    Each of the five ACES regions nominate one student to serve as the ACES Graduate Student Representative (GSR). From these five nominations, the ACES Governing Council will choose one student to serve in this position. This is a three year serviced position: designee, current, and past GSR.

    SACES is currently accepting applications from doctoral students who are early in their academic program (a graduate student serving as a GSR must hold doctoral student/doctoral candidate status for at least 2 years of their service and only the final year could be served as a new faculty member or supervisor) to be the SACES nominee. To apply, please email the following materials to Melanie Iarussi at miarussi@auburn.edu:

    • A cover letter describing your educational and other relevant experiences to the position, including your previous and/or current involvement with ACES and SACES.
    • A current CV
    • Your answer to this question (posed by ACES): "Suppose you were selected for the GSR position, what would be different in a year service position that would show it was useful, that you were the right person to apply, and that ACES was right to have selected you?"

    Applications are due December 15, 2016

    The SACES Career Connection will take place at the SACES Conference in New Orleans on Friday, October 7 from 8am-5pm and Saturday, October 8 from 8am-2pm. SACES will have a direct link (coming soon) for university employers who have faculty positions available and job seekers, which will direct each interested party to the SACES webpage (www.saces.org) to upload their materials to participate in the SACES Career Connection. 

    To prepare for the SACES Career Connection, employers will be given the opportunity to post their open positions in a virtual portal that will allow prospective job seekers an opportunity to learn about positions before the conference.

    For job seekers, candidates will upload their CVs so that employers may review their credentials ahead of the conference and potentially contact them for a meeting at the conference.

    The links to the employer and job seeker portals will be launching soon on the SACES website. Questions about the Career Connection should be addressed to Margaux Brown and Marcela Kepic at SACEScareerconnection2016@gmail.com.

    In an effort to continue meeting the needs of counselor educators and supervisors, after the end of the Career Connection at the SACES Conference the SACES LinkedIn group (you can request access to the SACES LinkedIn page by clicking here: https://www.linkedin.com/groups/4544312) will start focusing on promoting employment opportunities and relevant materials for job success.
