The answer is simple. You've only been contacted by a few colleges of a population of thousands. TalentSpotlight.net is about opening doors to new possibilities and providing students the tools to effectively communicate their talents to colleges and universities worldwide. More exposure brings more opportunities ... more opportunities should yield better opportunities. It is your future and you and your families investment in that future. Examine ALL of the possibilities!
For the same reason you would utilize this service as a prospective major in a performance arts discipline ... exposure! Colleges are in the business of "filling seats". Marching bands and college choirs aren't made up exclusively of music majors. Theatre and dance productions many times include non-majors. Talent awards are available in many instances for those participants majoring in other areas. The choice of a college is perhaps the first major decision a young person will make in their life. TalentSpotlight.net exists to offer students and parents as many options and opportunities as possible.
As one with recruiting responsibilities at the college level, you probably spend a tremendous amount of your time doing just that ... recruiting. Lots of time on the road visiting local high schools, hoping alumni will direct students your way, wondering who might show up on scheduled audition dates, etc. That represents a significant amount of time you would probably prefer to spend doing what you do best ... educating!
Now, if you will, imagine your recruiting opportunities just a click away on your lap top. Imagine having access to an incredible data base of students worldwide looking for opportunities in the performing arts at the college level. Imagine searching for students using specifically designed search options. Imagine viewing students' academic history, awards and achievements, listening to video and audio presentations and much more!! No need to imagine any longer. Your registration with TalentSpotlight.net is just a click away and it's FREE to all colleges and universities.
Of course you can! Some students go to extreme lengths to create exposure for themselves. Before you take on that task ask yourself these questions; What is my time worth? How can I possibly acquaint myself with enough college programs to know who and how to invite them to my web page? And most important, can I possibly do for myself what TalentSpotlight.net can do for me for such a nominal fee? In most instances you can utilize all the benefits of TalentSpotlight.net for less than the cost of completing just one college application.
Absolutely none! TalentSpotlight.net is simply a platform that enables talented students and colleges to discover and interact with one another. Ultimately it is your ability, among many factors, that determines the quantity and quality of scholarship opportunities offered to you.
