The staff of The Oliver is just as surprised as you that we are already in the third month of 2017. With this being the month of midterms, we are well aware that our residents will be under a lot of pressure and we want to lighten the load as much as possible! Look out for some cool events this month to help you de-stress and unwind.

 

Maintenance Tips

Here at The Oliver, we provide 24/7 on-call maintenance. That means that whenever you have an emergency maintenance problem, you can simply call the office, and you will be forwarded to one of our wonderful maintenance technicians who will be there in no time to help you out!

Rent is due on the first of every month and can be paid via check, money order, or via online payment. To pay online, simply visit livetheoliver.com and sign in to your account to make a payment.

Water bills are due at the same time as rent and can be combined with your rent payment

 

Soft Skills Make a Difference

A positive attitude and the ability to look someone in the eye while giving a firm handshake can truly set two very similar candidates apart in the job process. In this day and age of hiring and recruiting, we’ve been hearing a lot about soft skills, or people skills, when describing a candidate’s interviewing and hiring process. These are the skills that basically allow you to get along and interact with others in a work and social environment. Your ability to evaluate and hone your people skills should be part of your job prep, just as you ensure your resume is clean and typo-free.

An employee should be able to communicate, listen, share ideas, and interact with people (sometimes difficult people) in a way that demonstrates professionalism at all times. During the interview process, while your resume is showing your credentials, you are inherently demonstrating your soft skills. It takes constructive thought to be the person you want to be in the workplace. It doesn’t just happen by chance — it happens via thoughtful awareness, informed actions, and respectful engagements.

The skills of success, such as being adaptable, being positive, having a willingness to assist, and conveying a strong work ethic, are arguably more important than any degree or credential.
