Educational Consultants

Now Hiring for the 2022-2023 academic year.

Accepting applications now through February 13!

Every year, Alpha Sigma Tau hires recent graduates to work with our collegiate chapter officers and advisors. These Educational Consultants are change agents in our organization. They build relationships, offer support, and challenge chapters to reach their fullest potential.

Being an Educational Consultant (EC) isn’t your typical job. Here at AΣΤ, we often say being an EC is like getting three years of work experience in one year. Because every day will be different, you’ll develop and fine-tune many transferrable skills that future employers want. These skills—public speaking, coaching, communicating effectively, time and project management, and customer service—will set you apart from the competition when you’re looking for your next role.

For the 2022-2023 term, we need some ECs to travel to various chapters and others to be stationed at a campus working intentionally with a specific chapter. Regardless of your assignment, your work is critical to the future success of AΣΤ.

FAQs

What travel expenses are covered?

When traveling on Sorority business, all of your travel expenses (airfare, lodging, baggage fees, parking, tolls, etc.) are covered. Plus, you can keep the travel rewards you earn. You’ll also get a daily stipend for food. Many of our alumnae who were ECs say they were able to build solid savings during their time as an EC because so many living expenses were covered.

What would my client chapter portfolio look like?

Every Educational Consultant has a portfolio of client chapters she works with one-on-one. The number and type of client chapters you’d have is decided in the summer and varies based on a number of factors. ECs who are stationed at a chapter for intensive and extended support will be primarily focused on that chapter and may have a handful of nearby chapters. ECs who are not stationed at a chapter may have a dozen (give or take) chapters who they support. Your portfolio would be determined after you’ve started and once we’ve assessed the Sorority’s needs and the strengths of our ECs.

Can I work somewhere else or attend school while I’m an EC?

Being an EC is a full-time job, and the schedule can be unpredictable and sporadic. When traveling, you may be away from home for a week or more at a time. When working virtually with chapters, you will likely need to have Zoom calls in the evenings or be available for recruitment questions over the weekend. Because of this, ECs cannot have another job or be enrolled in school during their term.

Do I need a specific degree to be an EC?

Not at all! In fact, some of our most successful ECs weren’t sure what type of career they wanted to pursue after graduation. We’ve had ECs from many different majors, and we’ve also had ECs who knew exactly what they wanted to do but wanted to take a year “off.” That’s one of the best parts about this role—it’s only a year, and it goes quickly. It’s the perfect role to have while you apply to grad school, search for your next position, or figure out what’s next.

So, what happens after a year?

ECs are hired for a one-year term. In most years, ECs may be offered the opportunity to return for a second year. This option depends on the Sorority’s staffing needs and the EC’s performance in the role.
