    How do you wish to impact the lives of others?

    A student’s education is the foundation of the rest of their life: thus, their journey into higher education is one of the most influential factors in their development. We at Cardinal Education recognize this, and thus provide the premier set of services in our industry, aimed at pushing students to reach for their dream schools by helping them evolve and mature as both applicants and academics.

    Join us in our quest! We seek eager, dedicated part-time Associate College Admissions Consultants to join our rapidly-growing team. We seek Consultants in cities across the Bay Area, from Los Altos to Hillsborough.

    Today, college admissions officers look at all sides of applicants when determining whether they’ll be asked to join the college’s community. Thus, Associate College Admissions Consultants (ACACs) direct students on all the application details critical to maximizing chances of admission. ACACs blend personalization, depth, and persistence in order to yield acceptances from the perfect fit colleges for each student.

    ACACs guide students toward success on all things college admissions, most often working with students on their college admissions essays (highly exceptional writing, editing, and English language skills are necessary). Since essays are the most important opportunity for students to show colleges exactly what makes them human, ACACs are trained as investigators of students’ lives and histories: we guide our students through rigorous, introspective, enlightening journeys in order to help them pinpoint and express their passions, tastes, experiences, philosophies, and unique, vibrant personalities. ACACs also provide families with informed recommendations to reach their goals by working closely with the directors of Cardinal Education and current clientele to execute specialized college admissions plans.

    Since 2004, Cardinal Education’s unique approach has been compelled by one motivation: we genuinely care about your child’s life journey. Thus, ACACs continue to support families even after applications are sent out. We at Cardinal Education know that the endgame of the application process is not simply sending students to college, but ensuring they thrive as an adult far beyond the walls of higher education. We ask not: what can college do for a child’s academics? We ask: what can college do for a child’s life?

    Cardinal Education also cultivates a supportive workplace and offer extensive training for all Consultants. We’re also committed to providing unprecedented levels of professional support, and offer highly competitive pay while crafting a whimsical yet professional company culture unlike any other, centered around genuine camaraderie and consistent, profound teamwork.

    At Cardinal Education, we don’t just change students’ lives; we change our own lives, too. Grow with us -- apply today!

    IMPORTANT NOTE: We are happy to work with individuals who currently tutor with other organizations or independently. You do NOT need to sign an exclusivity contract to work with us.

    The ideal ACAC possesses:
    -great communication and people skills;
    -a degree from a top-50 university;
    -a genuine interest in building students' confidence;
    -the desire to make a difference in the lives of children;
