Edward will serve as the new resident career services specialist for our college. His office is on the first floor and he can help you with resumes and career advice.
Edward L. Heard Jr. (B.S., Th.M., M.A., Psy.D.) is a counselor who enjoys helping students discover and clarify their career paths (for some, a “life calling”). He attends to students’ holistic needs, while addressing their immediate concerns and changing perspectives. Dr. Heard’s interpersonal, collaborative approach encourages students to increase self-awareness, develop into thoughtful professionals, and sharpen their skills for use in an increasingly complex world.
Before Dr. Heard joined the Career Services staff, he served as a clinician at NIU’s Counseling and Student Development Center. He brings several other rich experiences to his current position, having worked in major metropolitan newspaper, ministry, non-profit, community, hospital, and higher education settings. Dr. Heard is an alumnus of the University of Maryland College Park, Dallas Theological Seminary, and Wheaton College, earning degrees in journalism, theology, and clinical psychology.
