William (Wil) Jones is currently the Director of Operations & Strategic Initiatives at the Rutgers University Career Services office. He provides senior executive leadership for the areas of public relations, marketing, information technology, assessment, and special initiatives. Prior to working at Rutgers, Wil was an Associate Director of the University Career Center & The President’s Promise at the University of Maryland where he oversaw the Employer Relations Team, Public Relations & Marketing Team, and the Information Technologies Team.

In 2012, the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) acknowledged Wil’s contribution to the field with the 2012 Rising Star Award. This national award recognizes one individual each year who has demonstrated strong leadership and contributions to the career services profession and NACE organization. Wil was also awarded NACE’s 2010 Innovation Award for creating the Marketing, Assessment, & Programs (MAP) database and the American College Personnel Association’s 2009 Innovation Award for his work with the Commission for Career Development. Additionally, in 2008 he was recognized for his Outstanding Service to the Division of Student Affairs at the University of Maryland.

Wil is a "Terp for Life." He earned his Master of Education from the College Student Personnel program at the University of Maryland in 2008. His research interests focused on the career decision-making self-efficacy of student leaders. He also received his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Maryland in Government & Politics. It was at this stage in his academic career that he discovered NASPA through the Undergraduate Fellows program. During the NASPA experience, it finally clicked for Wil that the professionals he crossed paths with as a student, actually got paid for doing the work that they loved.

In his free time he enjoys movies, Broadway shows, food with friends, and anything related to Apple products. Read Less
