Our company educates Chinese high school students about their undergraduate options in the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada, and then helps them prepare strategic and compelling applications. ESC students have been admitted to every top American college and university as well as some of the most prestigious UK and Canadian schools.
What You Will Do
Prepare students in grades 9-11 for their college application process by advising on academic and extracurricular development.
Guide students in grade 12 through the American, UK, and Canadian college application processes.
Make data-driven recommendations about which schools each 12th grader should apply to based on extensive ESC data and your understanding of the student's interests and personality.
Work one-on-one with 12th graders to help them identify and achieve their educational aspirations by brainstorming essay ideas, developing their writing ability, and practicing interviewing skills.
Graduate and Transfer Applications
ESC has also begun offering support to students applying to the full range of graduate programs, as well as students who wish to transfer to a new undergraduate institution. ESC consultants with relevant experience may be assigned to work with students in either group, in addition to or instead of 12th grade students.
ESC’s physical headquarters are in Beijing, China. However, we are open to considering applicants for both China-based positions and 'remote' positions based in the US. For remote staff members interested in visiting China, there may be the opportunity to travel to China and work with students and other staff members in person for several weeks at a time throughout the year.
We offer full-time and part-time/contract positions.
We take an ethical approach to the application process. We don’t write essays for students; we provide highly individualized support and guidance as they put together their own applications.
We take a holistic approach to the application process. Our educational programs are structured to help students grow as individuals throughout their time working with us. We help them develop the communication and critical thinking skills necessary to thrive when they arrive on campus.
We emphasize the professional growth of our staff members, beginning with an intensive training and onboarding program, and continuing through close mentorship from senior team members and customized leadership development workshops.
We take pride in creating a warm, welcoming, and diverse community. We hire individuals from a variety of backgrounds who contribute their perspectives and experiences to help ESC continue to grow and develop.
