Pros: salary

I have recommended for others to work at AIU and for some it has been very good. (Myself included) The work/life balance is challenging in the environment and now a change in location is prompting me to pursue other opprotunities.

Typical Day at Work
Senior Admissions Advisor (Current Employee), Chicago, ILAugust 6, 2014
A typical day at work is 100+ outbound calls reaching out to students that have been separated/withdrawn from the University for over a year.

Conduct phone interviews finding out interest, desire, motivation in obtaining college degree. Set firm expectations and deadlines.

Process reentry application, guide student through reentry process.

Heaving – more... phone an email contact, multi-tasking.

Hardest part of job is being held accountable for another person's decision to move forward with their education, or at least exploring their options.

Most enjoyable part of my job, very rewarding when you know you have helped a student make an important decision toward earning their degree. – less

Consistent work at a fast pace
Graduate Admissions Advisor (Former Employee), Beaverton, ORJuly 24, 2014
Pros: consistent work schedule and decent pay.
Cons: in essence, it was a sales job and i am not as strong at sales as i am at other skills.
The day was scheduled out for us, with particular times we were on the "incoming call Queue" to interview perspective students, then scheduled time for following up with students we have already established contact with. I learned excellent time management skills for productivity and efficiency. The management was well trained and likable as well as – more... a diverse group of co-workers. The hardest part of the job was establishing trust with perspective students. The application process was easy but there was an application fee which was usually the part of the interview that stalled most applicants. The most enjoyable part of the job was two fold; tracking the success of the students I enrolled and a positive work environment with incentives to achieve. – less
