Recruitment Season

Recruitment season has begun!  I adore recruitment!  I love the preparation, the reading of the resumes, the nervousness/excitement in the air,  the creation of ridiculous amounts of “flair” and especially…going to the conferences.  This is our 5th year recruiting at The Placement Exchange.  It makes sense because it’s in Phoenix which is geographically close and we feel that many of the candidates who will be interested in Southern California will most likely be utilizing this conference.   I love going to conference every year!  It’s so rejuvenating to see all my colleagues and mentors from grad school and my live-in staff days.

The recruitment team this year is myself and two SUPER SPIRITED Residence Life Coordinators, Xander and Mario.  This week we are ordering the rest of our recruitment “flair” and putting the final touches on the Professional Staff info on the University Housing Services website.   Can’t wait to see the final products!

What are you doing to prepare for recruitment season?


80 Degrees

The weather has been beautiful this week.  Where else but in Southern California do you get temperatures in the high 70s and low 80s in the middle of JANUARY?  It was perfect weather for the 2012 Lunar New Year Celebration on campus yesterday!

Rumor has it, the weather is going to be in the 80s on Saturday and Sunday too!
