Join the CollegeVine team.

At CollegeVine, we care about these numbers:


minutes of guidance the average public school student receives across 4 years.


average student-to-guidance counselor ratio in US public schools.

CollegeVine was started in a dorm room by three friends in 2013. Our founders had just gone through the college application process and realized that, for such an important life decision, there wasn’t much guidance out there helping families navigate the admissions process. So, they set out to level the playing field of college admissions.

Here’s How We’re Solving The Problem

Near-Peer Mentorship

We recruit the most talented consultants from top schools and train them in our curricula. Having recently completed the admissions process themselves, CollegeVine consultants are able to relate to their students on a personal level.

Affordable Professional Guidance

Compared to other private consultants, we aim to offer our services at an affordable price. We also operate a pro-bono program that provides unlimited advising to students from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Applying Data To Admissions

Having worked with thousands of students since our founding, we’re bringing data and science to the art of high school guidance and college admissions advising. We provide our consultants with data-driven software to help them confidently make smart recommendations to families.

We also care a lot about our students' mental health. We understand the admissions process is stressful (after all, we’ve been there!), so we’re proud of the fact that our consultants help to relieve anxiety for the families they work with.

Our Network Of Talented Mentors Is Our Edge

Why Work Part-time As A Collegevine Consultant?


Competitive Pay

To attract the best talent possible, we pay our consultants competitively, starting at $20/hr with ample room for growth. We also provide many opportunties to do additional work in product dev, operations, and marketing.


Make A Difference

Our strategies work, and you'll have a front seat to watch it all unfold. Throughout your time working together, you'll build a close bond with your students. There's no better feeling than seeing your students reach their dreams.


Build Your Resume

We're a fast growing startup, so it pays to get involved. Dedicated team members quickly rise through the ranks. Our consultants go on to work at Google, Goldman Sachs, and Space X; others move into social work and education.

Other Opportunities

From time to time, we offer our consultants additional work that is more business-facing. Some roles include:

  • Marketing

  • Product Dev
  • Copy-Editing

But Don't Just Take It From Us!

"I joined CollegeVine as an SAT tutor my freshman year. It's been incredible to watch not only the company grow, but also my own responsibilities grow with it. My current managing director role has prepared me more than any other experience or internship for the day-to-day challenges of managing a team in a fast-paced startup."

"I joined CollegeVine as an apps consultant and quickly found a dynamic work environment that truly cares about each of its clients. Since working here, I’ve expanded my role and became a mentor and curriculum developer. My time at CollegeVine has not only allowed me to mentor students but also reflect on my own HS experience."

“I have been working with CV since the summer of my senior year, and it has been a very rewarding experience. This year, I worked with a student aiming for UMich, but he didn’t think he would get in. When decisions came, he was accepted and it was genuinely a great feeling helping him showcase the best version of himself.”
