  • TPE Virtual will take place from March 1 - March 5.  This virtual format allows us the opportunity to implement new and exciting initiatives while maintaining all of our favorite aspects of our traditional TPE Spring event.  Whether you have participated in TPE Onsite in the past or not, whether you have potential job openings or not, we encourage any professionals who hope to make a hire in the upcoming year to attend the information session.  Learn more about the benefits of TPE, what TPE will entail, and how to connect with candidates.

  • As we move into our 2nd TPE Virtual event, still in the midst of a pandemic and jobs crisis where financial and human resources are in short supply, you may be wondering why and how TPE Virtual can be of value.  Aside from it being efficient, flexible, and affordable, it connects our employers to large numbers of talented, diverse, and prepared candidates. Come hear from a 2020 TPE Virtual participant about his and his institution’s personal experience with TPE Virtual—- the ups, the downs, and the challenges of the current higher education jobs landscape will be addressed.

    This 15-minute personal story about motivating teams will be followed by 15-minutes of Q&A.  The entire event is short, simply 30-minutes to take a break, learn, and connect with others. 

    Featured Story Teller:  Dr. Cory Shapiro - Assistant Director of Leadership and Development, Arizona State University, University Housing

  • TPE Virtual Spring 2021

    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 readineess, and recruitment resources than ever before.

  • This session will give a general overview of the job search process, particularly in response to the current higher education employment landscape.  Participants will learn from current practioners int he field about current hiring trends in Student Affairs, with a focus on job search strategies for anyone planning on going through a job search in the upcoming year.

    This series, geared towards 2nd-year graduate students, will provide a “jumpstart” to the job search process. Sessions will provide practical tips for job search readiness to help participants stand out among other candidates.

  • “So, tell me about yourself? How would you add value to this job? To the Department? Ito the nstitution?” This important session will help participants reflect on how they add value to positions and the profession, with practical strategies as to how to best articulate that value throughout the job search process. Often, strong candidates are unable to properly showcase their value, or explain how their experience would benefit the position to which they are applying.  This session will help job seekers think about what they need to do to stand out in all stages of their job search.

  • A well-done job search is not unlike a well-done student/campus program. You wouldn’t implement a new initiative on campus without proper planning or including other people in the process. Yet, most people enter the job search and start applying without prior planning or making the right connections. It’s only October, but now is the time to start the job search planning process. This session will focus on the often-overlooked elements of the job search including: making connections to people (who, how, where, why?), strategies for researching positions and organizing a job search, reflecting on “for now” and longer-term goals, and creating an action plan around fill experience gaps over the next few months.

    This series geared towards 2nd-year graduate students will provide a “jumpstart” to the job search process. Sessions will provide practical tips for job search readiness to help participants stand out among other candidates.

  • This panel session will include a mix of recent candidates and employers to provide insight into different types of opportunities based on functional area, institution type, geographic locations, etc. and how and how to best navigate the job search for a particular interest area.  Hear from panelists who found positions in various types of roles, including those that differed from their graduate practicum.
