An Online Resource for All Those Committed to Pursuing Careers in Higher Education
HigherEdCareerCoach.com is an online resource for all those committed to pursuing careers in higher education. Here, you will find articles from other educators, hiring managers, and from career coaches and experts, written from the unique points of view their experiences working in higher education and with other successful educators have provided them.
You will find career strategies here, as you would on many jobsites. But they won’t be written in a generic fashion. You will be able to use the advice you find here to move forward in your career.
Hiring processes in academia are very different beasts than those in the corporate arena. Articles here acknowledge the difference.
