As Audrey Hepburn said, “The best thing to hold onto is each other.” February is a wonderful month of reflection and celebration! We get the chance to reflect as we keep working on our New Year’s resolutions as well as celebrate those we love. We’re very excited to continue on with such wonderful residents as we start leasing for 2016–2017. Come down to the office today to let us know what you are reflecting and celebrating throughout this month of love. Don’t forget to sign a lease at the lowest prices available today!
Spring cleaning is right around the corner! Just a reminder that there is a plunger on each floor in the trash room. Also, if you use up your multi-use cleaner/bathroom cleaner, and you can bring it down to the office to get refilled. You can also come rent a vacuum to help keep your apartment shiny clean. If you have any other maintenance requests, come down to the office and let us know right away, or submit a request online through your resident portal.
Reminders & Updates
Come to the office today and let us know if you have gotten a new phone number, email, or way of contacting you. We love to keep in contact with our residents and make sure that everyone is up to date with events, rent, and everything we have happening at Titan Court.
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.
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!
