If you are proficient at recruiting, a job in Admissions may be a good choice for you. This is a good time to talk to prospective students. Back in the day there were only certain times per year to recruit new students. Now because of technology and the upswing in online learning, recruiting can occur throughout the year!
I believe these recruiters are more than just recruiters: they’re dream makers. What I mean by that is, your education will be tailored to whatever your chosen career path will be. I’m not sure if I was just excited to be attending school, or I was working with the best! I’ll choose the latter, since my experiences were awesome!
