What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?
Assistant Director of Admissions (college/university) in Jersey City:
"A Lot of Traveling - Very Gratifying in the End."
Make sure the college/university pays for your rental vehicle while out recruiting.
Make sure you are reimbursed for all expenses while out on the road.
Listen to the students when they speak to you they are trying to find their way.
Assistant Director of Admissions (college/university) in Philadelphia:
My advice for anyone starting in Admissions is to make sure that you are a good communicator. It is imperative to be able to communicate with students, parents, faculty, teachers, guidance counselors, etc.
