This is a book for any student affairs professional who wants to strategically shape his or her career path; it may be particularly helpful for people in early or mid-career, or contemplating a career, in student affairs. By engagingly offering us the fruits of the reflective and strategic approach she has used to shape her own career, and of the theoretical and practical approaches she has undertaken to map out the culture and dynamics of student affairs; and by gathering the voices of twenty five professionals who offer the insights and advice derived from their own experiences, Sonja Ardoin has created a guide for everyone in student affairs who wants to be intentional in setting the course for their professional and personal development.She begins by describing the changing and varied student populations who are the heart of this field, and outlines the typical organizational structures of student affairs, the range of functional areas, and how practice varies by size and type of institution. She highlights major trends, discusses the typical paths of entry to the profession, the expectations and realities of starting in a new position, the process of socialization, and the required skills and competencies. She devotes the core of the book to the five key elements for developing a career strategy: Lifelong Learning, Extending Your Experiences, Planning for Professional Development, Networking/Connecting, and Self-Reflection, and provides advice on the job search, from application through interview. In doing so she ranges over choices to be made about formal qualifications, and describes activities - from volunteering and committee work to conference presentations, writing and teaching - that we can use to strategically develop the proficiencies to attain our goals.

Sonja Ardoin is a learner, educator, and facilitator. She serves as the Director of Student Leadership and Engagement at the University of North Carolina Wilmington and instructs a few courses at the university. Originally from "Cajun country," Sonja began her higher education career as a first generation college student at Louisiana State University where she earned a B.S. in Secondary Education. She moved on to Florida State University in 2005 to obtain her M.S. in Higher Education and Student Affairs and, after graduation, worked there full-time as an Assistant Director for Student Activities until 2008. Sonja's second role allowed her to serve as the Class Councils Advisor for Student Activities at Texas A&M University from 2008-2010. Sonja then moved "north" to Raleigh to pursue her Ph.D. in Educational Research and Policy Analysis, which she completed in May 2013 with a dissertation entitled: Learning a Different Language: Rural Students' Comprehension of College Knowledge and University Jargon. Sonja currently volunteers with national organizations such as LeaderShape, Zeta Tau Alpha, and Lambda Chi Alpha and is an active member of NASPA and ACPA. Personally, Sonja enjoys spending time with loved ones, traveling, reading, dancing, exercising, and laughing.
