  Job Search Best Practices 
  • How to land a job in a new location
    When moving to a new state without a new job, tap your higher-education network to introduce you to people in your location, Jen Guyer-Wood advises. Columnist Matt Krumrie in this article compiles tips from Guyer-Wood, who found new work in higher education when her husband had to relocate. She completed her LinkedIn profile and made it clear she was job searching, Krumrie writes. She also networked at professional gatherings and asked each person, "Is there anyone else you think I should talk to?" Star Tribune (Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minn.)

  • Networking heats up around campus grill
    Kettering University engineering and science students have found a way to break into networking with others by firing up a grill once a week on campus. The cookouts attract other students and faculty and have led to the group being asked to cook at various events. "We've broken away from the social-networking craze. We're out there talking to people," says Justin Arnold, a biochemistry senior and president of the Grilling Club. USA Today (2/17) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

  • N.D. lawmakers slash budget for higher-education staff
    Members of a North Dakota legislative subcommittee have denied funding for seven positions in the state's University System, reducing an original $3.2 million proposal to about $1.3 million. Chancellor Hamid Shirvani was disappointed by the move. "The lower amount they give us, or don't give us, the longer it takes to achieve our goals to create the best system of higher education," he said.

  • Faculty unions in Mich. said to mull contracts amid right-to-work law
    Labor contract extensions reportedly are being considered by some faculty unions in Michigan -- including those at Michigan State University and Lansing Community College -- to temporarily delay the effects of the state's new right-to-work law. The law goes into effect March 27 and would end the practice of requiring union dues as a condition of employment. Contract extensions now would mean unions still could collect dues.

  • Colo. considers expanding role of community colleges
    Colorado legislators are considering a bill that would allow the state's community colleges to offer some four-year degrees, mostly in technical subjects. The push for expansion is largely based on geographic reasons, as community colleges can serve regions in the state that aren't conveniently served by four-year universities.

  • What George Washington can teach leaders
    George Washington led his troops to victory against the British redcoats at Trenton, N.J., in 1777 in part by adopting a more democratic approach to leadership, Signe Spencer writes. Rather than simply issuing commands and expecting obedience, Washington sought the advice of subordinates and thereby hatched a battle plan that was more innovative and effective than anything a single general could have devised alone, Spencer writes.
