Maintenance Tips

Service requests — Please make sure that you put in work orders for your apartment ASAP when you have identified a potential problem. This will help to ensure that a small issue doesn’t become a major one.

After-hours requests — If it is after hours, please call the on-call number, and the technician or Community Assistant that is on call will determine whether the issue is an emergency or not.

 

 

Reminders & Updates

Try to pay your monthly rent by or on the 1st so that you don’t forget to pay in general. This is how you avoid late fees and being charged more money in the long run. Also, if the electricity bill has been in our name within the last two months, please be on the lookout for an additional charge to what you owe for this month from NV Energy.

If you have any additional questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us in the front office. Thank you!

 

 

Google yourself. Your future may depend on it.

Whether graduation is on the horizon, or you’re looking for an internship or to take the next step in your career, it’s important you are ready to shine, both online and off. The job and internship search is no longer just about your resume. Your entire online presence is part of your overall brand. According to CareerBuilder’s annual social media recruitment survey, 52% of employers are going online to research candidates. 48% of hiring managers found information online that led them not to hire candidates, including inappropriate photos (46%), information about drinking or drug use (40%), defamatory posts (29%), and even bad-mouthing of a former company or fellow employee (34%).

Here are some tips to look your best when that potential employer hits the search button:

  • Research yourself. Log out of your social media accounts and do some searches for yourself on search engines and social media sites.
  • Create an attractive and comprehensive LinkedIn profile. LinkedIn has features that allow you to showcase your education, classwork, and projects. According to Forbes, over 97% of employers in a recent survey used LinkedIn for recruiting.
  • Get a professional-looking headshot for LinkedIn and other public-facing online profiles.
  • Utilize your campus career center!

As a resident of a Campus Advantage community, we want to help you achieve your full potential. Stay tuned for career success events and additional resources, and don’t hesitate to reach out if we can be of support in any way!
