Thank You, Campus Pointe!

We, at Campus Pointe, would like to thank you for being such wonderful residents. We have enjoyed you being such an important part of our community and hope that you enjoy your time with us as much as we do with you. As finals approach, we know that you are all becoming very busy. Please don’t forget to renew your lease for the 2016–2017 school year as housing in Kent is very limited. Renew as soon as possible to ensure the lowest rate possible!

 

Special Highlight

Locked out or have a maintenance emergency? Remember, there is always a Community Assistant on call! Just call the office at (330) 673-2202, wait for the list of options, and dial 6. You’ll be connected with the CA who’ll be able to assist you.

Looking for a package? Many times, packages do come into the office. However, if you’re expecting a package from USPS, it is possible that it’s in your mailbox. If there’s a key in your mailbox, please use that to open the corresponding parcel locker below the mailboxes.

 

 

Reminders & Updates

Here are some tips for a successful year at Campus Pointe:

Rent is due on the 1st of each month! Luckily, you have until the 3rd to pay your rent before late fees begin accruing on the 4th at 8:00 a.m. If you have any questions regarding the payment portal or about your account, please see Jackie Grant in the office or email her at [email protected].

We are officially towing! Baker’s Towing surveys the parking lots every evening. Make sure your parking pass is located in the lower left-hand corner of your rear windshield to avoid any confusion. Please remind guests to use the visitor lot so they are not towed! If you have not picked up your parking pass, please do so ASAP in the office.

Need something fixed? Put in a service request one of two ways: You can call the office during regular office hours, or complete a request online through your resident portal at campuspointekent.com. Please keep in mind that our maintenance team has limited hours on weekends unless it is an emergency — non-emergency requests will be handled Monday.

 

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!
