The runway has been cleared, bags are neatly stowed away in overheard storage areas and there’s a pack of career services and college recruiting professionals who are ready to take flight with this blog for the 2013 – 2014 year in NACE.
At the 2013 NACE conference in Orlando, I had the pleasure of writing as a featured blogger, doing my best to bring you along with me as I attended sessions and reflected on what was learned over the course of those few days. I am happy to report that, throughout this year, I will serve as the “NACE Ambassador” as appointed by current NACE President, Dan Black (thank you, Dan), to continue that work. As part of my duties, I will be here on this blog, writing about our profession and, at times, bringing you the inside story from NACE regarding what our committees and leadership team are doing. My goal for this year is to help be a link between the membership and the volunteers and staff of NACE who work to move our profession forward.
In addition to my posts, there will be several other career services and college recruiting pros who will be adding their voice to this blog on a regular basis. With specialties in assessment, social media and student marketing, I expect this group will provide valuable insight and ideas all year long.
I invite you to join us for this year, and the best way to stay up to date with us is to “Follow” the blog to get automatic updates when a new post pops up. If you follow NACE on Twitter, you’ll also see the posts tweeted out as new content becomes available. I would also encourage you to join the National Association of Colleges & Employers group on LinkedIn, where updates will also be shared.
I’m looking forward to connecting with you more, NACE members, and to all of the discussions we’ll have on this blog. What are some things you most want to read about on the NACE blog this year?
