According to last month’s HigherEdJobs report, “the number of jobs in higher education grew 2.1% during the second quarter of 2012, continuing to outpace growth of all U.S. jobs, which were up 1.4%.”
Often the first few months at a new job provide the freshest perspectives. It’s acceptable to question business practices and suggest different approaches. When a new colleague joins the team, he or she can be a rare resource for providing honest feedback.
If this tends to be true at the organizational level, what about at a more macro level? What can we all learn from the newest higher ed employees?
As the new academic year is underway, we want to hear from those newest to higher ed. To that end, if you have been in higher ed for less than 1 year, you’re invited to complete this short online survey. We’ll report the results without attribution.
We’re interested in why you chose to work in higher ed and what you have found most surprising so far.
I look forward to sharing the results!
