Summary "Jean Dowdall, extremely well-qualified and well-known in the area of higher education executive search, offers crucial advice for higher education search candidates as they move chronologically through a typical search, including pre-search considerations; making the best use of a network; preparing an application; confidentiality concerns; interviews; considering an offer; and making the transition to the new position. When the focus shifts to search committees, again moving chronologically through the search process, Dowdall explores subjects such as understanding the position; how search committees are formed; factors involved in carrying out the search, whether with, or without, a consultant; and the transition to the new leadership from the institutional perspective."--BOOK JACKET
