Do​ ​you​ ​have​ ​experience​ ​mentoring​ ​and​ ​developing​ ​young​ ​professionals,​ ​especially​ ​in​ ​consulting, strategy, finance​ ​and​ ​technology?

Are​ ​you​ ​familiar​ ​with​ ​the​ ​process​ ​of​ ​applying​ ​to​ ​top​ ​MBA​ ​programs,​ ​such​ ​as​ ​HBS, Wharton,​ ​and INSEAD,​ ​or are you curious to learn more?​ ​ ​Perhaps​ ​you​ ​have​ ​served​ ​as​ ​an​ ​alumni interviewer,​ ​helped​ ​a​ ​few​ ​applicants​ ​informally with college or MBA applications,​ ​or​ ​just love writing personal essays?

Are​ ​you​ ​looking​ ​for​ ​work​ ​that’s​ ​more​ ​flexible​ ​than​ ​a​ ​corporate​ ​career,​ ​yet​ ​challenging,​ ​rewarding and​ ​well-compensated?

The​ ​role

As an MBA admissions consultant, you’ll work with applicants to top MBA programs. You must be:

  1. A​ ​sensitive​ ​listener​ who can help applicants to develop their personal story. You already know that schools don’t just want to see a resume and a pile of grades and test scores. They want to understand the person behind them, and successful essays often cover deeply personal topics, such as ethnic identity, family history, or personal failures and weaknesses. An MBA admissions consultant must win the trust of applicants to be successful in this area.
  2. A​ ​great​ ​editor​ to help applicants with the many essays involved.
  3. A​ ​mentor​ who can help young professionals to plan the right career path and present themselves to others effectively, with a special focus on typical pre- and post-MBA fields, such as consulting, strategy, finance, and technology.
  4. An​ ​expert​ — or budding expert — on top MBA programs, the MBA application process, and the experience of being an MBA student. Having an MBA may help, but is not required and does not, in itself, qualify you for the role.

You’ll work with MBA applicants who we have pre-screened for being coachable and realistic. We want applicants who will listen to your advice, and who are likely to succeed after implementing it. You can expect to build deep relationships with your candidates and to be showered in gratitude after helping them to achieve their goals.

The job is based in our offices in Baarn, NL. For the right international applicants, we are ready to sponsor Dutch residence permits and the very attractive 30% ruling tax credit.

Founded in 2012, Menlo Coaching helps applicants apply to top MBA programs. We provide intensive coaching with writing the essays and advise on all other parts of the MBA application. Our personal approach makes the application process less painful and maximizes applicants' chances of being admitted to the program of their choice, and our collaborative team environment means that we are rapidly growing and expanding!
