Careers in College and University Student Affairs.
Thomas, William G.; Permaul, Jane S.
A practical guide for those interested in beginning a career in student affairs is presented. A "systems placement process" approach was used to organize the guide, from initial interest to placement in a student affairs position. Chapters are: (1) identify student affairs fields; (2) identify jobs (friends, letters, placement offices, journal announcements, professional organization, conferences, meetings and visitations); (3) review qualifications; (4) qualified/not qualified; (5) apply for jobs (application, resume, tests, placement file, follow-up); (6) exploration (visitations, review of materials); (7) interested/not interested; (8) interviewed/not interviewed; and (9) position offered/not offered. Two chapters concerning special considerations in student affairs placement are appended: (1) career opportunities in community college student personnel, by Dale Miller; and (2) student affairs in predominantly black colleges, by Frank Austin. Also appended are a list of 71 student personnel higher education associations, with information concerning each, and a bibliography of student personnel roles--basic studies, student personnel administration, activities, admissions-registrars, athletics, career planning & placement, community services, counseling and testing, data processing, financial aids, foreign students, housing, learning skills, legal affairs, men's affairs, experiential education, ombudsman, oreientation, recreational-cultural affairs, special minority programs, student union, veteran's affairs, and women's affairs.
