About Minerva Schools at KGI
Minerva, headquartered in San Francisco, California, offers a unique undergraduate experience for the brightest, most motivated students in the world. Minerva has been deliberately designed to teach the capabilities needed to solve complex challenges. Combining a reinvented curriculum, rigorous academic standards, cutting-edge technology, and an immersive global experience, Minerva provides an exceptional and accessible education to prepare future leaders and innovators across all disciplines. Minerva formed an alliance with Keck Graduate Institute (KGI) to establish the Minerva Schools at KGI in 2013, a WASC-accredited, four-year, undergraduate institution. Over the course of their four year experience, students travel to San Francisco, Taipei, Seoul, Hyderabad, Berlin, Buenos Aires, and London.
Minerva Schools is looking to hire a student-centered, results-driven, and experienced Career Coach who aims to help young people grow personally and professionally and achieve their desired career outcomes. In this role, you will guide students through the appropriate mix of 1-1 coaching and group workshops, leveraging your skills in coaching, rapport-building, workshop design and facilitation.
You will have the opportunity to shape a new approach to how universities prepare students for the Future of Work, while engaging with an intellectually diverse, mission driven group of students that come to Minerva from around the world (more than 60 countries are represented in our undergraduate population).
During their four years at Minerva, students live and study in seven cities around the world. As a Career Coach and Talent Development Lead, you will work with a portfolio of students across their four years. This model will allow you to develop and maintain relationships with students over time, helping them to navigate transitions and draw connections as they engage in diverse academic and professional experiences around the world. Given Minerva’s geographically distributed model, this means you will work on a small team of remote Coaches and Career Success experts with students across multiple time zones. As a result, a significant amount of your work with students will occur virtually.
Location and Travel: Although we are open to candidates based anywhere in the world, we have a preference for those based in the San Francisco region. This role may require some international travel, likely 1-2 trips during the academic year to the rotation cities in order to add an in-person component to your work with the students and participate in milestone events with our students and professional partners.
Focus Areas: While we believe coaching does not require domain expertise (e.g., academic discipline, industry or job function), we are looking for a coach who has experience, expertise, or strong interest in working with students pursuing careers in the Arts & Humanities, Natural Sciences, and/or Social Sciences. Many of these students aim to start their careers in research, nonprofits, government agencies, the arts, and/or social enterprises.
