  • Tomas Jimenez | Employer

    Connecting with professionals in person and telling our story was very important to the search.

    I was blown away with the quality of professionals I met at TPE.

  • Katy Pelton | Employer

    We are able to meet a diverse group of potential new employees who are just as excited to explore their employment opportunities.

    The positive atmosphere of TPE gives energy to everyone on both sides of the hiring process.

Recruit. Connect. Interview.

Connecting Employers with Top Notch Candidates

TPE Virtual 2021 took place March 1 - March 5. Registration is now closed. Thanks to the 150 employers who conducted over 3,000 interviews with 900 candidates for making TPE Virtual 2021 a huge success! We wish you continued success in the recruitment and selection process!

For over 10 years, The Placement Exchange has focused on providing a high-quality, comprehensive recruitment and job search experience allowing employers the opportunity to connect with, to screen, and to interview the top Student Affairs candidates.  In 2021, the flagship TPE Spring event will transition to a virtual event. We understand the current uncertainty around the spring recruitment season and hiring possibilities, and a completely virtual TPE will also provide for greater flexibility for employers, as well as fewer financial limitations (travel, hotel, time away from work, etc.) for both candidates and interview teams.  TPE will spend the next few months continuing to focus on building a new and enhanced virtual TPE experience to best serve the needs of our employers in this current landscape.  Through our commitment to excellence, strong customer service, professional development, and education and resources, the TPE Team devotes our energy to building a positive, synergistic, innovative, and educational career placement experience for all TPE stakeholders.  We are committed to advancing TPE and making TPE Virtual even better than our traditional onsite event. 

The TPE Spring Event is the premier job placement event.  We welcome back the hundreds of institutions who have been with the TPE Spring Event (formerly known as 'TPE Onsite') since 2008, and we extend our hardiest “welcome aboard” to first-time employers! With the careful planning of our TPE team, innovative technology, unmatched customer service, and hundreds of registered candidates, the TPE Spring Event is a proven choice for securing first-rate candidates for your positions, teams, and institutions. Whether you need assistance with position marketing, interview scheduling, virtual networking receptions, candidate connections, or help navigating the recruitment process, we aim to be your go-to resource. It is no accident that 99% of employers recommend TPE to their colleagues. We look forward to keeping our record strong and partnering with you to make TPE Virtual your best placement experience ever.

Personal Virtual Interview Schedule

TPE will provide each employer with a personal interview schedule.  Candidates willalso have a personal interview schedule.  Please use the TPE Schedule to schedule all interviews with candidates (30-minute and 60-minute interviews.)  Once the interview scheduling opens, you will be able to directly connect with candidates open availability.  Our schedule provides the unique element of only showing mutual availability. Failure to use our system will make it difficult for candidates and other employers to schedule as needed. This schedule allows you to keep track of all your interviews in one convenient location linking directly to the candidate profiles.  

Employer Interview Teams

To share the schedule and candidate profiles with other members of your interview team, the employer of record (the registered employer) should share login credentials.  It is recommended that you change your password to something that you do not use elsewhere.  You can add additional "contact people" within each virtual event job post to direct candidate questions.
