What It’s Like to Work Here
Our colleagues describe us best
This short video will tell you even more about life at Collegewise:
We built the company we’d want to join.
Company culture isn’t a mission statement or a banner on the wall; culture makes itself based on what a company actually does. Here are a few things Collegewise does every day.
The best professional development in the business
Our training doesn’t stop with making sure you have the knowledge and materials needed to do your job right. Everyone at Collegewise is invited to join our regular webinars and in-person trainings presented by our most experienced Collegewisers. And we each have our own professional development budget to spend however we see fit. It feels good to always be getting better at something that matters, and you’ll have plenty of opportunities to learn and grow in your career here.
Everyone’s opinions count
We aren’t just open to hearing feedback from everyone at Collegewise—we regularly ask for it. In fact, some of the things we love most about working at Collegewise, including our “Summer Friday” hours, exist because our leadership had the good sense to listen to the Collegewisers who suggested them.
A supportive, connected "work hive"
No matter where you live, you’ll have opportunities to work, learn, and play with the people who make us who we are. Collegewisers form their own projects and teams, like the OCTF (Oxford Comma Task Force), the monthly “Inside the Hive” newsletter, and the book club for Collegewise bookworms. And once a year at our company meetup, we all come together in places like Austin, Cancun, and Sedona.
Contributing to the college-going community
We admit it… we like sharing. From our presentations at high schools and conferences, to our free resources for families and counselors, to the advice our founder shares every day on his blog —when we’re not helping our students, we’ve got unlimited intellectual capital to offer to anyone who wants it (yes, including our competition).
