At first glance it seems sparse. The timeshare jobs bloggers search only turned up timeshare sales jobs in Canada and Greece. The European timeshare jobs outlook seems better than the US at the moment. I haven’t heard of many timeshare developers hiring on more sales staff. Perhaps a few rehires after the layoffs from 2010.
As always there will be room for a good closer in sales. But, as far as the support staff goes, everyone is streamlining their process, double tasking their employees, and keeping as many cuts in place as possible.
What about jobs in the timeshare resales market? Again, there is always room for a good sales person who good closing skills and understands the market.
If you are considering entering or re-entering the timeshare resales industry look for a company like Resort Inventory International – a division of Stroman Realty, Inc. They offer a company experience that is long term, has credentials, and a high profile in the real estate market for timeshares. From the RPMLS.com website: “Stroman Realty has sold timeshare properties located in 25 countries with buyers and sellers in 94 countries in over 1331 different timeshare resorts. We also market on the Internet to those interested in timeshare vacations as a form of second home ownership. The internet has significantly enhanced marketing efforts nationally and worldwide.
