SERVICES FOR ATHLETES:
Career Services for Athletes strives to provide the highest quality comprehensive career services to all varsity athletes at the University of Delaware. Keeping in mind that athletes have extremely demanding schedules and can’t always attend university wide events or career fairs, services for athletes such as individual or group career counseling appointments, workshops, networking nights, athlete resume book participation, interview preparation, shadowing opportunities, etc. are planned in ways in which athletes are able to attend.
Athletes who play a Division I sport develop many transferable skills that crossover very well into the world of work. It is important to learn how to market these skills in a resume and cover letter, or in an interview. Here are just a few of the qualities that athletes possess that employers desire:
-Performing under pressure
-Making quick decisions
-Playing your role

"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”...
