  Job Search Best Practices 
 
  • Why you should make it your job to find a job
    Treat your job search as a job to increase efficiency and productivity, career coach Arnie Fertig writes in this blog post. Give top priority to networking and preparing for interviews and organize your desk and your computer desktop to make searching for items more efficient. "If your job hunt consumes every waking moment, it is time to put it into perspective and more effectively utilize your time and energy," Fertig advises.

  • The importance of a positive online image
    Developing a positive online presence may be key to landing a new job, as more companies are reportedly making first contact with prospects online. Job seekers need a strong online portfolio, but they also must pay attention to in-person networking and seek out hiring managers for informational interviews, experts say. "Online profiles don't get hired, people do -- the key is making it easy for a company that discovers you online to connect with you in person," said Mark Phillips, managing director of Hire Education.

  • Tribal schools may cut faculty, classes under sequestration
    Tribal colleges and universities may have to cut classes and faculty if the federal budget cuts, known as sequestration, are not resolved before July 1, some advocates and administrators say. Budget cuts could total $85 million for the schools that rely on the federal Tribally Controlled Community College Assistance Act.

  Higher Ed in the News 
 
  • Public colleges and universities spending less on students
    Per-pupil spending at public colleges and universities has dropped to a 25-year low, according to a new report by the State Higher Education Executive Officers. State and local funds for higher education dropped 7% last year and enrollment has fallen slightly overall. That means schools are spending an average of $5,896 per pupil, with students shouldering more of the cost. "Students are paying more, while public institutions are receiving substantially less money to educate them," said SHEEO President Paul Lingenfelter.
