LOOKING FOR GRAD JOB HUNT BLOGGER is looking for one or two graduate students to write our weekly blog for the 2009 "Student Affairs Job Hunt." 
Interested graduate students should submit one writing sample that would be in line with what would appear on the Job Hunt Blog as opposed to simply a writing sample from a course you have taken. Send your sample to Stuart Brown at [log in to unmask] by Monday, January 19th.  The blog will begin the first week of February.

There is a small stipend and the blog will be anonymous to give students more freedom in writing about their experiences. We am looking for individuals that can write interesting, fun, enlightening, edgy, eye-opening blogs. This would take someone who is not afraid to keep a blog and who is a good, creative writer. Students can get an idea of what we am looking for by clicking on the link to our Student Affairs Blog page at and reading entries from past Student Affairs Job Hunt blogs.

Also, don't forget to read our current student affairs blogs--Learning to Fly-Season 4, The Grad School Journey Begins, and The 2008 New Professional. 


We are now accepting registrations for our 8th Annual Virtual Case Study Competition ( for Masters level students in student personnel administration, higher education, or counseling programs.   Information on registering teams, rules and prizes is available at the Virtual Case Study website. 

The registration deadline is Friday, January 23, 2009. The competition will take place from January 25 - February 13, 2009. There is no limit on the
number of teams per graduate program that can enter. We have also expanded the competition time period.  PLEASE NOTE:  This year's case study will involve the production of a video so the proper equipment needs to be secured by each team.
