About the Position
Though 2020 has certainly gone differently than we expected it to, at Juno, we remain focused on our purpose: helping young people get ahead. The impact of the COVID-19 crisis on young people has been enormous, and more than ever, young people are going to need us to help them discover web development and possibly even support them in making a career change through our Bootcamp program.
That’s where you come in. We’re looking for a strategic, client-centred, process-driven Admissions Coordinator to join the Juno team.
In this role, you’ll be responsible for admissions to Juno’s highly rated Web Development Immersive Program, an intense nine-week program that helps relative beginners to coding to become professional web developers. You’ll consider the relevant data points from applicants and make decisions about who to admit to our program, providing feedback to successful applicants as well as those who don’t quite make the cut, so that they can have the opportunity to improve. Sometimes it takes people a few tries to be admitted to our program, and that’s totally okay! Feedback plays an important role in ensuring everyone who should be at Juno ends up joining us.
We are the only school in Canada to offer Income Share Agreements, and recently we introduced Pay-What-You-Can Income Share Agreements, where an applicant can pay an amount of their choosing upfront, paying the rest once they land a job making at least $50,000. You’ll be responsible for administering Income Share Agreement funds, ensuring that the budgeted amount is distributed to each cohort.
Diversity and inclusion are very important to us. You will champion our diversity and inclusion initiatives, doing the work to help us make our programs more accessible and ensuring our classrooms are filled with wonderful people from many different backgrounds. You’ll also manage our scholarship program, where we offer scholarships to those in financial need, as well as to groups underrepresented in our learning community.
Finally, to close the feedback loop, you’ll also work directly with our graduates, helping out the Outcomes team for a few hours a week. It’s important that you see what our graduates are like after the program, so that you can hone our Admissions process to attract and accept applicants who are the right fit for Juno and for Juno’s employer partners. You’ll conduct resume critiques and mock interviews with our recent graduates, prepping them for interviews and working to improve the metric that matters most to us at Juno: placement rate.
We are looking for someone with Admissions experience for this role. Alternatively, we would like to see significant evidence of your knowledge, experience and passion around Admissions best practices. We’ll leave it to you to prove that you have some experience or thoughts around Admissions if you choose to apply.
