Member schools may list open positions on our website. Please complete our form to have a position included here. Non-member schools or college admission-related organizations interested in a paid listing of a job opening should email Linda Pierre, ACCIS Director of Member Services and Operations. 

Salary transparency is an important equity-oriented practice. ACCIS strongly advocates for the inclusion of salary ranges in job postings whenever possible. Many states now require the inclusion of salary ranges. That said, we recognize that college counseling offices are often unable to provide salary ranges due to school policy; we also realize that some directors do not know the range for positions in their own departments. We ask that you please include as much context for salary as possible, from an actual range in the text of the posting, to "salary is based upon years of experience," to "school policy prevents sharing this information." If you are unable to provide a salary range, we encourage you to use the resources collated by Cynthia Cowan-Tsai LINKED HERE to engage in discussion with your head of school, CFO, and HR manager to begin or continue the conversation. If you are not in a position to share a salary range, we encourage you to provide context for salary within your post.  You will be asked about salary inclusion in the submission form.
