Student Affairs Nerds.
I am a cohost of the podcast Student Affairs Nerds. We are a group of student affairs professionals, heroes to some…nerds to others, gather together to bring you a podcast designed to elevate the genius ideas, creations, and initiatives of educators across higher education that support student achievement and success. Our panel of insightful friends and guests will highlight creative pivots, best practices and, unique services that touch the lives of students and serve campuses. We hope that you will enjoy this exciting addition to the Higher Ed Geek family of Podcasts.
Pivoting Out of Edu.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the average person holds 12 jobs between the ages of 18 and 50. Educators (like us!) often enter our careers thinking we will stay in education forever – perhaps because we’re trained to think that way, or perhaps it is hard to see other pathways. Me and my colleague, Tom Studdert, found our way out of campus-based positions and are finding it to be very satisfying. In our podcast, we share the stories of other folx who have left campus-based positions in higher education and K-12. We also support and consult with individuals seeking to make a similar pivot in their careers.
