Advice for appraisal trainees 
and persons considering an appraisal career (wannabes)

Getting your first appraisal job has always been difficult. You had to know someone, or be in the right place at the right time (the luck factor). 

Now, getting started in residential appraising is even more difficult as few lenders hire trainees (where most appraisers got trained until about 10 years ago). Few fee appraisal companies hire trainees. A good way to start is doing clerical support work in an appraisal office.  

If you have a Bachelor's degree in English, Economics, or Business, or an MBA, consider commercial appraising, where there is more opportunity. If you can offer something besides a "warm body" and a few classes, such as experience running a computer network, you will have a better change.
