a message from the president
I hope everyone is having an excellent year thus far! As the leaves change and the cool air starts to move in, on campus recruitment is in full swing and the recruiting miles are starting to accumulate. In the midst of what is certainly a busy time for everyone, do not forget to feed your professional development appetite with all that EACE has to offer as it celebrates its 20th year!
First, keep in mind that a great way to stay current in the field and expand your existing knowledge base is to check out EACE’s Trending Blog, which is released every Tuesday. Also, Twitter Chats, are in full swing. These chats, which take place from Noon-1:00pm on the second Tuesday of each month, afford members the opportunity to connect on a variety of current topics relevant to the career services and recruiting landscapes. Additionally, what has become one of EACE’s staple programs, Road Trips to the Real World, is as vibrant as ever. With 40 great employer sites confirmed, these events always serve as a great vehicle for connecting students and employers. Finally, it is never too early to start planning for EACE’s annual conference. The 2017 conference will be held in Niagara Falls, NY from June 21st through 23rd. The conference theme is: “Journey to the Falls: Cheers to 20 Years!”. Proposals are currently being accepted, so click here if you are interested in presenting at what will be a fantastic celebration of EACE’s 20 years as the leading regional organization for career counseling and recruitment professionals.
Moving forward, EACE has some exciting webinar and drive-in events in the works. Please be sure to check the calendar to remain current as to what events and programs are forthcoming. Best of luck with the remainder of the year!
