Why Your Company Needs to Hire Varsity Athletes (By Stephanie Rudnick, May 2016)
It is the end of may, and thousands of student athletes are completing their final exams and graduating from university. If you are an employer, then whatever your recruiting period is you need to consider making a serious push to recruit and hire graduating student athletes.
While many of these athletes may have little work experience, what they do have is their passion and their work habits, which they have poured into building their athletic careers for the last 20 years. Now they are eager to figure out where to pour all their passion and apply their work ethic.
11 Reasons why you need to hire a past varsity athlete?
Setting goals, maintaining clear focus, working with a team and working under pressure, leading and motivating others, working hard consistently—these are some of the skills that athletes have been practicing for years, and now they are ready to transfer all of their passion, intensity, and hard work into your business.
Don’t be fooled when you see lack of work experience on an athlete’s resume. The experience that she or he has had on the court or on the field has prepared them well for solid success in the working world.
They may have played their last game, but it’s not all over for them.
For them the game of life is just beginning.
So harness the power of sport and find yourself an athlete to help take your business to a whole new level.
Because Life is a Sport, and I know you both want to win.
