Colledge LLC
Location: (Online) Homebase: Los Angeles, California
Position: Admissions Manager
Start Date: March 8, 2021

ADMISSIONS MANAGER Job Description

Everybody’s looking for an edge in college admissions. At Colledge, we already have it, but we’re looking for more.

The premier college advisory group in the Los Angeles area needs an entrepreneurial, energetic, creative candidate for an entry-level position in college admissions consulting. This position offers great potential for growth and promotion and is perfect for someone looking to develop their career in college counseling while changing the world, one student at a time.  While the position is entry-level, experience in college admissions or college advising would be awesome. 

Colledge offers individualized, one-on-one counseling aimed at helping students and families find the right-fit colleges for them. We provide guidance on all aspects of the college admissions process, including the college list, extracurricular activities, essay work, test recommendations, college interviews, visiting colleges, and financial aid and scholarships.  The company was founded by Jenny Umhofer, who spent a decade in different highly selective college admissions offices.

The Admissions Manager will play a critical role in serving students and families by:

  • demonstrating interest in working one-on-one with high school students
  • thinking creatively about how to help and improve a growing college admissions advising company
  • bringing energy, enthusiasm, and a diligent work ethic to the job
  • working collaboratively within a team

The Admissions Manager will focus on the following areas of need:

  • Admission and Client Service: The Admissions Manager will work extensively with students and parents, advising, supporting, and yes, hand-holding. This role demands emotional intelligence, effective communications with both teens and parents, and a willingness to lean into the challenge of helping all kinds of students from all types of backgrounds with all manner of interests—artists, mathematicians, writers, scientists, gamers, procrastinators, coders, introverts, athletes, and students with learning differences. The position also requires engaging directly with college admissions offices, and learning independently about universities and college admissions trends.  The position requires compassionate, assertive communication with a diverse array of parents and students. 
  • Marketing and Administration: As a small business, Colledge depends on getting the word out, bringing clients in, and running things efficiently. The Admissions Manager will assist in operating the business—we especially value social-media savvy, presentation skills, customer service, design expertise, statistical data analysis, and proficiency with Word, Slack, PowerPoint, the Google Suite, and Excel.
  • Teamwork: What sets Colledge apart is its team approach to college admissions advice—each student has multiple Colledge professionals learning students’ passions, developing college lists, and reviewing applications and essays. This unique approach requires humility, collaboration, and an openness to working closely and positively with others.
  • Entrepreneurship: Colledge is a burgeoning business, and our team has a start-up mindset that thrives on dedication, constructively critical thinking about the company, individual investment in the business effort, and ownership of the challenge of building a small business.

Location: Los Angeles area preferred.  We are virtual, so working from home is the norm.

Salary range: $45,000 - $50,000

Benefits: Will contribute substantial monthly amount to individual medical and dental insurance plan obtained by employee. Includes three weeks paid vacation time per year, professional membership dues for relevant organizations, and travel expenses for professional development and networking.

Bonus: Meaningful, discretionary bonus may be paid at the end of the year.

Expectations: Normal work hours (on Pacific Standard Time), with occasional nights and weekends, some travel.

Application deadline is March 8th, at 2pm PST, with a start date in early April 2021. Interviews will be held virtually.

Please submit cover letter, resume, and references to [email protected] or call (626) 344-0332 to learn more.
