Comprehensive Job Search Experience
Since 2008, The Placement Exchange has focused on providing a high-quality, comprehensive job search experience which prepares candidates for every aspect of the search process. This effort is led by a team of professionals who are experts in our field and represent the numerous functional areas in Higher Education and Student Affairs. Through our commitment to excellence, strong customer service, professional development, and education, we devote our energy to building a positive, synergistic, innovative, and educational career placement experience for all TPE stakeholders.

TPE Onsite: The premier job placement event in Student Affairs.
TPE Spring Onsite provides a face-to-face opportunity for hundreds of employers to find great candidates, and for candidates to interview for open positions at hundreds of campuses nationwide. Onsite candidates will have access to great resources including preparation webinars, onsite coaches, interview assistance, resume review, and more. The TPE Spring Onsite Event has the benefit of numbers (candidates, employers, job posts, interviews), but the quality of personalized resources and amenities during a crucial time in the search process.
Whether you’re looking for a new position for yourself, or just want to see what else is out there, we encourage you to start your search on the TPE Job Board and register and participate in the TPE Spring Onsite Event.
