Did we all know it is October already? Crazy how time flies when you are having fun at work, am I right? Well, I am super excited for October because it is Careers in Student Affairs Month! I love celebrating our career field everyday, but when October comes around, I go all out. If we remember from last year, I did a fun social media campaign highlighting different aspects of student affairs Monday through Thursday and took Fridays off (work/life balance, ya know?). I plan on doing the same this year as well, with a few adjustments.
Mondays I will continue with #MentorMonday because we always need to love on our mentors.
I also just enjoy being able to highlight the amazing people in our world who have had a huge impact on me.
Tuesdays will also continue to be #TheoristTuesday.
Theories are awesome and they tend to be the bread and butter of our careers. I have learned of some really cool new theorists that I have found that I love, so be sure to check out my Twitter for who I highlight this year.
Wednesdays will be changing to be #TakeAMinuteWed.
What’s going to be fun about this one is I will highlight times when I take a minute to do something either for my personal well-being or for a student. So, similar to #TakeAMomentThursday last year, but including more than just highlighting student interactions and moving it to Wednesdays.
Thursdays will be a brand new category!
Normally, I don’t do throwbacks. But this year, I will be throwing it back to fun times within my student affairs upbringing with #ThrowbackSAThursday.
I have been waiting for October to come around so that I can start sharing more about our careers! I want to know what other people are doing, so shoot me a tweet and let me know! Also, feel free to celebrate with me by using these same hashtags or just follow me and see what I am posting! Happy Careers in Student Affairs Month everyone!
