About Our Founder & CEO
Hey there! I’m Kaneisha Grayson, and I’m the founder and CEO of The Art of Applying®. I’m a 2006 graduate of Pomona College, and a 2010 graduate of Harvard Business School and Harvard Kennedy School.
I grew up in a low-income, high-crime neighborhood in Austin, Texas. My parents grew up as migrant farmworkers in Florida, and they were first-generation college graduates. I am a first-generation professional (meaning first generation in my family to go to graduate school) and I plan to be a first-generation multimillionaire.
I started The Art of Applying in my Harvard apartment in 2010. It’s since grown from just me and a laptop to a purposeful, profitable, and process-driven thriving business.
My team and I help high-achieving students and professionals from around the world apply to the world’s top graduate schools to study business, public policy, law, urban planning, public health, education, and design.
Apply to join our team if you have these qualities:
- You are available to work about 10-15 hours per week. This is not currently a full-time role. We can work on a schedule together.
- You love social media. You enjoy engaging with people on Facebook, Instagram, and making people feel welcome.
- You value education. You don’t need fancy degrees for this position, but you cannot be a person who thinks that college or grad school is a waste of time.
- You are a positive person. You know how to find the good in challenging situations.
- You have a resourceful, “can do” attitude. You are solution-oriented and a self starter.
- You like engaging with people. You know how to connect and communicate with people you cannot see face-to-face. This is a position where you will be responding to messages and comments often.
- You like people. You do not have to be an extrovert for this position, but you must like helping and connecting with people on a 1-on-1 basis.
- You are a person who follows through on your commitments. You don’t jump ship or give up when things get hard.
- You are detail-oriented and methodical. Each person who contacts us will be with a different person with their own particular story, triumphs, and challenges, but there will be a standard of communication that you must stick to for each correspondence.
- You have consistent access to reliable internet and a quiet place to work. Our team is remote, so you’ll need your own laptop and reliable internet connection.
