We also offer a flat 25% discount if you present two or more sessions with a faculty member, a member of your career services, or your student/alumni as a panelist for all sessions. We highly recommend this because, in addition to school counselors, we also invite students and parents for these sessions.

What is the recommended structure and content of the webinar?
Conversational and non-salesy. To ensure this, we mutually decide the topic. Our goal is to present you to our network of high school counselors as a resource person who added value, not the marketing person who tried to sell her university program.
