What is National Residential Property Management (RPM) Careers Month?

RPM Careers Month 

In 2010, the NAA Education Institute announced the first-ever National RPM Careers Month. National RPM Careers Month was created to bring awareness and promote the attractive and recession-resistant careers in the apartment industry.

RPM Careers Month also encourages hiring personnel, whether they are onsite managers or corporate human resources managers, to evaluate this talent more effectively, exploring core competencies and not just looking for previous apartment industry experience.


Who can participate in National RPM Careers Month?

Anyone can participate in National RPM Careers Month. Apartment community staff, apartment management companies, hiring personnel and NAA affiliates are all encouraged to participate in creating awareness about careers in the apartment industry.


RPM Careers Month is Moving to April 2016
New month. New activities. New ways to win prizes!

Throughout April, join in the fun to promote RPM Careers Month and raise awareness of our dynamic industry!
