Available to all residents, the free, robust platform will help connect job-seeking residents with hiring employers
AUSTIN, TX (September 19, 2017) — As part of its ongoing commitment and dedication to residence life and student development, Campus Advantage®, a leader in student housing, providing property management, consulting, acquisitions, and development services, today announced the implementation of a new career resource, the Campus Advantage Career Success Portal, which provides its residents with the tools needed to transition to the workplace.
The Campus Advantage Career Success Portal provides residents with 24/7 access to tools needed to help them perfect their resume, explore self-assessments, and practice their interview skills. Designed for Campus Advantage, and powered by a leading HR technology provider, the new portal provides all Campus Advantage residents with job search tools, instant job alerts and matches, online career management, resume development, social media development, company research, interview skills (including the ability to record a video mock interview), career assessments, document libraries, and online workshops for career transition — — all of which helps them become better workforce candidates.
According to data from the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, people who use this tool are employed three times faster than the national average, thus providing Campus Advantage’s residents with a competitive advantage when it comes to finding a job.
“In an increasingly crowded field of student housing providers, Campus Advantage differentiates itself by providing a holistic approach to helping its residents thrive, including this valuable career resource,” said Dan Oltersdorf, Senior Vice President of Campus Relations and Residence Life at Campus Advantage. “From the moment a resident signs a lease, they have access to this tool, giving Campus Advantage residents a leg-up when it comes to finding new job opportunities and preparing them for their next job application.”
The student experience is truly at the core of what Campus Advantage does and the implementation of the Campus Advantage Career Success Portal further emphasizes the student housing leader’s dedication to residence life and student development. With its Students First® experience, Campus Advantage focuses on the student experience, creating successful communities AND successful students. When a resident signs a lease with Campus Advantage, they are not only making an investment in where they live but in their future. This is truly what sets Campus Advantage apart, making Campus Advantage the success it is today.
“Our mission at Campus Advantage is to serve and inspire both our employees and residents to achieve their full potential and this career success portal fits right in with that mission,” said Mike Peter, President and CEO at Campus Advantage. “If we can, in any way, help set our residents up to succeed then we, in turn, are successful.”
