The Training Factor is always looking for ways to support multifamily education. We are proud supporters of the Peggy Waskom Super Bowl, an event that supports GAIEF and future careers in the apartment industry. We have come to realize that there are numerous individuals who are interested in a career in multifamily and there are many individuals who are trying to advance their career path but may not be with a company that has active training and coaching program in place. Hence the decision was made to launch our own “Aspire Multifamily Scholarship Program”
At the end of each quarter we will be providing two multifamily scholarships to successful nominees. The two students will be able to have a one year subscription to our course catalog and will receive certificates of completion for each course that they take. Proper education and training will be of great benefit when applying for a job in multifamily and will help students who are looking to advance their careers.
Qualified nominees will be required to keep up with the pacing schedule that will be outlined for them and to post feedback about each course on our website and through any social media tools that they frequent. In order to qualify you need to be interested in a future career in multifamily or already working for a property management company. You will need to frequent one or more social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn.
The Training Factor team has already made one of the nominations. We are pleased to announce that Jolene Sopalski will be our first student to participate in our program. Jolene has already taken a couple of our courses and has expressed to us how much she has learned from them and appreciated. Jolene demonstrates an amazing passion for the multifamily industry and is always seeking knowledge and is willing to share hers. We are very proud to have her as our first candidate. For our second candidate we are going to have a little contest for you in order to qualify.
