Academic Advisor (College/University) Reviews

Q: What is it like working as an Academic Advisor (College/University)?

Academic Advisor (College/University) in Clovis:
"Strong community-based family environment."
Pros: The community helps one another
Cons: Not as many job opportunities

Academic Advisor (College/University) in Bowling Green:
"Public value added for low pay and stagnant wages."
This job is great for other people. You may provide others great service and assist students in achieving greater pay than they expected - far more than you will earn. Your pay, for having attained a master's degree, will not be far off those that decided to skip university education in favor of trade work though, which may make you wonder if maybe you would have been better off studying to be a carpenter or electrician for far less time and debt. Some community college degrees pay more and Payscale should analyze that so you can see the income opportunity cost.
