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.
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 2017-18 academic year.
College Essay Coaches correspond with students via phone, email, and/or video chat (e.g. Skype, Google Hangout, 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.
The ideal candidate will possess a college admissions and/or college counseling background, as well as prior essay tutoring/coaching experience.
College Essay Coaches are paid per hour and are responsible for all of the student’s application/admission essays. Rates for the 2017-18 admission cycle are currently set at $50/hour. Typically, our Essay Coaches work with approximately 5 students, occasionally more or less, depending upon their availability and the demand for our services.
