DeVry in our Naperville location is experiencing continued growth, and we are looking to add colleagues to our Admissions team.

Are you curious about people and finding out about their goals and motivations in life? Do you believe that continuing education can positively impact a person's life?

If you answered “Yes” to these questions, and have prior experience in recruitment, marketing, client services or consulting, the admissions advisor role might be the career for you! Our admissions advisors are the first point of contact for prospective students, so we are looking for engaging, warm, enthusiastic people who will quickly create meaningful relationships.

Job Requirements

The role of the admissions advisor is to reach out to individuals via phone, or through video conferencing, take incoming calls and place outbound calls to prospective students in a call center team environment.
Admissions advisors interview prospective students to determine their motivation for attending college; understand their career goals and the obstacles that might prevent them from starting or continuing their education; help them to overcome those obstacles; and ultimately help them identify the degree-program that best matches their needs.
During the interview advisors present information about the benefits of education and advisors, their message to the student's needs, motivation, and career goals.
Once prospective students decide to enroll, advisors guide them through the admissions process, responding to questions, linking them to financial aid and academic advisors, gathering the documents necessary to start school, and ensuring students complete admissions testing.
By networking and building relationships with their students, admissions advisors identify and contact other prospective students.

Successful admissions advisors will:

Have a Bachelor's Degree or equivalent relevant experience.
