Hello OPE Employers and Candidates!

The Department of Residence Life at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh is pleased to announce that we will be hosting the 42nd annual Oshkosh Placement Exchange. We have been privileged to host OPE for over four decades in serving the field of student affairs and the candidates and employers who have placed their trust in us.

This year, for the first time in our history, we will be hosting a “listings only” placement exchange. In this format, employers will have the opportunity to register as they have in the past in order to list employment positions for which they are recruiting job seeking candidates. Candidates will have the opportunity to register as they have in the past in order to showcase themselves and seek wonderful employment opportunities. There will be no in person exchange or virtual exchange provided. We will essentially serve as the clearinghouse for employers and candidates to connect, contact and communicate with one another.

Additionally, in this format, staff members within the Oshkosh Placement Exchange planning, implementation and execution team will continue to serve as resources who can be contacted via email and phone. Active promotion of job opportunities will continue to take place and the history, knowledge, experience, and expertise of the Oshkosh Placement Exchange staff will provide ongoing support to candidates and employers.

Throughout our long history, OPE has strived to provide financial support to candidates who attend our exchange. We have provided significant scholarship/travel grants for the past decade, and in doing so have demonstrated significant support to the field of student affairs. As we strive to continue this approach, all candidates who register with the Oshkosh Placement Exchange 2021 will be able to do so at no cost. Likewise, throughout our history, we have dedicated ourselves to being a cost-effective placement exchange for employers. To that end, all employers who register with the Oshkosh Placement Exchange 2021 will pay a flat fee of $100.00 will be able to list as many positions as are desired.

Registration for the Oshkosh Placement Exchange will open on Tuesday, December 15th at 8:00AM CDT. In order to register, please visit our website at and click the “Register” option in the upper right corner. After registration, candidates will have immediate access to their account by receiving an email with their login credentials. Employers will be instructed to make the online payment of $100.00. After that payment is made, employers’ main contact will receive an email confirmation with login credentials, which has been the process in years prior.

Once candidates and employers are registered, they can begin planning interviews based on their own availability. The interviews will not be scheduled through your registered OPE account, but rather via the employers’ and candidates’ own calendars.

Please feel free to reach out to our team if you have any questions. The best way to contact our team is via email at You can also call our office at 920-424-3226.
