What is a Babylist Career Advisor and what do they do
Babylist career advisors are experts in the field of networking, careers, and employment. They teach job-seeking skills, work closely with Babylist’s career coaches to help people find jobs, and have a friendly network of employers they can tap into to find opportunities. They are the face of Babylist’s career services, and are the first line of contact for new hires and those looking to find a job. They’re also the contact person for our campus ambassadors and partners.
Our advisors’ specific duties include:
– Recruiting and hiring candidates for Babylist’s career coaches (this is done through an internal system, via referrals from advisors and other Babylist services, and occasionally via outside recruiting)
– Referring candidates to our career coaches (usually for a fee of $250)
– Coordinating the creation of the candidate profiles on our website that are used by job seekers and employers alike to find jobs (for which the advisor will receive a $250 flat. We don’t pay per click!).
– Coordinating the creation of the candidate profiles on our website that are used by job seekers and employers alike to find jobs (for which the advisor will receive a $250 flat. We don’t pay per click!). – Organizing career fairs and networking events on campus
– Conducting mock interviews with student candidates
