Gil Rogers joins the show for a valuable conversation about networking opportunities for college admissions and high school counseling professionals. In this show we discuss networking both on and off-line, highlighting trends and best practices, personal branding strategies, this year’s conferences to attend and much more.
While you may know Gil as a member of the Zinch team, who are sponsors of Admissions Live, our decision to have him on was entirely our own. We really wanted a chance to talk with him about networking efforts both from his own experience in higher education and the efforts that he is making at Zinch with their social admissions campaign.

Topics discussed during the LIVE broadcast include:
Online vs. Offline Networking
