Recruiting Specialist - West Coast
About the Opportunity
The Graduate Recruiting Specialist is a member of the Admissions
team in the College of Engineering, reporting to the Director of
Graduate Admissions. The Graduate Recruiting Specialist has
responsibility for assisting with the admissions pipeline process
and activities (driving inquiries to application) for the graduate
engineering programs in the College of Engineering. The Graduate
Recruiting Specialist participates in and supports the execution of
pipeline support activities which include regular communication
with inquiry and pre-application populations and responding to
specific inquiries. The Specialist will liaise directly with the
central Marketing and Communications team, working on brand-related
content and ensuring seamless communications with students across
the pipeline. They may participate in recruiting activities
throughout the year both locally and those which may require
travel, including corporate on-site visits and information
sessions; graduate school fairs and forums; and university events.
In addition, the Specialist will participate in implementing on-
and off-campus recruiting and yield events including information
sessions and open houses for admitted candidates. Aggressive and
consistent admissions efforts are essential to increase the
quantity and quality of admitted students. Generating lots of
interest and leads is meaningless without consistent follow-through
and moving applicants through the pipeline to application. In
addition, the College of Engineering is committed to raising
visibility by improving its position in the engineering school
rankings. The efforts of the Graduate Recruiting Specialist will be
critical in this regard.
Bachelor's degree required, MS or MBA preferred such as a graduate
degree in higher education administration. At least three years'
experience with preference given to candidates who have experience
in graduate admission and recruiting. Candidates must demonstrate a
professional presence and maturity in dealing with a variety of
audiences, external and internal to the university. Excellent
interpersonal, oral presentation, and written communication skills
are critical for success. Expertise in word processing,
spreadsheets, presentation software, and database management.
Strong project management/organizational skills with attention to
detail, commitment to quality, and ability to balance multiple
demands from demanding constituencies. Creativity, positive
can-do attitude, flexibility, initiative, and ability to function

committed to continuous improvement. Willingness and ability to
work evenings and weekends, as required.
