You Can, Indeed, Be The Next Penn State President

Looking for summer employment? Or perhaps an on-campus job in the fall?

Well, the “Craigslist of employment” meta search engine Indeed.com has a new posting for a job opening in State College, and it comes with a nice salary (and full benefits).

Right below “Garment Sorter” and right above “Part-time Dishwasher” sits “President – Penn State University.” Penn State “invites applications and nominations for the position of President,” and is seeking a “collegial, accessible, and consultative leader with a collaborative and transparent leadership style and unquestionable integrity.”

The post offers distinct facts about Penn State’s academic and nation-wide successes and ends with contact information for Jackie Mildner, part of the Penn State-contracted executive search firm Isaacson, Mildner.

The team states they are looking for someone who can “affirm [the school’s] core commitment to integrity and to academic distinction.” No doubt that a plethora of moral-based academics are surfing Indeed.com for a job offer like this, and not just kids looking to freelance history papers.

Perhaps it’s telling that I stumbled upon this ad while looking for a possible suitor for my OWN summer job. Maybe I’ll send in my resume?

Penn State hopes to name a president by early 2014 to replace President Rodney Erickson, who plans to retire in June 2014.
