I have created a video describing a way to handle complex student affairs grad student job searches. By complex, I mean job searches that have multiple competing variables, such as wanting one type of job, but being willing to settle for another, or wanting to work in one geographic area, but realizing that may not be possible. I describe a way to manage these competing priorities, especially in light of the fact that grad students are in a terminal experience and not applying for a job from a job, a situation that also contributes greatly to one’s stress.
Please let me know if you have any questions about what I have to say. All feedback is welcome as well.
