About Me

Hello! My name is Jillian and I want to thank you for checking out my blog!

I work in higher education recruitment and focus specifically on multicultural recruitment for a private, liberal arts college in Minnesota.  Go ahead, ask the question–why would a middle-class white girl from Southern Minnesota want to work in multicultural recruitment?

I can’t really pinpoint an exact time, person or event that peaked my interest in this field, but I have always been passionate about educational equality and found that my strengths aligned well with Admission work.  I’ve been at it for six years and cannot imagine doing anything different–I love my job, what I do, and who I work for.

I completed my undergraduate degree in Vocal Music Performance from Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minnesota and my M.Ed in Educational Leadership from the University of Minnesota, Duluth. I definitely consider myself a life-long learner and I’m always seeking out opportunities to discover new things.

Outside of work, I’m an avid reader (I love my Barnes & Noble nook!), crafter (card making, knitting, cross-stitching, etc.) and tweeter (follow me at @jhiscock).

    Maybe it was your multicultural roommate in college that sparked your interest in multicultural recruitment? 🙂 Great first blog post. Although I’ve never been able to get myself to start one, I enjoy reading what my friends have to say. I look forward to the next one!
