    I worked at Council On International Educational Exchange full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Was field staff so I didn't have to work in Portland, ME. Being filed staff i received a bunch of monitors and a laptop and phone which helped me keep work and my personal life separate.

    Cons

    Where to begin. If you value having your opinion heard, please avoid. Lots of blind direction coming from the top and it essentially trickles down into an unorganized mess. The job I signed up for and the job I ended up doing were two completely different things. It was pitched to me as a remote advising position and I ended up in a strictly sales driven position which is not what I wanted to be doing. There was a sales incentive and sales calls that had to be made. The numbers across the bored were in the toilet so it seems they were using my position as a scapegoat. The problem is the cost of the programs are too high. The pay was abysmal

    Advice to Management

    Redistribute your money. LOWER THE COST OF YOUR PROGRAMS!!! The fact that there are dozens of other outside providers coupled with the fact that many universities have their own study abroad programs now makes it incredibly difficult to convince a student to spend sometime $4000 more for the same experience they could get somewhere else.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Council On International Educational Exchange in August 2016.

    Interview

    Sent me a link for a "one way" interview first; you go to a website and questions pops up and you film yourself answering them. A total pain, and serves no purpose but to save them time and effort. Then got a real interview, everything went well, and I never heard another word from them again!
