Program Associate, eAdvising

CAC’s Innovation team is seeking a full-time Program Associate to support our eAdvising initiative aimed 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. The Program Associate will supervise up to 16 remote eAdvisers and evaluate effectiveness and impact of individual eAdvisers to ensure students enroll in highly selective institutions. This unique opportunity is ideal for a results-oriented manager, driven to achieve organizational goals and motivate young professionals in a fast-paced, start-up environment. 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 Chapel Hill, North Carolina.


Hybrid Adviser

The Hybrid Adviser will play a critical role in delivering college advising through a new partnership between CAC and the Kansas City Scholars (KC Scholars) program to increase the number of high-achieving, low-and moderate-income students who apply to, matriculate, and graduate from college. This unique partnership connects a newly developed, large-scale scholarship and college support program with existing CAC programs. The Hybrid Adviser will provide goal-oriented advising to students and carefully track student interactions and outcomes (paying close attention to CAC’s Key Performance Indicators [KPIs] and KC Scholars Benchmarks) using GRACE, CAC’s online student tracker tool. The Hybrid Adviser will provide on-site support to students in their high schools as well as virtual advising via multiple technology platforms. Because students may not always be available during school hours, the Hybrid Adviser may be asked to interact with students on a flexible basis, including at night or on weekends. Hybrid Advisers will also have expected in-person office hours on a weekly basis for trainings, team meetings, and committee projects.

This position reports to the Regional Director of Programs, Midwest and will be based in Kansas City, Missouri.


Project Manager

The Project Manager will play a critical role in equipping programs and advisers in four states (California, Texas, Michigan, and Illinois) with the information and resources they need to advance a new program initiative. More specifically, this individual will be responsible for creating materials and resources related to this partnership, traveling to train program directors and advisers, and creating a data-driven accountability system that enables program directors and advisers to meet the student- and adviser-level metrics outlined within the goals of this partnership. 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.

This position reports to the Senior Director of Programs and will be based within 25 miles of a College Advising Corps program in California or Texas.


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.
