It’s February, and spring is right around the corner! It’s also almost time for midterms, so make sure to stay focused and study hard. Looking for a quiet place to study? The Titan Court study lounges are a great place to get homework done! The Eugene Public Library is also right across the street and is a great resource for students. If you’re looking for a break from studying, we’ll have plenty of great events going on this month; check our event calendar for the details.
Make sure to utilize the great amenities at Titan Court! Visit our computer lounge located on the 4th floor; we have Macs and PCs, as well as free printing. If you have to fax or scan any documents, just come down to the leasing office, and we’ll be happy to help you out!

Thinking about renewing your lease here at Titan Court? We would love if you stayed with us for another year! Come down to the office and ask us about our renewal specials.
Don’t forget to pay your rent before the 4th at 10 p.m. to avoid any late fees! You can pay online at www.titancourt.com, or bring a check or money order to the office. Money orders can be purchased at your bank, 7-Eleven, Walmart, or any other local store. If we aren’t in the office, we have a dropbox located right outside of our office door.
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.
Here are five 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 you and connect you with resources to assist in your success!
