Website Collegewise

  • Are you a former admissions officer or a current school or CBO counselor looking to add part-time work to your plate?
  • Do you believe the college admissions process should be an exciting journey for families, not an anxiety-inducing rite of passage?
  • Are you looking for the training, resources, and support to do the very best college admissions counseling of your career?

Collegewise is looking for part-time college counselors with experience in admissions or student counseling to join us. We’re open to applicants in any location, but candidates must be available to work with students in the Pacific time zone (student meetings typically occur between 3-8pm PST during weekdays) and/or on weekends.

Who We Are
Collegewise is a college counseling and test prep company that guides high school students through the college admissions process. Since 1999, we’ve helped more than 25,000 “A” students, “C” students, and everyone in between apply and get accepted to schools—sometimes famous, often not—that they’re excited to attend. And we do it all with just the right mix of advice, encouragement, and occasional cheerleading to ensure their college admissions process goes smoothly and thoughtfully. We also speak in public, write, and continuously look for ways to spread relevant college planning information to anyone who needs it—whether or not they join our programs.

We’ve built our business with counselors who work with us full-time. But we’ve also had recent success employing former admissions officers and school counselors whose work and life circumstances have led them to seek part-time work. And we’d like to repeat more of that success.

What’s the Job?
As a part-time Collegewise counselor, you’ll work with a small caseload, comprised mostly of junior and senior students, meeting virtually (via Zoom) one-on-one to help them find and apply to the right colleges for them. The number of hours you’ll work per week will depend on the number of students you choose to take on.

Every college counselor who joins us completes an initial paid 40-hour training, followed by mentoring, a supportive hive of over 60 fellow counselors, access to over ten years of student admissions results to aid you in your work, proprietary software to track your students’ progress, and ongoing professional development like our College Counseling Master Class. We think this commitment to finding, training, and developing the very best college counselors shows in our work. We’ve received hundreds (and hundreds) of glowing testimonials from families. And even our most veteran counselors don’t coast on experience. We all want to keep getting better all the time.

We’re not looking for people who equate part-time hours with part-time effort. This is less about the number of hours you work and more about the heart you bring to that work. And that engagement will go both ways. You’ll have a dedicated manager who’s committed to your success. You’ll be treated like a valuable addition to our team, you’ll be invited to our company holiday party, and you’ll be considered for some of our most iconic annual awards. In fact, some of our most indispensable colleagues are part-timers who have found their place here and now thrive doing their very best work.

You’ll also work hard, often in the evenings and on weekends when students are available. But you’ll be helping kids and parents, working with smart, passionate coworkers, and doing it all at an organization that has absolutely no reverence for U.S. News & World Report college rankings.
