TPE Virtual 2022


  • Joseph Bozzo | Candidate | Volunteer

    TPE is a vibrant, supportive, developmental, and invigorating opportunity for me as a candidate and volunteer.

    From the warm welcome at check-in to the genuine care exhibited by the coaches and presenters, I felt that I had all I needed to give it my all when it came time for my interviews.

  • Tiffany Firestone | Candidate | TPE Intern

    I felt confident and excited to engage.

    I appreciated how positive everyone was and how much we all wanted the others to succeed. Thanks to TPE I found an incredible position that is a perfect fit. I wouldn't have known if it weren't for my ability to interview with so many institutions.

  • Kelli Dowd | Candidate | Volunteer

    I managed to find multiple positions working with service and leadership programming and was able to find exactly the position I was looking for.

    Thank you TPE for showing me the interview ropes!

And last, but certainly not least, I must show some love for the 2022 TPE Planning Committee. Words cannot express the immense gratitude I have for this phenomenal group of individuals. I knew when this team came together that they would be a force to be reckoned with. The committee hit the ground running and did everything from a place of love. As chair, they challenged me to grow, kept me grounded, lifted my spirit, and brought many smiles to my face. So, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU to Tim, D’Najah, Spencer, Karess, Nick, Ashley, Connor, Leah, Dylan, and Sahmyah for your brilliance, ethic of care, creativity, and dedication!
