What is Career Protocol?

The Career Protocol is the unspoken code of conduct that creates an illustrious and joyful career. It’s reflected in the way top leaders naturally conduct themselves. And it centers on the skills and disciplines of self-awareness, choosing up, communication that connects, relationship nurturing, and personal growth. The Career Protocol isn’t widely taught in the course of one’s education. We figured it out through decades of trial and error, and we’re here to teach it the world’s next generation of business leaders.

Our clients hire us to help them get into business school, but what we deliver is a transformative learning experience that sets them off on a permanently brighter, more confident, and more inspiring course towards their futures.

What is this job all about?

We work with MBA hopefuls worldwide, partnering with each applicant for up to a year to help them discover, understand, and communicate their very best self in their MBA applications. That means our Instructors need to be skilled at the following:

  • Always seeing the best in people and empowering them to see and believe in the very best in themselves: empathy, compassion, nuanced attention to detail, appreciation, and a commitment to uplifting others are the most foundational skills of our work

  • Giving clients deep insight into their own character by understanding and reflecting on the meaning behind the various stories that comprise their life experience

  • Helping shape stories that conform to the very best of the narrative art form and that build an emotional connection with readers of varied backgrounds (this requires excellent writing skills and a willingness to develop your own storytelling expertise in line with our cutting-edge frameworks)

  • Uncovering and emphasizing the client’s unique voice and perspective (this includes resisting the urge to tell clients what you think is the “right answer,” make difficult choices for them, or heavily edit essays yourself)

  • Understanding the difference among top MBA programs and ensuring clients address the needs and concerns of each school in their application

  • Continual development and pursuit of excellence – we are a learning organization and every year we add new tools and technology to the process of assisting our clients; we love efficiency and optimization and hold ourselves to high standards that get higher every year.

For whom is this job a good fit?

First and foremost, you need to love people and love helping them succeed. We are the kingmakers – the silent partners behind the great successes of our clients. You have to really love supporting the potential and fulfillment of others with no ego attachment of your own.

Second, and closely related to the first, you need to be an expert at building trust, maintaining relationships, and being of service. The MBA application journey brings up every human emotion imaginable. You need to be able to guide your clients safely through those stormy waters and make them feel totally taken care of and supported even when their worst fears or tendencies surface.

Third, you must have elite communication skills – written, spoken, non-verbal, and energetic. Everything we do is about advancing our clients’ abilities to express and represent themselves in the world, so you need to already have cultivated expertise, passion, and skill in the various realms of human communication.

Finally, you need to be willing to climb a steep learning curve regarding the MBA admissions game – consuming a mountain of materials through our private resources, conducting extensive research on different schools, and becoming an expert in the needs of top programs.

Though we do prefer advanced degree holders and people with 5+ years of work experience in any industry, we do not have a preference for MBAs, former admissions committee members, or people with admissions consulting experience. That said, if you do have any of those qualifications, we’ll consider it an asset, especially if it’s paired with coachability and a willingness to learn a new way of doing things.

What can you expect as a member of this team?

If you’re considering this job, chances are you’ve already had at least a taste of what it feels like to play a meaningful role in the success of someone else – you’ve been a teacher or a mentor or a coach. If so, then you know how good it feels to make a difference in someone’s life and to help them achieve their potential.

At Career Protocol, you’ll build a career based on that experience. Our clients are some of the most amazing people of their generation. So day in and day out, you’ll know that the work you’re doing is having a concrete positive impact on the lives of people who will go on to impact the lives of thousands. It’s deeply satisfying.

While we’re a remote organization, spread out all over the world, we operate as a truly collaborative team. We communicate constantly on Slack and meet weekly to share best practices, advance our learning, and support clients.

If you become a member of our team, we’ll provide extensive mentorship, training, and job-shadowing on an ongoing basis to ensure that you both kick ass at this job and love doing it. You’ll have the freedom to work from your own home (as many of us are doing these days!) while feeling like part of something much bigger than yourself.

The work hours are extremely flexible. In fact, they couldn’t really be any more flexible. You set your own schedule, and you can take as many or as few clients as you would like within our min/max band to achieve your ideal work-life balance. Side hustles are cool, but if you join this team, you should plan to consider this your “full-time job.”
