The Career Enhancement program is a portion of the Student-Athlete Enrichment Programs and works in conjunction with the Michelin Career Center to assist student-athletes in the development of skills necessary to fulfill their goals and compete in the professional world following graduation.
Programs range from career assessment when first enrolled to having a marketable résumé upon graduation. Career development workshops such as résumé and cover letter writing, job search skills, interviewing, and financial planning are offered to the student-athletes. An alumni panel also informs them about life after college in graduate school, the work place, or professional athletics.
Individual career services are also offered to the student-athletes. Career counseling, career assessments, résumé and cover letter critique, job/internship search, and mock interviews are among the services available. The Career Enhancement program partners with the Michelin Career Center every spring and fall semester to host a career fair for all students.
The goal of the program is for all student-athletes to succeed in the classroom, on the playing field, and following graduation. We assist in finding part-time employment and internships so the student-athletes can gain hands-on experience prior to the completion of a degree. We work directly with our compliance office to maintain that all programs abide and are conducted within NCAA legislation. These programs are designed to assist in the student-athlete’s career development.
