Professional development is critical to helping advisers learn best practices for working with students, gain knowledge about advising, and reflect on their own practices. However, as advisers we are often limited by time, budgets, or distance. As a result, it is important to share professional presentations and other resources. This site is dedicated to posting professional presentations that can be shared with other advising professionals. In addition to these pages, we encourage you to explore the rest of the WNY Advising website for other presentations, conferences, professional development resources, and ways to use social media to enhance your own professional development.

Careers in Advising & Student Affairs
Without realizing it, you may have developed skills related to careers in higher education and student affairs. As a college student your involvement in academic and social activities on campus as well as experiences as club leaders, RAs, campus government representatives, orientation leaders, research assistants, or work-study students all foster skills relevant to higher education and student affairs. The following resources can help you to explore careers in advising, student affairs, and higher education. Graduate schools that offer a higher education or student affairs programs can help you to gain such necessary skills.
Both ACPA and NASPA provide valuable information about student affairs careers including articles about the field, graduate school preparation and graduate program overviews. NACADA provides similar information focused on academic advising. The CAS Standards provide a set of guidelines and standards for the programs.
If you are considering a job in higher education, it is important to understand what might be required for certain positions. Even if you might not be qualified for a position, the job descriptions can be useful in helping you to determine what skills, experiences, and educational requirements you need to develop.
