Campus Advantage is an industry leader with global experience in student housing. Campus Advantage provides property management, consulting, acquisitions, and development with the goal of creating successful student housing communities. We’re kind of a big deal and we didn’t get there by resting on our laurels. We’re a hardworking, scrappy bunch.
The Resident Director (RD) position is much more than just a student job. They are coaches, crisis managers, marketers, relationship-builders, conflict resolvers, event planners, and mentors. The RD is a leader of peers and links the management team with the part-time student staff. This is a career-builder and a life-changer (for you and our residents). The rewards are great and the expectations high as our RDs are members of the management team for a multi-million dollar operation while having an impact on the student staff (CAs) they oversee and in the lives of hundreds of residents every day.
Who are we looking for? Hint: people who share our values:
Integrity. Do you want to make your mom proud? We live the Golden Rule, trying always to do the right thing. Do you have the ability to work well under pressure and prioritize multiple projects while remaining focused on the level of service you deliver, all the while, juggling numerous deadlines? If so, you’ll rock this!
Intelligence: The right experience matters as you create experiences for your fellow students and serve as a leader of peers. RDs must be a current student, who has lived in a student housing environment for at least one semester and holds a GPA of 2.5 or better. We believe that learning is a life-long endeavor, and we strive to stay ahead through innovations.
The position requires a great deal of time and energy. RDs are expected to put academic first and this job second.
While not required, you get Brownie points for having: supervisory or community assistant/resident assistant experience.
Passion: What’s even more important than experience is an upbeat, friendly demeanor. A passion for how the work you do impacts those around! At Campus Advantage, our core value of Passion means we desire to do our best, and we never, ever give up! Slackers need not apply.
MOJO. Are you motivated and do you possess the ability to make a difference and deliver world-class customer service? If so, we want to talk to you. At Campus Advantage, we attract and charm others through our success and outlook on life. We take our work and our communities, but not ourselves, seriously!
What will you be doing every day? As a Resident Director, you are on the front lines of selling and delivering the Campus Advantage experience! The fundamentals of what you do fall into 5 key areas:
Lead and Communicate: You must be a communication and leadership ninja! You are the face of the Students First® Experience. We trust you to build and coach a great team, and communicate with important stakeholders like residents, guarantors, teammates, and the university.
Plan the Work/Work the Plan: To make all of this work, you will execute the management and marketing plans, coordinate and participate in the Students First® Experience. In the case of emergency, it is all hands-on deck to execute our emergency preparedness plan.
Heads on Beds: In order to provide amazing experiences to our residents, we have to get them in the door! This includes understanding your market, marketing and leasing, customer service, and residence life.
Collect Rent/Pay the Bills: This is a multi-million dollar operation. Keep those dollars in mind when planning events; suggesting community improvements, and when using equipment, supplies, and materials. Materials and equipment don't magically show up!
Preserve the Asset: Maintaining the physical asset is a fundamental aspect of this role. Put your ninja skills to work when serving on-call. You will need to kick butt at participating in the notorious process student housing calls “turn”.
