NCAA to Provide Sports Networking Event in Indy

sports networkingHave you ever wanted to work for the NCAA, potentially for a Division I, II, or III school?

Have you been trying everything in your power to make the right network connections to accomplish this?

Well, the NCAA is here to help you and will provide education on career development and potential career opportunities for nearly 300 student-athletes from Divisions I, II and III at the NCAA Career in Sports Forum, June 8-11 in Indianapolis.

The 300 student-athletes who were selected for the Career in Sports Forum were chosen by a committee made up of administrators from member institutions, conference offices and affiliate member organizations. Also included are the 2013-14 Ethnic Minority & Women’s Enhancement Postgraduate Scholarship recipients.

According to an NCAA press release, the forum will focus on assisting student-athletes with making a successful transition from competition to their future professions in intercollegiate athletics.

The Career in Sports Forum will bring career leaders together to discuss their professional career paths while enlightening and encouraging student-athletes on career choices and future decisions they’ll need to consider.

Session topics include: discussion on skills sets needed to perform at the highest level, nontraditional careers in athletics, best practices in athletics administration, personal and professional branding, resources for applying to graduate school, and human resource hiring processes.

There will also be team-building sessions where the student-athletes are put in smaller groups to discuss key issues and take leadership roles amongst their peers. The student-athletes will also engage in dialogue with senior administrators from the NCAA national office and will have a formal networking dinner with NCAA administrators.

The NCAA will not be accepting any more student-athletes for this year’s forum, but be aware that this type of conference exists and look into becoming one of the selected few in the coming years or take a gander at one of their other beneficial programs.

In addition to the Career in Sports Forum, the NCAA hosts a wide array of programming designed to enhance skills sets and prepare student-athletes and administrators for leadership opportunities.

The NCAA Leadership Development group oversees the leadership and grant programs, along with the development of various types of membership resources.
