The Project Manager will also provide high-level project management support to the Senior Director of Programs. Moderate travel (approximately 35-40%) will be required.

eAdviser

CAC’s Innovation team is seeking full-time “eAdvisers” to increase the number of high-achieving, low- and moderate-income students who apply to, matriculate, and graduate from our nation’s most selective institutions. To combat the phenomenon of “undermatching,” eAdvisers provide personalized virtual college advising (using multiple technology interfaces) to help students identify, apply to, and enroll in a specific group of highly selective colleges and universities with graduation rates above 70 percent. CAC’s eAdvisers are also responsible for diligently recording and tracking student engagement and college outcomes. Because high school students are often not available during school hours, advising sessions typically occur after normal business hours on a schedule to be determined by CAC. eAdvisers connect with students on a flexible schedule and should anticipate regular evening and occasional weekend hours. eAdvisers work remotely but have expected in-person office hours on a weekly basis for trainings, team meetings and committee projects. Occasional out-of-state travel for trainings and special events is required. For more information about this position and how to apply, please click here.

This position reports to the eAdvising Program Director and will be based in one of the following communities: Lancaster, Pennsylvania; Kansas City, Missouri; or Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
