Julissa S. Germosen is the Founder and CEO of Germosen Education Advisors, an academic coaching, college admission counseling and career coaching consulting firm. Julissa has had a rewarding and successful 20-year career in the technology industry including working with Microsoft, Salesforce and technology start-ups. 

At Microsoft, Julissa partnered with government leaders, educators and students in the USA and around the world, discussing the educational requirements and skills students need in order to successfully compete in the global economy. It was this work with educational leaders and education NGOs at Salesforce.org that drove her desire to help students through the increasingly complex college admissions and early career process.

With a background in technology, edtech and nonprofits coupled with a desire to help students make the best fit college decisions, Germosen Education Advisors is born. 

Because of an almost 20 year career in the technology industry,  we approach college admissions and career planning from a practical perspective. In addition to guiding students through each step of the college application and admission process, we do so while also developing and honing skills future employers and hiring managers look for. We consider Executive Functioning, Confidence, Branding, Speaking, Teamwork, Influencing, Social Media, and Professional Presence. Developing these skills are essential for success in high school, college and beyond.

For current college students and recent graduates, we advise those looking for meaningful first jobs, internships and additional skills-building learning not available at colleges and universities. This is the individualized path from college to career.
