TPE Spring 2021 | Virtual Event | Important Information
TPE Virtual 2021 was a success! Thank you to the 900 candidates and 150 employers who participated in over 3,000 interviews during TPE Virtual 2021. TPE Virtual hosted 26 workshops and educational sessions and coordinated over 100 candidate coaching sessions. We wish everyone continued success in the job search and recruitment process and look forward to hearing updates! In the meantime, continue to check out the online job board and TPE educational sessions!
TPE has been evolving over the past few years with an emphasis on leveraging technology to create more opportunities to enhance both the employer (recruitment) experience as well as the candidate (job search) experience. We have simultaneously been intentional in thinking about the limitations around access that coincide with a place-based in-person interview event. While the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated our timeline, we are at a point in time where we are ready - and excited - to make this leap to a virtual offering.
TPE 2021 will be entirely virtual. Our enhanced virtual TPE experience will best serve the needs of our employers and candidates in Spring 2021. At the same time, we understand the current landscape and the uncertainty around spring recruitment season and hiring possibilities. 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 may be virtual, but we will be providing valuable opportunities to connect employers and candidates, the opportunity to conduct "face-to-face" interviews in an efficient and convenient manner, and access to more job search, career readiness, and recruitment resources than ever before.
The higher education landscape is changing now more than ever, and TPE looks forward to working with our campus colleagues and student affairs job seekers to assist to advance the field through the job search process.
