Senior Admissions Consultant / Director

The Role

We’re looking for experienced MBA admissions consultants to work with applicants to top MBA programs.

You should have a demonstrated track record of success advising applicants to Top 10 MBA programs and be ready to share testimonials and work samples.

This position can be performed remotely, or at our office just outside Amsterdam, NL (we can sponsor your work eligibility). This job should be your primary focus, but can happily co-exist with other part-time commitments.

Outside the busy season working with clients, there is also the opportunity to be hired for business tasks that fit your strengths and interests, such as:

A few reasons you might want to work with us are described below.

Are you an experienced MBA admissions consultant who wants to focus on high-impact 1:1 coaching moments with your clients—not low-level project management and administration?

We’ve spent years building a system that delegates away the “busy work” of consulting:

Do you want to work with a sane client load?

We charge more, allowing you to make a good income without taking on a crazy number of clients.

Do you want to work with deserving clients who appreciate you and your work?

Our marketing process generates more inquiries than we can serve, giving us the power to select applicants who are accomplished, realistic, and coachable. 

Although many of our clients come from top investment banking, consulting, and private equity firms and achieve admission to HSW, we politely decline to work with anyone who believes that a prestigious employer guarantees them admission to a top MBA program. We choose to work with applicants who respect the process and their consultant and who want to work hard to maximize their chances.

This doesn’t mean we work only with elite applicants—far from it. We’ve worked successfully with applicants who have failed out of college, been convicted of crimes, or faced unemployment. Our aim is always to provide balanced, honest feedback to applicants about their chances—no matter their profile.

Do you want to focus on the client’s best interest rather than “generating revenue”?

Some MBA admissions consulting firms track your “sales conversion rate” on free consultations. We don’t. Though our sales team always checks personal alignment before introducing a prospective client, a free consultation carries no further obligation: we want to work with the right clients, and are happy to decline some opportunities in order to secure a book of clients who will achieve great results and a positive relationship with you. 

Are you a one-person shop, but you’d rather work with clients than run a business?  Do you hate selling, marketing, writing contracts, collecting invoices, and the rest?

We invested more than $100k last year to improve our back-end systems, which include a one-click onboarding process for new clients and a research team that handles tedious-but-necessary tasks like sourcing essay and recommender questions directly from the school applications.
