Technology Basics

Technology is always evolving, and most jobs require use of multiple systems/programs to optimize the efficiency of the business. Multifamily professionals’ primary job is to connect people to their homes and create exceptional living experience. This entails communicating with people through varied methods and using different tools to manage your workload. 

Various tools are available to help manage our tasks, adhere to deadlines and improve communication with our team, residents, and prospects/future residents.   In any professional environment, the more systems you are familiar with, the more efficient you can be. 

By the end of this class, students will be able to:

 Classify basic Excel functions.

  • Complete basic functions associated with Microsoft Word.
  • Manage email and calendar in Microsoft Office using the tools found in the program.
  • Operate zoom and apply functions to relevant job responsibilities.

 Basic Business Writing

 Sound writing skills are essential for any professional in any field. Writing allows you to effectively communicate with others and to sell any ideas, products, and/or services you’re offering. 

 

How you write is viewed as an extension of the business you represent; more importantly, your writing reflects your personal brand.  Embracing the basic principles of writing can not only improve written communication, but also reduces confusion as messages are more likely to be understood when they are clear, concise, and structured appropriately.  

 

By the end of this class, students will be able to:

 

  • Describe the 7 c’s involved in written communication.
  • Summarize the basic components of a sentence and structure of a paragraph.
  • Apply rules of grammar to business correspondence.
  • Explain the importance of planning prior to writing any document.
  • Construct basic business correspondence as it pertains to the role of multifamily professional.
