Jared Woolworth • University Advisor • Ashford University
My name is Jared Woolworth, and I am a University Advisor for Ashford University. Prior to Ashford, I worked as a Marketing Coordinator for Billabong in Irvine, California and I also worked in the marketing department at Liquid Force Wakeboards. I applied at Ashford because I heard there was a lot of opportunity for growth within the company – and it was located in San Diego.

I was hired in December 2009 as an Admissions Counselor, and found that I was right about there being opportunities. There are many different programs that are offered to employees, including the education tuition program and professional development opportunities. I am currently attending Ashford University and pursuing my Master of Business Administration with a specialization in Organizational Leadership, and I am involved in the Future Leaders Program. If you work hard, you will have the opportunity for personal growth, as well as the opportunity for advancement within the company.
In May 2010, I was promoted to Lead Military Admissions Counselor. My job was to contact military students all over the world to let them know about the great benefits Ashford University offers through the military grant. I also advised these students on tuition assistance and the GI Bill and educated them on which benefits to use. I really enjoyed helping our military personnel change their lives – I know that by receiving a quality education they can find a good job when they separate from the service, and they can have the opportunity for promotion while still in the service.
When I was in my second month on the job, I received an email from one of my students who had written an essay in his first course about the people in his life who were most supportive of him. He thanked me for helping him return to school; he told me he would not have gone back at all if it weren’t for me. I still have that email. In it, the student included a portion of his essay: “Jared helps me stay motivated. There is not a week that goes by without me finding emails in my inbox with nothing but positive comments like, ‘Congratulations, you made it through another week,’ or ‘Keep up the good work.’ I know it’s his job, but it is still motivating to read or hear things like that. It makes you want to keep pressing forward and stay focused. That’s what supportive people do. They keep pushing you to better your life.” That’s why I love this job.
