StudentLinkUp and Conversation Team Up to Create Educational Recruitment Tool
New website promises to introduce a completely new experience for the high school and college application and admission process
NEW YORK, May 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Conversation is happy to announce its integral role in the development, launch and promotion of StudentLinkUp, a social platform designed to help students, their support network and educators more easily navigate the educational research, recruiting, and application process.
StudentLinkUp approached Conversation in February 2012, seeking help from the Manhattan-based agency to create their brand identity, positioning and business strategy. Conversation will be heavily involved in development of the platform and user experience, planning and execution of the promotional rollout and ultimately building awareness for the brand, educating audience segments about StudentLinkUp's capabilities and converting users.
"The possibilities for StudentLinkUp are endless," says Conversation Account Executive Allison Amato. "It's not just about recruitment - it's about making the best possible matches for students and the schools to help both parties get to the next level." The site will offer students and parents the ability to reach out to coaches, program directors, and admissions officers directly, to explore opportunities and showcase their achievements within academics, athletics, the arts, and community involvement. While other talent recruitment sites and application resources currently exist, there are none that bring all of these sectors together in one centralized location like StudentLinkUp will.
"We are seeking to partner with some of the big players that already work in this space," says StudentLinkUp President Jeff Mead. "We're looking to create the centralized hub where a variety of different tools can be aggregated to make it easier for users to get the most out of these available resources."
The current site, http://www.studentlinkup.com, allows students, parents, guidance counselors, coaches and other educators to sign up for updates about the full site launch - currently set for August.
