Get excited for OPE! Join members of the OPE leadership for an energizing welcome to your placement experience and a few fun giveaways. You will feel more confident and prepared after this brief review of services and resources available to candidates. Following the brief review, our staff will take questions.

6:30 p.m.: Candidate Roundtable

Put OPE’s network to work for you! Immediately following the Candidate Welcome, some of the best professionals in the field will share their advice and wisdom with candidates before leading small, roundtable discussions. These conversations are your opportunity to ask questions about search processes, resumes, cover letters, job transitions, and much more! This session is ideal for all candidates; roundtable groups will be formed around position types (Grad Assistantships, Entry Level (Bachelors), Entry Level (Masters), and Mid Level).

Presenters for the 2015 Candidate Roundtables will be announced soon! Past presenters have included:

  • Tarome Alford, Springfield College
