Enrollment and Admissions Advisor

University of Phoenix, Fresno, CA

I responded to incoming calls from interested students while also working through an existing database of past inquiries. The goal in each case was to enroll candidates in an appropriate program for college. I also actively recruited students at public events, job fairs, and employer-sponsored resource events.

My favorite part was working with students who happened to walk into our office. Getting to know them and growing to understand their goals and barriers supported their search for the right program by giving them skills tests and working in ONET to scan job categories.
