These are all valid thoughts and questions. This webinar will discuss what it means to navigate TPE with authenticity. Whether you identify as an extrovert, introvert or something else TPE has a place for everyone. Come hear the panelist speak about they have used their various personalities to navigate the job search successfully.

  • Candidate Q&A - FACEBOOK LIVE

    LAST Chance before Onsite! The candidate development team wants to make sure you are good to go!  Any questions that you have, we want to answer. If it didn’t fit anywhere else or you didn’t know who else to ask, we are here for you.  You can log on to the Facebook live session to ask here, or submit questions ahead of time to candidates@theplacementexchange.org and we will do our best to give you the best strategies to win big at TPE 2019!

  • Networking & TPE Receptions

    Networking isn’t about connecting your computer, phone or tablet per se, but it is about connecting.  There are numerous avenues candidates can take in connecting with potential employers and colleagues: be it at conferences, on campus, or through other colleagues.  Did you know you have a “network”? Utilizing your network can create awareness of opportunities, connect you with potential champions, and benefit your search. Veteran professionals and employers will provide insight into how utilize the people you know…or might want to know.

  • March 5
    1pm - 5pm PST

    The TPE Onsite Boot Camp is an informative, supportive and challenging program provided to candidates who seek additional guidance and advice on the TPE experience. Whether you feel prepared or a need for more opportunities to hear from those who have participated in numerous search processes—from candidate to chair—Boot Camp can fit that need. Candidates who register will be invited to participate in three separate sessions, receive both group and individual attention, and hear insightful information that proves invaluable in a candidate’s final preparations for the Interview Hall and beyond.

  • Campus Interviews 101 and Negotiations

    Congratulations!  You made it through TPE…we knew you could do it!  Now it is time to prepare for the on-campus interview experience.  This is going to be a little different than your first interviews. Join this webinar to learn more about what to expect on campus and how to best prepare.  We will talk with you about questions to ask employers, proper decorum, self-care, and how to know if it’s right.

    Should I say yes? Should I say No? How much do I know if I am making the right decision? Retirement plans, annual leave, health and life insurance…Whew!  All of these new benefits can be a little overwhelming. Need some advice on how to navigate this process? TPE 365 has the webinar for you. Join us to learn the basics on Accepting Offers, Declining Offers and Benefits

  • Now that time is getting closer to starting your new position (if you haven’t started already), you should be prepared for the new experience.  As the saying goes, “you aren’t in Kansas anymore.” Join us to get prepared and gather some tips on how to survive the first 90 days. The second half of the webinar will focus on campus politics? How do you navigate this as new professional? What are the dos and don’ts?

  • Dual Career Searches

    We all know that job searching for just one person can seem tasking but what about searching with your spouse/partner? This webinar will focus on navigating the job search as a pair. From exploring websites that allow you filter by you and your spouse/partner’s job requirements to managing process of both of you having interviews, accepting/declining offers and partner negotiations.
