I did what I had to do when it comes to working at EDMC. I was attracted to the idea of helping people earn a college degree, I thought it would give me the experience needed to one day work for a quality school in their admissions department to help students enroll in school. EDMC is not that experience. You are sales motivated, and you are encouraged by your managers to push "Students" into starting as early as possible. I understand the majority of schools are making a profit, but those schools have a name, and have credibility that proves jobs can be obtained. Online Education at EDMC's schools does not provide that type of name to help the advancement of a person's career. I felt like the hardest part was trying to be a counselor, but they were pushing counselors to simply get students to start. There was little council outside of figuring out what you could use to get these individuals to start a school program they intially did not look into. Warm leads, more times than not were leads from a point and click website asking if a person would look into furthering their education. Next thing you know, they were talking to us after being transfered 3 times. It was sad, and It was depressing in some cases. These were good people, and for anyone who truly wanted to go to school and get a degree. They have better options from real schools who can provide real atmospheres to make you feel like your getting a quality education.
