A number of studies indicate that the vast majority of businesses want to hire college athletes. Most employers associate student-athletes with the traits they are looking for in prospective employees—qualities like drive, entrepreneurship, strong work ethic, and knowing how to work as a team.
Join Skidmore’s Athletic Department and the CDC for a special program, Champions for Hire: Why Employers Seek Athletes, in which a panel of professionals, including Skidmore alumni, share the many reasons employers seek college athletes. Network with the panelists, learn how to best market your athletic experiences, and identify transferable skills to include on resumes, cover letters, and while interviewing.
