CollegeFindMe Launches College Recruitment Network

CollegeFindMe has launched a new web-based platform designed to facilitate the college application and recruitment process for high school students, guidance counselors and college admissions officers.

Students can create a personal profile on the site, including college preferences, academic achievements, extracurricular activities and artifacts related to their experiences. They then have the option of searching for colleges using the CFMe Search, College Scorecard or College Navigator search engines. The platform offers students "the opportunity to present themselves fully, rather than relying only on a standardized test score or letter of recommendation," said Christina Bai, founder and CEO of CollegeFindMe, in a prepared statement.

High school guidance counselors can use the interface's built-in tracking and reporting tools to help them support their students during the college admissions process. The site also gives them access to college information and news feeds. CollegeFindMe accounts are free for both students and guidance counselors.

On the other side, admissions officers can search student profiles to identify those who best meet their admissions criteria and philosophy. "Admissions officers have a direct channel to student candidates, allowing them to personalize fee waivers, scholarship opportunities, college tours and other offers," stated a news release from the company.

CollegeFindMe is hosting its first annual conference on Sept. 21 in Cambridge, MA. Details and registration information can be found on EventBrite.

Further information about the platform itself can be found on the CollegeFindMe site.
