Career Link

We are so glad you found the 2019 ACES Career Link part of the website. We want to take a minute to tell you about what we have planned this year. The Career Link is a committee of volunteers within Counselor Education that want to help you in your job search at the ACES Conference.

1. You can submit both vitas and job posts to the Career Link email at

Job seekers posting a vita:

Please make sure this document is in PDF format and no more than 3-pages long. Denote in the email if you have a specialization (ie: CMHC, Couple and Family, School, or General) as we may have specific folders. When sending your vita, please name your document LastNameFirstInitial.PDF

To keep this process as confidential as possible, the digital database containing all of the vitas will be kept under password. The only people who will have access to the electronic vita database are those employers who have submitted an open position. All universities who have open positions will have access to all submitted vitas. If you are needing a higher level of confidentiality, we strongly recommend you contact the employer directly and do not use the Career Link.

You can view the job postings at any time on the website which will be updated frequently. Due to various restraints, the website is the only format in which vitas will be shared by the Career Link. There will not be a place to share your vita through the Career Link at the ACES Conference so we suggest you bring hard copies to distribute on your own.

Employers posting a position:

Please make sure this document is in PDF format. When submitting your job post, please name your document UniversityName.PDF

Once you have submitted an open position, we will send you the password information on how to access the digital database to access the vitas.

We will provide you with a link to where these secure folders in mid-September.

THE LAST DAY TO SUBMIT A JOB POST OR A VITA TO THE CAREER LINK IS FRIDAY October 1st, 2019. Anything submitted after that date will not be added to the website. In addition, we will only take one revision to your initial submission (vita and job post). Please submit those with the document name as: LastNameFirstInitial2.PDF or UniversityName2.PDF.

2. University Job Talks (UJT) are an opportunity for employers to discuss their position with applicants. This is not a time for interviews. Employers who have submitted a job will have the opportunity to select a 30-minute time slot to discuss their job with conference attendees interested in the position. Only one university will be assigned to each time slot. Employers will be sent a link to sign-up for these closer to the conference. There are 20 sign-up times for UJT’s—we typically have many more positions then this, so we encourage employers who have submitted job postings to look for this sign-up in mid-to the end of September.

There will be a list of UJT’s sent to those who have submitted their vitas after the list has been compiled (end of Sept.). This list will also be posted on CESNET and in the electronic program in case of last-minute changes. Attendance at the UJT’s will have space limitations, please come early to ensure a seat. There is no pre-sign up for these sessions.

3. Career Link focused presentations:
For the second time, Career Link related topics were an option in proposal submission for the ACES Conference. We had an overwhelming response. These programs are specifically designed developmentally for those who are or will be looking for jobs within Counselor Education and Supervision as well as more advanced skills.

They are scheduled throughout the conference and will be listed on the website as well as the conference program.

We are looking forward to seeing everyone at ACES!
