The pros and cons of the traditional recruiting channels
The directrecruitment channel
Your recruitment team is a reservoir of knowledge and are great promoters of your educational institution. They know the courses, programs, entry requirements, and the many compelling advantages that your education institution and destination offer.
Successful applicants through the direct channel do not involve commissions to a third party.
Most, if not all, educational institutions are limited in the assistance they can provide with application, visas, and admittance, and therefore students will commonly use agents to finalise the process.
The agentrecruitment channel
Agents provide superior assistance with applications and visas as they are much closer to the aspiring student, share a common first language or culture and are in the same time zone. Agents ensure students complete the required forms and submit the required documents on time. Agents can also promote the provider to prospective students when they may not know it exists.
Agent commissions can be expensive. The provider does not have direct contact with the student and progression of enrolment is not transparent with little control.
The Sofiri recruit 360 recruitment program
The best of both channels
Imagine having a branded mobile recruitment mobile and web app that aspiring students use to connect with a dedicated local counsellor who recruits solely for your institution. In addition to providing knowledgeable advice about programs and courses, the counsellor also assists prospect students with their applications and visa processes reducing the likelihood that they will seek the assistance of an agent. Now imagine that this counsellor is an extension of your recruitment team, and Sofiri’s proprietary communication platform can be used by your staff to monitor the application process and even connect directly with the aspiring student should they choose to do so.
Sofiri Recruit 360
makes this all happen. The branded mobile and web applications, the communication and monitoring platform, the marketing campaigns, as well as the local counsellor allow recruitment and enrolment of the right mix of students from countries/regions that you target. And for much less than you pay the traditional agent channel.
