MCPA Job Search Jump Start Friday, February 21, 2014 10:00am-3:00pm
We are proud to announce that the 2014 MCPA Job Search Jump Start will be held on Friday, February 21, 2014, from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm at the headquarters for ACPA in Washington, DC. This year's conference will provide job-searching graduate students and young professionals in higher education/student affairs a real-life simulation of placement services at national student affairs conferences such as ACPA's C3.
The program will feature interviewing tips, professional etiquette, and resume and cover letter development. Participants will have the opportunity to participate in mock interviews and receive feedback with professional Student Affairs staff members from around the region. The resume and cover letter development piece will see the attendees submit their resumes prior to arriving for volunteers in the field to review and give feedback. Participants will also have the opportunity to talk with a panel of professionals in the field to discuss current trends and tips to being successful in your job search.
LOCATION ACPA is located at the National Center for Higher Education, One Dupont Circle NW, Suite 300 Washington, DC 20036. ACPA is conveniently located off the DC Metro Red Line.
