Financial Aid Professionals: What Would You Like to Read About on Jim’s Blog?

January 19, 2012

As the audience of Jim’s Blog, we want to hear from you. Our goal is to provide you the information needed to help you perform your job, assist your students, and sometimes give you a little something extra to make you smile or laugh. What do you want to read about?  

We have a few new series rolling out for 2012. Be on the lookout for those!  Some topics we typically blog about are:

  • Financial Literacy
  • Training
  • Financial Aid Best Practices
  • Conferences
  • Profiles in the Financial Aid Profession
  • FAQs
  • Changes at Nelnet
  • People at Nelnet

Do you have a favorite series of Jim’s Blog that you follow? What else would you like us to blog about? Do you have a co-worker you think deserves being recognized? Have you implemented a program on your campus that is successful? Would others benefit from your knowledge or something your office has done? It could even be something not directly related to financial aid. Maybe professional development, community involvement, etc.

If you have an idea for a blog series, please share that with us by Friday, February 3rd. You may comment here on this blog post or you may contact your Regional Director.  Once we get ideas, we will take a poll. The series that receives the most votes will be a regular series on Jim’s Blog for 2012, and the person who submits the winning idea will be featured.  We look forward to hearing from you!

Jodi Long Miller, Western Regional Director (CA) & Social Media Strategist

    I would like to see how other colleges are getting out letters to students who are in danger of going delinquent on their school loans. I would like to see default maangement issues, where to go to get list of students, process, etc.

    Thanks!

    I would love to see some grad school targeted blog posts. How do you counsel students who are already in debt on taking out more?!
