Raise Your Hand
Do you want to advance in your career? Raise your hand. Raise it to volunteer. Raise it to take on a new assignment. Be open to the opportunities that come your way and let the experience take you to a broader understanding of your business and the people in it.
And, if you want proof this is a winning formula, just ask Mayra Ramirez, CPM®. It’s a formula that got her into property management in the first place, and it continues to feed her education in the wide range of disciplines property management touches.
“Raise your hand,” says the Operations Construction manager for Prologis in Anaheim, California, “even if you don’t think it’s something you ultimately want to do.” She adds that the opportunities for learning that come through a focus on property management will serve you well in the future. For instance, the financial knowledge that’s part and parcel of this discipline “will pay dividends if later in your career you get into brokerage or development or capital markets.”
