      TPE Onsite 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!
