Positions In Counseling Services (PICC) was created by Dr. Larry Long (a university counseling director) in
1999 to help his colleagues find the best employment candidates. Over the past 15 years, the website
has evolved into the premier job site, only accepting position announcements for positions in college or
university counseling centers.
In 2013, Dr. Long's institution was required to re-prioritize resources and decided to no longer support
PICC. Over the next 12 months, Dr. Long selected OSPE, Olde Same Place Enterprises, and collaborated
with them to create the new website at UniversityCounselingJobs.com. OSPE is a small company by
two professionals with a combined experience of over 30 years in the IT, university, and healthcare
industries. Dr. Long continues to collaborate daily with OSPE as the website transitions.

My journey with PICC -
I created PICC: Positions in Counseling Centers in 1999 as a means to serve my peers in successfully
identifying outstanding job candidates for their university or college counseling service. Historically,
500-700 position ads were posted annually, with more than 7000 individual site visitors monthly. This
success occurred with only word-of-mouth advertising. There was no institutional or professional
association and no private funding ever associated with PICC. The cost of developing and maintaining
PICC for the past 15 years has fallen entirely upon me and my institution. It has been my honor to serve
In 2012, my institution decided that it could no longer devote resources to upgrade, update or further
develop the website. As a consequence, since March 2013, I have collaborated with a small, private,
company (OSPE) to re-develop and re-engineer the website. With my institution's blessing, PICC was
moved to another server on May 15, 2014. I am especially proud of the newly developed website
which incorporates innovative features and updates that my institution have been unable to provide for
more than 6 years.
Why I chose OSPE -
Olde Same Place Enterprises consists of an information technology university faculty member and
an IT health care professional who have more than 30 years of combined experience in website
design. I selected OSPE to take PICC to the next level because of the staff's commitment to quality
and service. The company is committed to supporting PICC so that university and college counseling
service employers may find the best qualified applicants at a minimal advertising cost. Staff are quick
to respond to emails (email@example.com) and work continually to add innovative
features to the website.
