Position Description

The University of Oregon is poised to embark on an exciting new mission to bolster our students’ academic, professional, and personal success. We have developed a new coordinated, holistic advising model and we are looking for committed, diverse, and talented professionals to join us!

Our new integrated academic and career model will focus student advising around one of six central themes called “Flight Paths.” Each thematic Flight Path will guide students in exploring and planning the academic and career paths aligned with their values, skills, and interests. We are excited to launch this proven approach to enhancing the advising experience for our students while supporting their timely graduation from the University and preparation for their careers. We want you to be a part of it!

Under this new model, we have many career opportunities at the University of Oregon, including:
· Academic and Career Advisor (24 openings)
· Academic and Career Coordinator (6 openings)
· Advising Case Manager (2 openings)
· Career Readiness Coach (this opening)
· Diversity and Retention Advisor (posting coming soon)
· Degree Progression Specialist (2 openings)

Professionals in these positions should love working with a diverse student population and have a passion to help them succeed in their academic, career, and personal ventures.

Applicants who are interested in and qualified for multiple positions should apply for each unique posting they wish to be considered for; applications will not transfer between positions. Applications for all positions will be reviewed on a regular, rolling basis, with the intent of having most positions filled by June. Positions will remain posted until all openings are filled.

Career Readiness Coaches work collaboratively with Academic and Career Advisors (ACAs) through six thematic career communities called Flight Paths. Within their designated Flight Path, Coaches help students identify opportunities to gain experience relevant to their chosen major and ultimately, career, by providing both developmental career education and just-in-time career preparation to ensure they are successful in landing desired opportunities such as full-time employment, part-time jobs, internships, and experiential learning. This position will proactively help students connect with opportunities by staying up-to-date on employer and industry trends and through frequent collaboration with the University Career Center Employer Engagement Team.

The role of the Career Readiness Coach has three main components: 1) to support exploring students in their assigned flight paths (career communities) by providing advisors across campus with information about relevant experiential and career opportunities, 2) to share specialized career information with academic and career advisors across campus, and 3) to provide direct support to students once they have chosen a major by providing industry-specific career education and preparation programs and services. Programming will require this position to facilitate workshops and instruct courses.
