On Thursday, August 23, 2018, we held an event to celebrate and thank our summer students as they finish their summer work terms with us.
Summer students from all departments and regions gathered at LIV Apartments for a private event where they were treated to lunch, breakout sessions and an afternoon of thanks. The event was kicked off by opening statements followed by an open discussion with some of our top executives about the company, it’s culture, and it’s growth.
Later that afternoon, the students branched into breakout sessions where they were able to pick the brains of executives from several departments. The discussions circulated around what roles in Marketing, Sales, Leasing, Finance, and Property Operations looked like. Students had the chance to ask questions about the roles they were interested in and get real advice from their direct superiors on how to succeed. They also touched on their summer roles and reflected on their own experiences and growth.
The last session of the afternoon touched on Social Responsibility within the company as it is an important part of the culture. During the group discussion, they touched on topics such as responsible energy, the housing crisis, charity work, and more. Here, students also had the opportunity to share causes close to them and engage in discussion about issues facing people today.
The day ended with several in the group heading to the airport to catch flights back to their respective cities. Although short lived, we are thrilled we had the chance to celebrate our summer students in a first-of-its-kind event for the company.
We can’t wait to see what next summer brings!
Thank you to all students who joined us this summer, we have enjoyed getting to know you and having you work alongside us this summer. Best of luck in your continued studies!
