Student Athletes

Students who participate in athletics experience demands on their time that include practice, conditioning, travel time to away games, missed classes, and sometimes recovery and therapy resulting from injuries.

Despite these complicating factors, student-athletes have a unique skillset that they can provide to employers. Some of the transferable skills that student-athletes have developed through athletic participation include:

leadership communication
teamwork motivation
organizational skills time management
ethics and proper conduct problem-solving skills
coping skills execution skills

This site, specifically for student-athletes,  provides job postings for athletics (approx. 99%) and non-athletics (approx. 1%), as well as content geared toward assisting student athletes.

While this page specifies that it is for non-athletes, this could be a valuable resource for student athletes that could assist them in getting careers related to their sport (that aren’t playing careers). The information serves as excellent cursory information to these fields, and provides a thorough list of resources in addition.
