 ADMISSIONS COUNSELOR

 

 

The Admissions Counselor is responsible for presenting the University to prospective students in a variety of settings utilizing recruitment and communications techniques that most effectively engage contemporary college-bound students.  It is expected that the Admissions Counselor will travel extensively (7-9 consecutive weeks during the fall semester and 2-3 weeks during the spring) to visit high schools, community colleges, attend college fairs, and host off-campus recruitment programs sponsored by UMass Dartmouth.   Extensive pre-travel communication and follow-up with all prospective students requires a thorough understanding of and fluency in modern communication techniques including use of social networking sites; blogging; web-based video presentation; broadcast text messaging and a range of web-based marketing techniques.  The Counselor is expected to conduct on-campus recruitment activities, participate in major campus visit programs and other Programs sponsored by Academic Affairs. Having the ability to relate in a positive and compelling manner with college bound students by using media and communication techniques that resonate with the University’s largely traditionally aged high school student market share is essential to success in this role.
