Hobsons, the leader in education technology and company behind Naviance, Intersect, and Starfish, announced today the culmination and success of its 2019 Summer Internship Program. Across Hobsons’ Arlington and Cincinnati office locations, 20 college students gained firsthand experience over 10 weeks, working in various departments across all three product lines.
Erica White, the school counselor who founded RepVisits.com and now serves as a Product Manager at Hobsons, explains how building relationships with those on the other side of the desk helped her students enroll in colleges where they would thrive and reach their educational goals.

When counselors and advisors on “both sides of the desk” can work together more easily and efficiently, students benefit from better information about colleges and higher quality college planning conversations.
