NASPA Careers:

With more demands and dwindling resources, Mid-level professionals must find ways to use their networks to succeed. Wearing many hats and managing multiple responsibilities limits time for professional association engagement, but at no other time is it as important. From institutes helping you decide your next steps to leadership within Knowledge Communities, NASPA helps illuminate your next steps.

  • Reestablishing and understanding your personal brand as a new professional

    Don’t get me wrong, I have a good job that allows me to work with students, but because of my geographical limitations, I applied for almost any job that would consider me. Now, eight months into my position, I have had some time to reflect on my experience as a professional and devote time to reestablishing and understanding my professional brand. After reflecting, I have some tips and thoughts about how to maintain who you are and the brand you offer.

  • Going to the Balcony: Centering Institutional Work around Community Goals

    Like many institutions, the work of community engagement at Northeastern University has expanded rapidly in recent years, and the formation of this board was motivated by the desire to have this growth be as responsive as possible to the communities within which we live, study, and work. City and Community Affairs (which encompasses the Center of Community Service, Northeastern Crossing, and the Youth Development Initiative Project) facilitates the co-creation of reciprocal partnerships and relationships between the on-campus community of students, faculty, and staff, and the off-campus community of neighborhood organizations and area residents. Our collaborative engagements are intentionally developed to be mutually respectful, socially and ethically responsive, strategic, and purposeful. Together our work serves to create a just, equitable, and sustainable future for our interconnected local, regional, and global societies.

The answers to these questions, however, often are only found useful in the execution of future programs and that is only if recalled from memory often enough.
