    • 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!

    Welcome to TPE 2021-2022

    It is with great enthusiasm that I get to serve as the TPE Chair for the 2021-2022 TPE Planning Committee and welcome you to The Placement Exchange. My time with TPE dates back to 2014 where I had the privilege to serve as an ambassador and intern while in grad school. It was during this time that I came to meet other dedicated practitioners and begin to discover who I wanted to be and the impact I wanted to have in the field. I am glad to have found a “professional” home in TPE and am grateful for the many opportunities to give back to an organization that has poured so much into me. This Queer Black womxn from the southside of Chicago never could have imagined becoming the chair for this amazing committee and I owe it to TPE (and many others) for helping me get to where I am. 

    This year’s TPE Planning Committee is ready and equipped; we are forward-thinking, innovative, flexible, and will be receptive to the needs of our constituents. TPE is more than placement; we are committed to providing a premier experience focused on career development, personal and professional exploration, and collaboration one connection at a time. Whether you are a candidate, employer, or completely new to TPE, I invite you to engage with our slate of events, educational programs, resources, and social media. We look forward to connecting with you!
