About UniversityCounselingJobs.com

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. 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.

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 (support@universitycounselingjobs.com) and work continually to add innovative features to the website.

My journey with University Counseling Jobs -
I have consulted in I.S. since the late 1980s (ran my first web server in 1992) and have been acquainted with Dr. Long since the mid ‘90s when I helped him in a very limited way with some design issues when he first started PICC. When he was reluctantly deciding to give up his sole stewardship of the PICC system I was honored that he reached out to me and had the confidence that my company would be a good new home for PICC.

My journey with University Counseling Jobs -
I wrote every line of custom code for University Counseling Jobs. When Vance introduced me to Larry in 2013, the three of us immediately knew there was an opportunity to extend Larry's great work at PICC into something that could service the counseling service community even better.

With Larry's guidance, we've been able to re-engineer PICC into something that is more flexible and takes advantage of great social media (like Twitter). We've done this without losing focus on what is most important: identifying outstanding job candidates for university and college counseling services.

We are all passionate about continuously improving the service with great, stable technology. We are committed to providing easy-to-access "real human being" support. We win only when we help you connect with the best possible job candidates.
