Hobsons recently surveyed 224 admissions counselors to get their perspective of life on the road. Road warriors from all over the country provided their insights on high school visits, lunch room visits, interactions with high school counselors and students, as well as travel habits throughout the season. Admissions professionals also provided advice for school counselors who host visits on their campus.
Some of the key facts from the survey include:
- Over 60% of high school visits by admissions counselors happen over the lunch period.
- Two-thirds of admissions counselors report working 9-12 hours per day.
- Positive interactions with school counselors have an impact on initial and return visits scheduled.
- Professional association conferences are a main source of networking for admissions counselors
