TPE OnsiteCandidates

  • Scott Thomas | Candidate

    I was challenged to perform in a professional format. I was also encouraged to begin building a professional network within the field of Student Affairs.

    I have not seen an equivalent for the opportunity that TPE Onsite afforded me. I strongly recommend the experience to all graduate students!

    TPE Onsite was nothing short of a life changing experience.

    This was the only time and place that I could simulaneously pursue career opportunities while meeting amazing people from all over the country.

    Sometimes it's best to step outside of your comfort zone and see what life has in store for you!

    An interview turned into my dream job, and now my dream job is a reality!

  • Amanda Finzi-Smith | Candidate

    I was extremely excited to get to meet the school I had been dreaming of working for.

    This could not have been possible without TPE Onsite and the once in a lifetime opportunity that it has provided me in getting my dream job.

  • Lerren Tyler | Candidate

    I'm a firm believer that everything happens for a reason and I was meant to attend TPE Onsite.

TPE Onsite Summer 2020 Has Been Cancelled

In light of the continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the official cancellation of the ACUHO-I Conference and Expo in Portland, Oregon being cancelled, The Placement Exchange (inpartnership with ACUHO-I and NASPA) has made the difficult decision to cancel its summer onsite event.

TPE has the very important task of matching stellar candidates with amazing jobs. We encourage you to utilize our online job board to post open positions and also continue to view our board for your next position in your professional career. We also encourage you to continue to utilize our online resources including virtual roundtable sessions, blogs and other content-filled resources to aid you in the professional job search process as either a candidate or an employer. This summer we will be offering new resources focusing on career development, personal and professional exploration, and doing our best to embody the collaborative nature and inter-connectedness of our field. Our programs, services, and initiatives—career coaching, resume review, webinars, and educational sessions—are designed to strengthen the placement experience for all involved - both candidates and employers.

We are committed to making the job search process a rewarding, successful, and low-stress experience for all involved! During this difficult time, we are still here to support you in your needs. Please let us know what you need from us and know we are readily available to answer questions and address any concerns. The Placement Exchange remains your one-stop shop for Student Affairs positions. Whether it is your first job in Student Affairs, or your next step up the organizational ladder, your search for a new and exciting future begins here. 

We hope to see you at our next TPE Onsite event!

Future TPE Onsite Event date includes:

Spring 2021: March 17-20 | Kansas City, MO                          

Thank you for supporting TPE. The Placement Exchange continues to focus on providing a high-quality, comprehensive job search experience which prepares candidates for every aspect of the search process. This effort will continue to be led by a team of professionals who are experts in our field and represent the numerous functional areas in Higher Education and Student Affairs.
