Mobile Home Park Manager is the #1 Job Searched For in USA
Cleaning up old mobile home parks, as all mobile home park investors know, is big business and a hot business. Not only is Ben Carson a big supporter of manufactured housing and the communities that give many an affordable place to live, but as zoning in some areas put a tight squeeze on MHPs the only route of survival (and thriving) is cleaning the place up.
It's no wonder that of the top 20 searched for jobs according to indeed.com research, Mobile Home Park Manager is the #1 searched-for job in the US with an 811% increase in searches since 2016. Good mobile home park managers are essential!
As the labor market tightens, it’s drawing out first-time job seekers and those re-entering the workforce — leading to some interesting job searches, according to new data from Indeed.com.
“What we’re looking at here, is the fast growing job searches in the U.S.,” Andrew Flowers, an economist at Indeed.com, told Yahoo Finance. Flowers said the team pulled together all the searches people had made on Indeed.com for the calendar year of 2017, and analyzed the top 20 recurring ones.
The data revealed that the top-searched job last year was for a mobile home park manager role.
Indeed.com’s Martha Gimbel, who also worked on this data, added that while this list reflects the job seekers’ interest, it doesn’t necessarily represent employer needs — “though we would assume that job seekers are at least somewhat responding to employer needs.”
Some of these jobs have had “thousands and thousands of searches” since 2016, but Flowers said that the outpouring of interest in the top 20 came from recent macro trends.
For example, the growth in the mobile homes market has led job seekers to believe that there was a demand for managerial and maintenance roles, according to Flowers.
The Manufacturing Housing Institute, a trade organization representing the factory-built housing industry, estimated that in 2017, around 93,000 of the homes in the U.S. were manufactured, up from 81,000 the year before. (Manufactured homes are prefabricated off-site and are also known as mobile homes.)
