Hobsons’ New Tool Connects High School Counselors With College Admissions Officers

May 25, 2017

MATCHMAKING: There are many online tools that aim to help students find the right college; these schools also spend plenty of money on recruiting services. Now there’s something for counselors. Hobsons has launched a new tool, Intersect, that aims to connect high school counselors with admissions officers at higher-ed institutions.

Through these relationships, Hobsons hopes counselors can better understand college admission requirements and relay that information to their students. Another feature is a scheduling tool that can help college admissions officers schedule visits to K-12 schools.

“As colleges and universities work to recruit a broad spectrum of students, they are increasingly looking at high school counselors as their partners in identifying and connecting with students who are not only eligible for admission,” Hobsons states in a press release, “but who are more likely to thrive and succeed on campus, improving college retention and graduation rates as well as increasing student satisfaction and employability.”
