Hear about this three-part program from webcast speaker, Kent Barnds.
Training of new Admissions counselors is often, out of necessity, much too hurried and perfunctory. The training that new counselors receive has historically been focused on the everyday duties of the job (travel, reading and processing applications, CRM systems, etc.), accompanied by lots of “just in time” training where other key competencies are concerned. But in today’s intensely competitive environment, it is no longer sufficient to let your Admissions counselors go out and begin recruiting for you without having adequate training on key, all-important soft skills.
Join us for a trio of online training programs that will help get your new and entry-level Admissions counselors up to speed. These three 45-minute webcast sessions are focused on strengthening universal core competencies that all Admissions counselors must possess in order to be successful in their roles:
To match your fast-paced schedule, we have deliberately designed these trainings to be brief, but powerful. Each 45-minute webcast is jam-packed with practical information from start to finish.
We also realize that hands-on, experiential training is very important for new Admissions counselors, so each webcast is accompanied by a robust collection of resources and practice activities that are designed to help you apply what you have learned.
These webcasts have been specifically designed for use in the training of new or entry-level Admissions counselors. We encourage you to purchase copies of the webcast recordings and add these to your training library so you can use them to onboard new hires well into the future.
