About Aptive Education

Aptive Education is a premier global admissions consulting company focused on building EdTech solutions in an increasingly digitized world. Our team of international innovators, educators, and developers work together to curate personalized guidance through tech solutions in order to accelerate a student’s path to successful college admissions and beyond.

Whether we partner with organizations or with individuals, our success is nurtured and embedded by opportunities for learning and growth, rooted in the belief that the apex of a student’s educational journey starts with expansively discovering their interests and then deepening their pursuit towards becoming self-driven in growth, mastery, impact, and achievement.

We operate in Seoul, South Korea and New York City.

About the Role

As an Education Consultant, you will be a member of our Admissions Consulting Team to develop and implement admissions strategies with students based on their academic, professional, and social interests. We care about helping students gain admissions into top schools insofar as it serves as a productive and meaningful process that leads to their intellectual, professional, social, and moral growth.

Successful consultants are intellectually curious, driven in their own pursuit of growth, and are willing to venture into the trenches with students to help them learn, gain meaningful experiences, pursue impactful projects, and connect with the wider world beyond their own immediate social circles and communities. In short, we enjoy learning and achieving with and alongside our students.

Our admissions consulting services provide guidance on gaining admission into boarding/private high schools, colleges, and graduate programs.

  • Contribute to the development of Aptive’s technology platforms through content creation, observing user behavior, gathering user feedback, and accessing educational outcomes

Requirements

  • 2+ years of experience in admissions (boarding/private school, college, or graduate)
  • Proven track record of successful school admissions
  • Proficient computer skills (i.e. Microsoft Office, Google Drive, etc.) with the ability to learn new tools
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Ability to take ownership and responsibility for your students
  • Ability to complete work and tasks according to set timelines
