Project Specialist, East
The Project Specialist, East will develop and disseminate knowledge, tools, and resources for effective advising. The Project Specialist, East also manages the delivery of training essential to effective advising.  Trainings focus on the knowledge, skills, and capacities advisers need to achieve goals established for CAC’s key performance indicators, including one on one meetings, family engagement, financial aid assistance, and best match and fit advising.  In addition, the Project Specialist, East will develop tools and resources to support advisers working with distinct populations, including but not limited to 9th – 11th graders, students with learning differences, and rural students.  The overarching goal is to increase college readiness and propel students to enroll in a college fit for them by helping advisers meet the unique needs of students. 

Hybrid Adviser, Texas
CAC’s Innovation team is seeking full-time Hybrid Advisers to support a pilot project with the Texas Education Agency (TEA) to increase college and career readiness, postsecondary enrollment, and postsecondary persistence among Texas high school students. Specifically, Hybrid Advisers will be primarily based in Austin, TX, serving as one of two advisers in a school in Coastal Bend Texas (outside Corpus Christi). Hybrid Advisers ensure that students have the information necessary to explore the full range of college options and are also responsible for diligently recording and tracking student engagement and programmatic milestones leading to college enrollment.

In this project, Hybrid Advisers serve either 9-10th graders or 11-12th graders through virtual 1-on-1s, regular delivery of timely content via text and email, and monthly in-person events (involving overnight travel) that reinforce critical milestones in postsecondary access and success. They also support the design and development of content that gets delivered to the students they serve and assist with other operational and management tasks as needed. As this is a pilot, the Hybrid Advisers are expected to contribute to internal learnings around effective student engagement, in-person events, and data management practices to help CAC refine the model for future scale. This project will begin its third year of a three-year grant for the 2021-2022 school year. To learn more or to apply, visit JazzHR.
