Budgetary pressures, an increase in first-generation college students and demands for strong academic programs has amplified the role of admissions counselors. If you’re an admissions counselor, you’ve become a useful resource to students beyond editing essays and helping with paperwork.
Whether you’re working at the high school or college level, you have a wide variety of responsibilities. At the high school level, you’re helping students apply to the colleges, universities or technical schools of their choice. At the college level, you’re involved in recruitment events to promote your school and informational sessions.
