EIC Education

Senior Consultant

Shanghai, China

New Pathway was founded in 2009 with the mission to provide high-quality education for students seeking international education opportunities. Since then, New Pathway has grown to one of the most well-respected and well-recognized names in China for test preparation, student mentorship, and educational consulting. In December 2014, New Pathway Education merged with EIC Group, one of the largest education market shareholders in China. The purpose of the merger was to combine EIC’s market reach with New Pathway’s expertise and premium service. The resulting company now boasts a strong presence in every major Chinese city and premium one-stop education solution for Grades 7-12 customer groups, branded as Prestige Only.

What sets Prestige Only apart from every competitor in China is our commitment to developing our students. While other Chinese education companies are focused on results, some going as far as falsifying records, test scores, and recommendations, Prestige Only takes a different approach through mentorship, character development, and teaching lifelong success. Our company doesn’t just seek to place top students into top schools, but also to equip them with the skills, knowledge, direction, and discipline to thrive in those environments.

The New Pathway and EIC Group has offices in Boston, Hong Kong, and New York along with 22 cities throughout China.

SENIOR CONSULTANT | CHINA

If you are a graduate from a top 30 US University with strong communication skills, an interest in international consulting, and a passion for working with young adults, then you just might have what it takes to be a Senior Consultant (SC) at Prestige Only. As an SC, your primary task will be working with students: monitoring their academic progress, providing key insight into Western education, and assisting with the application process. Beyond this, there is vast room for growth and professional development based on your skills and interests, as the recent merge with EIC has opened up a host of responsibilities and opportunities.

The SC plays a vital role in mentoring students, assisting in achieving their educational goals by making personalized academic and extracurricular plans. SCs should expect to actively contribute to internal resource development geared towards enhancing student’s academic skills. The bulk of the application work centers on developing the student’s application essays and personal statement with the end goal of helping students gain acceptance to the school of their choice. Thanks to our strong relationship with students through mentorship and extensive preparation, we have helped 80% of our students get into US top 30 universities and 100% into the top 50.

Reporting to their Team Leader and the Director of Prestige Only, the ideal SC is passionate about making a difference in students’ lives. SCs are expected to effectively manage all student communication via phone, email, WeChat (a Chinese messaging phone app), and Skype. SCs are also expected to communicate frequently and clearly with their bilingual Operations Consultant (OC) partner, who manages translation and parent communication, and assists in scheduling.

Rigorous training, adherence to company policies, and a high level of maturity are required given the responsibility and independence awarded to each SC in the management of his/her cases.
