Reporting live from the SSATB Annual Meeting in Philadelphia! While this conference has been on our calendars since last year’s meeting, our plans to present ‘The Newbie Who Knows’ was not….
The power of “yes” can go a long way. It can take you from the University of New Hampshire’s graduation stage to the Admission office at Oldfields School in Maryland. It can take you from Assistant Director of Admission to Associate Director of Admission and Director of Financial Aid in less than six months. If can take you from an SSATB ATI attendee to a SSATB presenter in just one year. The power of “yes” can do wonders for any newbies career in admissions.
You might be wondering: how can I be the Newbie Who Knows when I know nothing about admissions? It’s simple if and only if you’re willing to get your hands dirty.
During our presentation this morning, my colleague and I shared our personal accounts of how we managed lofty and imminent promotions at our respective institution and how we believe adaptability, versatility, and agility set the foundation for the successes we have experienced.
You don’t have to have years of admission experience in order to make an impact on your institution.
Stay tuned for how you can be the newbie who knows!
