An academic advisor works with students in secondary and post-secondary education settings. The role requires the advisor to keep a precise record of a students' academic progress and meet with students periodically to provide feedback and guidance toward successful completion of a degree program. Depending on the institution, academic advisors may work with students in a select few programs and may specialize in providing guidance toward certain degrees, or may offer advice to a more general group of students.
Academic advisors should have a minimum of a Bachelor's degree. Although a specific degree program is not required, degrees in education or counseling are highly preferred for this career. Advanced degrees in educational leadership or counseling may also be necessary, particularly for post-secondary academic advisors. Successful academic advisors should have strong communication skills and be highly organized.
