Admissions Counselor Jobs

Admissions Counselor Overview


For individuals who enjoy helping people find their educational niche, Admissions Counselor jobs are an ideal occupation. Admissions Counselors play a critical role in providing individuals with valuable information to help them determine the educational path that will best support their long-term career goals. These professionals work in post-secondary institutions including junior colleges as well as public and private universities. Many assist individuals in overcoming challenges such as working while obtaining a degree, obtaining a degree with children in the home or attending school with a limited income. The hours are typically normal business hours, and telecommuting opportunities are available with some distance learning programs. Similar education jobs include positions such as admissions director.

Admissions Counselor Educational Requirements


For most Admissions Counselor jobs, a bachelor's degree is the minimum requirement. In some instances, an equivalent amount of education and on-the-job training can be substituted. Effective Admissions Counselors are organized individuals with extraordinary people skills and the ability to communicate clearly and effectively build relationships. A background in customer service, a high comfort level during public speaking engagements and a focus on teamwork are helpful traits for anyone looking to pursue this career path.

Admissions Counselors Job Outlook


According to statistics, it is estimated that the number of jobs in this field will increase in the coming years, and the projected growth is approximately 19 percent from 2010 to 2020. This growth will be due, in large part, to the increased enrollment in post-secondary programs across the United States as employers in various fields continue to increase requirements regarding two- and four-year degrees.

Admissions Counselors Salary

The median salary for Admission Counselor positions across the United States is approximately $34,000. Individuals working in larger universities or in supervisory roles within an admissions department can typically expect a higher rate of pay than counselors at small, regional colleges.
