science. Do you have any suggestions or experiences?

Thing is, most job ads online ask for a few years experience before they'll consider you and it's feels like I'm stuck in a Catch-22.

I work for an apartment complex as an assistant manager/leasing consultant. We hired a new leasing agent about two months ago.
Last week a lady called the office and told me she already spoke with Samantha but she felt that she didn't know what she was doing and that sounded unsure about the information she was giving her on the phone.
I told her that I would be more than happy to help her find her new home... went over the requirements and full information. Scheduled an appointment and told her Samantha will be happy to give her a tour. She told me that she didn't want to deal with her so I scheduled an appointment with her.
When she came in, I gave her a tour and she applied right then and there. After the lady left, Samantha came over to my desk with an attitude and told me that the lady was her applicant and that she spoke to her about a month ago.
My mistake was not telling her the truth about the lady not wanting to deal with her. I didn't want to make her feel bad. I also didn't want her to confront the lady and ask her what she did wrong and why she didn't like her because that's the type of person she is.
I told her that since I gave her the information on the phone, tour and applied that same day she became my applicant. Samantha was very upset and told me she didn't understand because she gave showed her the model already and an application to bring back. which she never did (the lady never mentioned this to me).
Today Samantha spoke to the property manager and told her I was screwing her and that she worked hard for her money(by the way the commission for every lease is only $25).
Her comments made me upset because I was the one giving her the right information on the phone. gave her a tour. showed her 3 different units until we found the right apt for her.
I plan on talking to her tomorrow because she had a very nasty attitude all day on Monday giving me dirty looks. I want to apologize for not telling her what the lady said because that was my mistake.
However I don't think it's ok for me to lease apartments for her every time someone don't like her and for her to get rewarded for my work. She can have the commission i don't mind... but i don't want her to not to do her job and for this to continue.
My manager is the nicest person so she told me to just settle things down with her and that it was up to me on what to do. I told her i was going to talk to her tomorrow. I don't want to be rude however I don't think is fair and don't know how to approach her i want to be firm without being mean any advise will be helpful.
