PREVIOUS STAFF ANSWERING "WHY I WORK AT CAMP"
We asked them to share – in their own handwriting – why they chose to work at camp and why they would come back.
Increased web traffic
From the launch of the campaign we saw a huge increase of site views of the landing page, and increased views of our product pages.
With thoughtful planning we worked hard to optimize our site from the beginning. The web page became positioned at the top when googling "camp jobs"
We saw a jump in applicants after the launch of the campaign in both in-person recruiting and through website visits. We were able to then focus on specific roles that needed to be filled rather than general recruiting.
Increased Brand Awareness
By tracking our site views and utilizing the percentage of first time applicants that had never heard of Mount Hermon, we were able to determine an increase in brand awareness through local and out of state applications.
Increased Social Media Following
With this campaign we increased our social media following by 32% over a single recruiting season. Our Instagram channels grew by +432 followers
THE LANDING PAGE
The landing page was in the midst of full company re-brand. We were able to utilize the tools and brand guide we created during the overhaul and refresh our recruiting page
