Erica White, the school counselor who founded RepVisits.com and now serves as a Product Manager at Hobsons, explains how building relationships with those on the other side of the desk helped her students enroll in colleges where they would thrive and reach their educational goals.
Hobsons is introducing a new community to help school counselors and college admissions officers network more effectively. We believe that creating close working relationships and simplifying connections between professionals "on both sides of the desk" can be a huge benefit to students. Join us for this webinar to learn more about the Hobsons Counselor Community - what it is, what it means for you and your students, and how you can participate.
School counselors and college admissions staff are both critical to supporting students looking to identify and enroll in best-fit colleges. When counselors and advisors on “both sides of the desk” can work together more easily and efficiently, students benefit from better information about colleges and higher quality college planning conversations.
“Best fit” is a term often tossed around these days in relation to student recruitment. It is a worthy aspiration, but what does it really mean and how can you achieve it? For a choice to be best fit certain things need to be in place.
Join Amy Reitz, Director of Product Management for Matching Solutions, to learn how Hobsons is helping universities move from marketing to matching in the college admission process and building tools to foster better collaboration between high schools and higher education institutions.

Stop the fluff! With all of today’s growing pressures on higher education admissions teams, it is more important than ever that recruitment messaging stays concrete, honest, and unique. It’s time for institutions to find their true voices, leverage their uniqueness, and communicate it to prospective students for serious consideration.
There are plenty of statistics and strategies floating around today to help institutions decide what communication channels are most effective and how to increase response rates. But, reports have shown that student communication preferences aren’t very clear and they’ll respond to an array of communications from institutions.
Thanks to technology like smartphones and tablets that makes searching the internet easy and engaging, the expected online experience for students is changing. It doesn’t matter whether a student is buying a pair of shoes – or a college education – today’s generation expects short, instant and relevant information delivered in a way that meets individual wants, needs and lifestyle.
