At the core of every outstanding Compass experience is an outstanding Compass program director. Our program directors lead our efforts to deliver exceptional value to Compass’s clients and tutors.
Program directors play the critical role of developing and maintaining relationships with our clients and instructors. Their activities are focused around consultative sales, attentive program management, customer guidance and care, supervision of our tutor staff, and relationship cultivation within a broad referral-based community. Every client’s test preparation program is crafted and managed by a Compass program director and every Compass tutor is hired, trained, mentored, supervised, and supported by our program director team.
The Ideal Candidate:
At Compass, our program directors stand out not only for what they do but also for how they think. We ask for conscientious and consistent effort to align daily actions with our ethical standards and long term goals. We expect that a program director’s contribution will increase over time with an expanding breadth and depth of experience and expertise, more and higher stakes responsibilities, and by assuming leadership roles.
While handling the busy demands of a routine day, our program directors are guided by the longview aspect of their roles. This is revealed in their client conversations, the details in their work, their decision making, and in the way they talk about Compass. They make a consistently positive impression on everyone they meet. They are experienced, empathetic, wise, trustworthy, sensible, fair, honest, engaged, and needed.
We strive to make our program directors feel confident and secure, trusted and supported. We look for hard working team players who want to invest long term and who will make the most of an investment in them. Program directors are central figures at Compass but part of a much larger full-time team that provides mentoring, strategic leadership, administrative and operational support, and cutting-edge tech tools. Program directors are given the help – and the autonomy – they need to succeed.
While this is a sales position, ours is not a typical sales culture. We keep the client’s needs at the center of every conversation and let the appropriate recommendation emerge from there.
Compensation, Benefits, and Intangibles:

We value thoughtful cover letters and will give priority to candidates who demonstrate interest in this way. Please note that we are unable to accommodate unscheduled drop-ins or phone calls.
