Aggressive College Advisors
By 2018, 62 percent of jobs in Michigan will require education beyond high school, but currently only 36.8 percent of Michigan adults, ages 25-64, hold an Associate degree or higher. Given these statistics, our full-time college advisors are on a mission: leverage their continuous training and relationships with recruiters to give every Hazel Park student a place to learn and grow after graduation.
How do they do it? The advisors start at the beginning of each school year, meeting one-on-one with juniors and seniors to help them find colleges, universities or trade schools that best meet their goals and needs, using an approach called Match & Fit. Then the advisors aggressively help students find potential scholarships and grants, complete financial aid forms, fill out admissions applications, arrange for college/university tours, and introduce students to recruiters.
And when they’re not talking to upperclassmen, they’re “planting the seeds” with the rest of the student body to motivate and inspire, working tirelessly to help every student find a path to success.
