Why Work for College Transitions?

College Transitions is an independent consulting firm committed to guiding students to and through higher education.

We believe that the college admissions process is not an end, but a means to self-discovery, growth, and fulfillment. We aim to bring perspective (and some sanity) to college planning and we strive to provide our students with the comprehensive, data-driven advice they need to enroll and succeed at good-fit colleges and universities.

Job Listings

College Transitions is seeking to hire several part-time College Counselors to serve students and families in a remote capacity. We are especially interested in qualified individuals with experience working in selective college admission offices.

Essential Duties:

College Counselors guide 9th-to-12th grade students through the entire college admissions process, providing support on the following tasks:

  • High school course planning
  • Extracurricular planning/resume development
  • Preparing for college interviews
  • College list development
  • Developing a college application calendar/timeline
  • Completing/reviewing applications

In addition to offering support with the above, College Counselors meet with students via video chat (e.g.,Zoom) to address questions and discuss application strategies.

Background:

Ideally, competitive candidates will have prior experience offering individual college guidance to high school and/or college students, as either a college admission or school-based counselor. Experience working at a selective college is preferred.

We believe this position could be ideal for former admission professionals who love their full-time job but who are looking to supplement their income through part-time work.

Education:

Master’s or higher is preferred; however, admission professionals with only a bachelor’s degree will definitely be considered.

Duties:

College Counselors should:

  • Be able to devote 5 hours per week to their students.
  • Be comfortable working with students and families in a remote capacity, most often through video chat and email.
  • Be able to answer emails and questions within 24 hours.
  • Be able to review and provide feedback on college applications within 48 hours.
  • Be willing to adhere to the Principles of Good Practice as outlined by the NACAC.

Currently, College Transitions is seeking to hire several remote, part-time College Essay Coaches to guide our students through the college essay writing process for the 2024-25 academic year.

Essential Duties:

College Essay Coaches correspond with students via phone, email, and/or video chat (e.g.,

Zoom, Google Hangouts, FaceTime, etc.), while providing suggestions and feedback for each of their college application/admission essays. Essay Coaches are assigned to individual students (not individual essays) and are responsible for helping them draft authentic and well-written responses that reflect what they can contribute to their prospective schools.

Background:

The ideal candidate will possess a college admissions and/or college counseling background, as well as prior essay tutoring/coaching experience.

Requirements:

College Essay Coaches must:

  • Be able to provide approximately 10-15 hours of essay coaching to each assigned student over the course of the admissions cycle.
  • Be comfortable working with students and families in a remote capacity, and have access to a video chat platform.
  • Be able to provide thorough feedback within 48 hours of receiving an essay, including and especially during the height of the college admission cycle (October-January).
  • Be willing to adhere to the Principles of Good Practice as outlined by the National Association for College Admission Counseling.
  • Be willing to commit to a full admissions cycle (May 2024-March 2025).
  • Hold a Bachelor’s degree or higher.

Compensation:

College Essay Coaches are paid per hour and are responsible for providing coaching support for all of the student’s application/admission essays. Typically, our Essay Coaches work with approximately 3-5 students, occasionally more or less, depending upon their availability and the demand for our services.
