Anyone working as a real estate agent on the side in the city? I’m curious to know if it would be possible for me to get started with it and if I can work part time for an approved firm and do my 75hour coursework with them

The licensing process isn’t super hard, but I wouldn’t recommend it as a side hustle. I used to work in RE marketing so can say from an inside perspective that your success is largely based on your existing network. Unless you already know lots of wealthy folks looking to buy or sell, it’s gonna be an uphill battle for you for a few years—you’ll waste a lot of time chasing buyers while working other agents’ open houses for free, or doing small-potatoes rental work. You only get paid after a sale happens, and most agency splits for newer agents are VERY steep, meaning you’ll only take home half of your profits (and that’s before taxes). AND you’ll have to be associated with some sort of agency/broker for at least a few years, bc entry-level RE salespeople are not legally allowed work independently. I know the RE market seems hot, but the market is also oversaturated with brokers, so competition is high.

Hi Fishes,

My current employer is trying to retain me stating that they will match the offer (I have two offers at promoted level with Accenture strategy and PWC) and give me promotion in March. But need my commitment in written first that I will stay, only then they'll proceed with retention process.

Should I stay or jump as I haven't heard anyone getting a mid year promotion (in March)?

Appreciate your thoughts. TIA

I have applied for various position levels from specialist to Director with no luck. Any ideas for what level I should be applying for?

SDR manager in Ireland with 3 years leadership exp.

2) Trying to decide if I should stay in sales dev and try move up in the org or jump back into sales and manage AEs.

So I'm at an agency and 80%+ of my time is new business. Pitch, win, set-up/semi-service until we get hires, move on to next pitch etc. (w/ fair share of losses too, of course). But I'm burned out. And while I'm valued, I don't see a return on my investments: personal time, my heart (I'm all in) and professional development. I get rewarded with small spot bonuses sometimes, but not a commission. So do I try to pivot to a real bus dev position? I feel confident I could. Anyone seen this done?
