Why is networking important?
As you transition from sport, you will learn the great benefits from networking! You enter into a world of people who want to connect with you.
Expanding your network allows you to:
“As a former athlete, you have a built-in advantage in explaining why you are special. Weaving a tidbit or two into your elevator pitch about what you learned and what you accomplished as an athlete will make your pitch more powerful and memorable.”
“Be able to articulate in an interview how the rigorous physical and mental demands you faced and the skills you developed as a student-athlete correlate to a certain position. From my experience as corporate counsel, the business world is much like the world of sports - fast-paced, challenging, and rewarding. Utilize your unique leadership background to bring folks together and operate on the same team”
