The school semester is quickly coming to an end, and we know this time of year can be very stressful. Don’t worry — we know you all will finish strong! After a long day in class or after a strenuous day at work, take full advantage of our many amenities, including our HUGE hot tubs on the entertainment deck and our oversize smart TV in the clubhouse. Looking for something to do? Join us during the many events we’ll be hosting throughout the month.

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:

  1. Research yourself. Log out of your social media accounts and do some searches for yourself on search engines and social media sites.
  2. 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.
  3. Get a professional-looking headshot for LinkedIn and other public-facing online profiles.
  4. 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!
