For Job Candidates

Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: Email Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: The preferred process is by email so the candidate and I have a record of the conversation Things That Impress You In A Candidate: Having the dedication to their profession to be a subject matter expert or "go-to" person as well as the ability and passion to want to pass along their knowledge and experience. At the University of Phoenix we are looking for individuals who want that challenge of preparing and mentoring current and future generations. Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: In relation to Faculty Recruiting in which I am responsible for, candidates must have at least a Masters degree or higher in their field, at least a couple years minimum of work experience in their respective field and in specific areas (such as nursing and others) a current and unrestricted license. Lastly a candidate must have "the passion" to engage and motivate participants in the learning process. Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: Again in relation to Faculty Recruiting, if a candidate does not have at least a Master's degree in their related field and/or does not have a current license (if needed) will disqualify candidates. Also since a majority of our students are Adult Learners, individuals who work full time, but want to better their lives through higher education. They must be able to teach in their free time. Most of our classes are taught one night a week, so candidates must be local to the campus (if it is a local based campus location) and have the time necessary. Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: Yes

If the stress of juggling school, work, and family is making life difficult, you are not alone. According to a recent study on college employment, 43% of the nation's full-time college undergraduates and 81% of part-time undergraduates worked while getting a degree. Not surprisingly, time shortage is one of the biggest reasons for students dropping out before completing their degree. So how do you make sure that you stay the course?

You might be tempted to use the generic "I'd like to add you to my professional network on LinkedIn" template, but beware! By not personalizing your message, you could lose a precious opportunity to network.
