INDEPENDENT EDUCATIONAL CONSULTANTS (IEC) ARE:
Because IECs aren't tied to any particular school or school calendar, they are available to work after school, in the evenings and on the weekends. Much of their most important work occurs over the summer months getting seniors ready for the fall application season.
Deadlines are key in the world of college admissions, so Consultants have to respond promptly to emails, phone calls and, yes, texts.
Consultants spend significant time visiting college campuses and attending professional workshops, conferences and college fairs. It's virtually impossible to get a feel for the uniqueness of a particular college without visiting on a regular basis.
Reputable IEC's maintain memberships in organizations such at HECA, IECA, NACAC or local NACAC affiliates, all of which require specialized education and experience and a commitment to continuing education.
Most IECs work locally with students in their surrounding communities and must familiarize themselves with individual school district policies and academic offerings.
Consultants subscribe to specific Principles of Good Practice governing the actions of educational consultants in their relationships with students and families, schools and colleges, and with colleagues.
