You are an organizer and thrive on detail. Getting all the details - gathering necessary information and organizing is your thing. You understand deadlines and most importantly how to get things done right and done on-time. The more that needs to get done - the more focused and productive you become.
Do you remember your first trip overseas?
Remember how different the world looked when you came back; how it gave you new eyes and a new perspective on your everyday life? That’s the experience we create for hundreds of young students each summer. We are looking for someone who has a passion to share that experience with others by reaching out to them and their parents throughout the year.
We are seeking an Admissions Coordinator for our student travel company and scholarship program. Our Admissions Department collects and manages data from our clients and prospective scholarship students to ensure that our travelers have an excellent experience and that our company is reasonably protected from risk and unnecessary liability. The Admissions Coordinator works to maximize efficiency and accuracy in the Admissions Department. Additionally, the Admissions Coordinator is the staff person who has the most contact with our clients. S/he must be friendly, personable and have the ability to always put our best foot forward. Our website receives thousands of inquiries each year from families looking for a unique and life-changing experience for their teens. Our Coordinator will follow up with these families, by email, phone, text or Skype to share the excitement and value of our trips. For serious prospects you will be setting appointments for our founder, with over 30 years experience running trips who can answer every question.
Is mature, has had their own passion for travel, and can share their story of how those experiences have enriched their lives. The ideal candidate is going to be highly detail oriented, and comfortable working via email or phone with people all over the globe. You will need to be intensely detailed orientated while still maintaining a positive relationship with each family and traveler. There is a constant stream of leads and applicants, so you will need to be diligent in follow up, keeping track of your efforts in our CRM system so that we ensure that no family is missed. Experience using online software tools is a must, and prior experience with customer service is a big plus. This is a lot of long days on the phone, and in front of the computer, listening to the concerns of parents and reassuring them of all the safeguards and safety measures we have in place.
