New Professionals in Student Affairs: What They Didn't Teach You in Graduate School.
Recent graduates of College Student Personnel programs from five universities were surveyed on their job search process, reasons for choosing their current job, their experiences with institutional policies, and ethical and political situations they encountered as new professionals. The results indicated that between 26% and 44% of these new professionals experienced some dissatisfaction with the job search process and their current job. With attrition in the field approaching 50%, it is important for both graduate program faculty and practitioners to pay attention to these voices and take a critical look at the way entry-level professionals are educated, recruited and supervised.
