It’s essential that you immediately reach out to and develop a relationship with your prospective students, but your institution may not have the resources or processes in place to systematically contact and move prospects through the pipeline. The process of immediate and regular prospect follow-up often overwhelms staff and creates priority conflicts.
The role of AnswerNet Education Services enrollment counselors is to build relationships with prospects, learn their academic and personal backgrounds and goals, educate them about your institution, walk them through required processes and motivate them to apply and enroll. Your enrollment counselors can now focus on admission decisions, increasing their productivity and improving morale.
Your enrollment team is dedicated to your account. They become the face of your institution, immersing themselves to understand your institution, programs and culture. At the beginning of our relationship with you, our enrollment counselors visit your institution, meet and train with your team and display campus items in their work areas with great pride. Our counselors hold Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees so they are able to connect with prospects. And counselors love working with prospects and working here – we’re proud of our over 90% staff retention rate!
