One of the most stressful times as a parent is preparing your child for college. While this can be a fun time for the child it is a headache for the parent. The last thing a parent needs is to be working with a college recruiter that doesn't have a college recruiter answering service.
The education industry is a multi-billion dollar a year business. The true professionals in the industry utilize a college recruiter answering service. Parents turn to a college recruiter to help navigate college costs, locations, education and proper fit for their child. Parents have many questions about this process. They want the questions answered in a timely manner. If no one is available to take the call, the answering service is available to. The operators can take the call and schedule a call back time convenient for recruiter and the parent. The service can also field questions from prospective students. This way they are better prepared to call the parents back. Most parents do not have the time or money to waste on missed calls and voicemails. In many cases both parents are employed full time, so time and timing are very important.
Choosing a college is a decision for both parents and their child. While getting everyone on the same page is difficult, the service will coordinate everyone's schedule. This is all done at the cost of using an answering service (which is usually a few dollars a day), and not having to pay a receptionist saving you both time and money. Most answering services are open 7 days a week 24 hours a day. Education professionals get many their calls during the evening and weekends. As a recruiter you don't want to miss that initial call.
Once a parent makes the decision to hire a college recruiter, they do it quick.
If there is not a 24 hour option in place to manage phone calls, the recruiter will miss the call, and the parent will call another professional. Voicemail is convenient but many times the automation is not good enough to capture leads, concerns, or just basic phone calls. The parent wants to relax by knowing they are getting help in the college decision. This service will also provide with excellent customer satisfaction. A satisfied parent will probably recommend you to some of their friends. Their friends probably have children getting close to that college search age. It is amazing at how a business can grow by hiring an answering service.
