  • Registration Closed


Phonathon programs are increasingly focused on quality over quantity when it comes to their student callers. Turnover is expensive, so it's important to hire students who will not only be effective on the phones, but who will stick around and grow with the program each year that they are in school. While every institution's structure, needs, and culture are unique, an exceptional calling staff is the best way to keep your call center full, motivated, and productive.

Register now to learn how to recruit and retain high quality callers for your student phonathon program.
