    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.

  • Flourishing at TPE Onsite

    The TPE Onsite experience is exciting and dynamic, and is a benchmark for many in their search process. How do you “DO” TPE well? How many interviews should you have? Do you have time to eat? What should you wear? Experienced candidates and employers will share advice on how to make your time at TPE Onsite the most successful.

  • What are your personal and professional goals? How do you stand out in a pool of candidates? What makes you uniquely you?

    Google describes branding as “the promotion of a particular product or company by means of advertising and distinctive design.” In today’s world, it has become increasingly important to also consider your personal brand – defining who you are, your values, and your beliefs both in your personal and professional life. Does your elevator pitch sell who you are?  What type of digital footprint are you leaving? Panelists for this webinar will discuss ways to build and design your brand so that it accurately reflects you and can be used as a tool for career advancement.

  • Acing the Phone / Skype Interview

    Now is the time!  Join a panel of experts to prepare for your first round phone or Skype interviews.  The panelists will provide advice on answering and asking questions, selling your skills, and common taboos.  You will also get a chance to ask questions that you have to gain multiple perspectives.

  • Applications Close January 25.
