For most young students, the hardest part of the college admissions process was finding the right school. The population rise for college-going students has made it fiercely competitive when it comes to gaining entry to the college of your choice. There are simply too few places for too many applicants. This is more so for elite universities.
Although some high schools have respectable advising departments, many are just overwhelmed and understaffed. If you enjoy research and documentation, this business could prove to be the right money maker for you. As a College Admissions Counselor, you will engage in problem solving for prospective college students and their families, tackle emotional issues and access information needed to apply to colleges worldwide. Your involvement starts as early as helping to steer students during their high school days to the right academic, extracurricular and athletic choices that will substantially increase their chances of being admitted to the college(s) of their choice. You will help them work through the tons of paperwork to apply for admission as well as financial aid, and they make sure the forms are submitted on time. You also specialize in helping at-risk students, learning-disabled students and other nontraditional students achieve their highest potential.
Having years of experience in the education industry will help you significantly because you will need to know the ins and outs of college application. You will need to always be up-to-date with your information, especially for entrance tests and application procedures. Every successful applicant is a satisfied customer who will eventually feed your business with referrals. It’s a great way to help young people get into their dream college while making loads of money for yourself.
