Our client is bringing transparency, and integrity to the study abroad industry.  Based in Shanghai, their programs range from intensive two-week academic institutes at top universities to comprehensive four-year study abroad experiences at leading private high schools throughout the US.

Motivated to make a difference after a friend was found struggling in school overseas, bored, and unaware of the many extracurricular opportunities available in the US, our client’s founder, thinking their friend had simply chosen the wrong study abroad program, soon discovered that nearly every other study abroad program offered to international students provided no guidance or support when they arrived, offering little beyond admission counselling and homestay matching.  He began a quest to design a better study abroad experience. 

Speaking extensively with seasoned international scholars to brainstorm how existing study abroad programs could be improved, learned about some of the biggest challenges that international students face: making friends, deciding what classes to take, getting involved in extracurricular activities, staying socially engaged after the school day, and exploring the world beyond their local communities. With the belief that studying in a foreign country should foster intellectual curiosity, cultural dexterity, and self-confidence, they sat down to create a program that addressed these challenges head-on, redefining how students go abroad, empowering them to learn and live in the US with confidence and ease.

Now in their second round of funding and growing at 900% in just one year, they are seeking three more college counsellors to provide honest, helpful, transparent advice to Chinese students heading to the US.  Not only meeting their academic needs, but also their personality and extracurricular interests.

To be successful as a mentor and college counsellor, you do need to be tenacious, passionate about people, education and have lived or are living in the US.  You could be a native US citizen, returnee Chinese or other foreign student coming back from your studies, who has lived in the US for a number of years, wanting to pass on what you have learned, your experiences, loves, likes and hates!

In return, you will get to work in a start-up going through huge growth, with full training provided.  This job is not for those who are here for a beer, however it is for those who are passionate about people and want to see inside and be part of the explosive start-up scene in Shanghai, China, and get to work with the founder and CEO.
