10 Reasons Why Your Recruiting Efforts Might Be Falling Short

by Jeremy Tiers, Director of Admissions Services It happened this year not only to first-year admissions counselors but also some veteran ones - They didn’t reach their enrollment goals for their territory or demographic. Many of you are worried. I know because you’ve talked with me about it. Something went wrong this recruiting cycle and you’re not exactly sure what, or why. You just know that it can’t be the same result with this next class of students. Recruiting (which is really selling, remember) is an essential duty and responsibility in just about every single admissions/enrollment counselor’s job description. If you don’t recruit well, you might not keep your job. And even if they let you keep your job, it’s no fun going to work everyday unhappy and feeling like you’re...

by Mike Davenport, CoachingSportsToday.com A superhero movie is always playing in our local theater. I grab the kids and go because those movies are fun and exciting. But they’re fiction.

The Secret Weapon of Your Recruitment Campaign, and Why It Works

by Jeremy Tiers, Director of Admissions Services A couple of weeks ago our family added more sports equipment to the bin. The newest additions are a helmet, bat, glove, ball and cleats. Oh and a special bag of course, because how else is my almost 7-year old daughter going to carry all that stuff to softball practice. Over the past 15 months or so my daughter has tried her hand at gymnastics, soccer, basketball, and now softball. Each time right at the start the same thing has happened. She gets frustrated because she isn’t immediately able to score every goal, make every shot, or hit a pitch that’s not sitting on a tee. The late Jim Rohn – entrepreneur, author and motivational speaker — has said, “Success is neither magical nor...
