“Job Fit” is often a term used in search processes that can be used as a tool for exclusion, consciously and unconsciously. “Job Fit” can be a euphemism and code word for stereotypes and assumptions about others and help keep our individual and organizational fears, values, and culture free from critical examination.

On this episode of Student Affairs Live, host Keith Edwards speaks with Brian Reece, Vu Tran, Elliott Devore, and Gabby Porcaro, editors the book Debunking the Myth of Job Fit in Student Affairs and Higher Education. This episode will critically examine the idea of “job fit” and explore legal, ethical, and employment concerns related to race, class, gender, sexual orientation, and more.
