Additional Resources

 

"Our athletes need to be thinking ahead; they need to be thinking about ways to gain experience in their field of interest to see what it actually entails. They can shadow someone at work for a day, or do an informational interview to gain more knowledge about a life in the day of an employee or what steps that employee took to get there”...
