Career fair being held Wednesday for people interested in the apartment industry

The Greater Charlotte Apartment Association is hosting a career fair for college students Wednesday to share information about a future in the apartment industry.

While most of the commercial real estate industry has remained stagnant since the market weakened three years ago, the multifamily industry has soared. Investors are buying apartment complexes and developers are building new projects across Charlotte and the rest of the country. Occupancy rates have been rising and rents are expected to keep growing - good omens for building owners and managers.

At least 10 local apartment management firms are expected to be at the fair.

The industry employs more than 1 million people, according to a trade group. Typical salaries range from $20,000 for a leasing consultant to more than six figures for regional managers, according to the apartment association.

Typical positions include leasing manager, concierge, marketing manager, groundskeeper and maintenance technician. The industry tends to draw jobseekers with experience in the retail, sales, customer service, construction and hospitality industries.

The fair will run from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday at the William R. Davie Park's Conference Center at 4635 Pineville Matthews Road. For more information, go to http://www.greatercaa.org.
