We’re excited to celebrate a month of building relationships! We have plenty of exciting events coming up to show our appreciation for our residents, and you could win some free goodies.
You still have time to lock in the impressive rates currently available by renewing your lease today. Remember, we are offering $500 off your September rent when you renew, and we’re still running the $250 refer-a-friend special. If you are currently residing in a four-bedroom unit and all of your roommates renew or you bring in new leases to fill the entire four-bedroom apartment, each person receives an additional $150. Offers are subject to change, please see office for details.
Our maintenance staff would like to encourage you to run your dishwasher at least once each week to avoid water backup from the sink drain and unpleasant odors in the dishwasher. Always be careful about what you put down the garbage disposal, and remember that certain foods may cause it to clog. Non-food items should never go down the disposal.
If you have any concerns with your apartment, please let us know. We would be happy to submit a work request for you to make sure everything in your apartment is in good working order. You can also submit maintenance requests online through your resident portal.
Reminders & Updates
We hope that you are enjoying your Depot experience and want to remind you that it’s important to be conscious of noise. We want to ensure all residents are able to relax, study, and live comfortably in their apartment without the disturbance of noise. We ask that you be mindful of your noise level and those living around you. If you ever have any concerns, please contact us.
We’ve had several residents receive gift cards from Community Rewards — congratulations! We appreciate your participation and reading your reviews.
We have been continuing to work hard to provide you the best possible living experience possible. If you should have any concerns related to your stay with us, please stop by the leasing office Monday–Friday from 10 a.m.–7 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m.–5 p.m., or Sunday from noon–5 p.m. You may also contact us after hours at (234) 738-0080.
Look for us at the March 4 Akron Men’s Basketball Game vs. Kent State. We’ll be giving out FREE glow sticks and a chance to participate in an on-court promotion to win six months of free rent!
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!
