JOB ALERT: I’m hiring! GREAT opportunity to join an awesome organization.

now hiringThere are three fantastic opportunities for communication professionals to join my team at Brandman University, part of the Chapman University System in Irvine, California. Brandman is a private, non-profit institution where I was recently appointed Vice Chancellor of Communications and Chief Communications Officer. Brandman serves some 12,000 working adult and military students across the country with 26 campus locations in California and Washington, and nationally through the online campus. In addition to competitive salaries, the benefits at Brandman are phenomenal, including a generous paid holiday schedule, retirement planning & medical benefits – but perhaps most important is the tuition waiver for employees: you could earn a graduate degree while working full time at almost no cost! WOW!

These new positions are a fantastic opportunity to join an energetic, productive team serving a thriving university community. To be successful on my team you will need to be an enthusiastic professional that is passionate about the work we do, no matter what the role or assignment. My focus as the department head is to create a collaborative environment that nurtures creativity, encourages innovation and bold ideas, and challenges the team to think outside the box. If you are lazy or satisfied simply by maintaining the status quo, this is not the place for you.
