Admissions counselors recruit and assist prospective students of a given educational institution, generally a college or university. Among other duties, an admissions counselor must be able to plan and execute a wide range of recruitment activities, from attending college fairs to leading campus tours. Often, the admissions counselor is the first and only representative a prospective student will meet before visiting campus, so exceptional interpersonal and communications skills are essential.
