We are seeking a Student Career Counselor. The Manager, Career Development & Employer Engagement will counsel students and alumni in career planning at the Hopkins-Nanjing Center (“HNC”), and is also the primary manager of SAIS’s relationships with employers in the Asia-Pacific region. HNC is a partnership between Johns Hopkins University and Nanjing University and the third site of SAIS’s global reach alongside the Washington and Bologna campuses.

Specific Duties & Responsibilities

  • Counsel SAIS or HNC students in all aspects of their professional development, including clarification of career goals, providing current information on specific career fields and employment trends, developing effective documents (e.g. resumes, cover letters) and advising on conducting effective employment searches.
  • Advise in person or remotely SAIS DC and SAIS Europe students interested in professional opportunities in the Asia-Pacific region.
  • Develop and facilitate scalable workshops on career readiness and job search techniques.
  • Co-sponsor career readiness programming, including the SAIS-wide online professional development course with colleagues in Washington, DC and Bologna, Italy.
  • Organize employer-facing experiential learning activities, and virtual and in-person career treks for students.
  • Collect relevant employer and internship data and assist with the collection of data for tracking students’ employment outcomes.
  • Actively foster and maintain relationships with sector/region-specific employers, alumni, and professional associations, with whom Global Careers has an established relationship.
  • Assist in the identification of new employer contacts for the purposes of developing and maintaining sector/region-specific knowledge and fostering potential job and internship prospects, and employer-facing experiential learning.
  • Organize resume collections and on-campus presentations alongside employer partners.

Work Modality:

  • This position supports both the HNC and SAIS Global Careers roughly equally throughout a typical year, though the seasonal cycle shifts the proportion of duties between them from time to time.
  • This position occasionally will work at mutually agreed-upon times outside of normal work hours due to the time difference among the SAIS campuses in Washington, Nanjing, and Bologna, and may require work on evenings and on weekends as necessary.
  • The position reports primarily to the American Co-Director of the Hopkins-Nanjing Center and secondarily to the SAIS Director of Global Careers in Washington, DC.
  • This position requires extended travel to Nanjing, China, for significant parts of the semester under normal conditions when international travel to China is open, but presence in China must be cumulatively less than 183 days per year in total and China will not be considered the tax home.

Skills & Knowledge
  • Superior interpersonal, analytical, and problem-solving skills
  • Excellent communication skills in both oral and written English and in Mandarin Chinese
  • Knowledge of all aspects of career development, ability to counsel students in their professional planning and to plan and lead training workshops
  • Ability to work independently and as part of a team
  • Strong planning and organizational skills and the ability to manage competing priorities
  • Exceptional initiative and judgment
  • Strong marketing skills and customer-service orientation
  • Ability to work effectively with faculty, administrators, students, alumni and external constituents
  • Ability to work collaboratively in a bilingual, bicultural environment
  • Willingness and ability to travel internationally and domestically frequently; ability to build and maintain external relationships with employers and alumni
  • High level of proficiency in data management systems and other systems used by career development offices
  • Commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion and to serving the needs of a diverse and inclusive population
  • Openness to learn new technologies for career development
  • An international background and cross-cultural sensitivity to international employment issues and sectors
Technical qualifications or specialized certifications:
  • Computer and standard office equipment is used on a daily basis. Must have excellent computer skills (Word, Excel and PowerPoint) and quickly learn other programs as needed

Any specific physical requirements for the job:

  • This position requires a degree of mobility common to working in an office environment.

Supervisory responsibility (indicate the number and type of persons supervised by incumbent):

  • Up to 3 graduate assistants. The position generally works independently; decision-making actions are made in conjunction with the HNC American Co-Director and the Director of Global Careers.


Minimum Qualifications
  • Bachelor’s and 3 years of experience in student services, preferably in higher education or in a related employer human resource area.
  • Three (3) or more years of experience in career advising, programming, and student affairs.
  • Additional education may substitute for required experience in accordance to the JHU equivalency formula.


Preferred Qualifications
  • Master’s Degree.
  • Significant experience in representing organizational interests to external clients.
  • Significant experience living and working in a bilingual English/Chinese speaking environment.
  • The ideal candidate is comfortable with co-working and flexible work arrangements. Our educators work within multiple offices and spaces on campus. Rather than assigning office or desk spaces to our teams, we have modernized our approach and assigned laptops and cell phones and expect that our teams can work from anywhere for the purpose of scaling our impact across the University. For this model to work, the ideal candidate must present excellent skills in relationship development and engaging audiences in groups and via social media and digital outlets.
  • The ideal candidate is entrepreneurial, data and outcomes driven, strong in planning and execution, comfortable leading programs and engaging with groups, and enjoys developing relationships and connections with multiple stakeholders at once. The ideal candidate is an effective user of social media and digital outlets to engage multiple audiences, strengthen individual and organizational brand, scale impact, and influence public opinion.
