Hobsons to focus on college and career readiness, best-fit matching, and student success and analytics
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.
Hobsons’ enquiry management and offer conversion services have reduced the number of incomplete applications, improved the open and click-through rates of email marketing communications, and most importantly increased conversion from offer to enrolment, to deliver maximum return on investment.
