Now that the semester is in full swing, we hope it got off to a great start for all of our residents. This month, we have some great events in store to help prepare our residents for life after graduation. Our Career Success Week will be the second week of February, and further details are listed in the events section. Love is also in the air this month, so be sure to check out some of our Valentine’s Day-themed events.

- Visitor parking is located solely along the back two rows of the property. Don’t forget “compact” does not indicate visitor parking, and only the signs on the fence that say “visitor parking” are for guests. Any cars in visitor parking will be subject to towing if the vehicle is not registered with the office with the $50 fee paid. If you need clarification, please feel free to ask the office.
- All residents are allowed to have visitors for three consecutive nights every 30 calendar days. Any longer than that is considered an unauthorized or illegal occupant.

Focus on Career Success
Whether you are a sophomore looking at internships or a senior getting ready for that first job after graduation, the spring semester brings added pressure as you seek to set yourself apart and set yourself up for success.
We want to be part of your success. Be sure to check out our career success events this month, including our live keynote event (February 25) with Mike Tomasello: “How to Land ANY Job, Even When Everyone Says You Can’t.”
Here are 5 tips to keep you moving forward on a career success track:
Tip #1: The key to getting hired is selling yourself better than the other candidates. What’s your pitch? Practice concise ways to share your value and what you are looking for.
Tip #2: Your resume’s only job is to get your foot in the door! Have it critiqued at the career center.
Tip #3: Google yourself: What does your online presence tell future employers? Are you focusing on your online brand? Your potential employer is! Work on shaping your presence online and off.
Tip #4: Come up with EVERY reason an employer might not hire you — and an answer for each objection. For example, “What I lack in relevant experience, I make up for with my drive and proven ability to learn new things quickly.”
Tip #5: Learn from the best! Find people doing what you want to do and doing it well — and ask them for guidance. It’ll be well worth your time and perhaps a few cups of coffee to do informational interviews with others on their success stories.
These tips are obviously just the tip of the iceberg. Watch out for career success experiences here at your community. Whether you want feedback on your pitch or need someone to critique your resume, let us know how we can help!
