University Introduces Brand-New Career Adviser Adviser Position

HYDE PARK — UChicago will introduce a new career adviser adviser position to help its existing career advisers make stronger career-advice decisions, a University spokesperson said Monday. The adviser advisers, who will work out of Ida Noyes Hall, will look to reform the University’s career advising program by providing career advisers the same aloof, unsympathetic counsel the advisers themselves offer to students.

The counselors will also advise career advisers on the advancement of their own careers, which university officials described as “kind of a lost cause” (career adviser is nobody’s dream job) but maybe they can turn it around and find a job that makes them $50k a year instead of the $45k plus unlimited free pens they get here.”
