The AfterSport Group offers services geared toward preparing athletes to transition from the locker room to the boardroom. Through workshops, individual coaching sessions, and online services, the AfterSport Group provides its clients with the tools that assist them with transitions throughout their athletic and professional careers.
The AfterSport Group conducts on-campus workshops geared towards preparing student-athletes for successful performance beyond the arena. The workshops focus on subjects such as career mapping, interviewing, business etiquette and networking. The presentations are very interactive which provide students with the opportunity to learn from each other in addition to the presenters.
The immediate impact of this method is that the students can use these tools and techniques during on campus events (formal and informal) as well as to begin building networks that will be vital to them throughout their careers. The future impact is that the same tools and techniques can be used during future interviews, business networking and career progression.
Each student is different and has his/her own individual developmental needs. Therefore, the AfterSport Group offers individual consultations (in-person or over the phone) for those who would like additional detail related to the topics related to career development. The direction of the meeting is determined by the student, who will have the option to discuss a variety of topics related to career development. Additionally, students that take advantage of this service may have the opportunity to speak directly with someone in their area of career or graduate school interest.
The immediate impact of this approach is customized guidance, which directly addresses the student’s individual needs. The long-term impact is that the guidance can be used and built upon for interviews, business networking and career progression. Additionally, the students will be part of a national network of current and former student-athletes that are willing to help each other.
The AfterSport Group offers comprehensive online services through its AfterSport Group Career Development Portal. The portal provides clients with a variety of tools to assist them in finding the right career path. The range of tools is broad as they include products such as a global job board, resume writing tools, correspondence tools, networking tips, and assessment tools.
The immediate impact of the portal is that it gives students 24 hour access to career development information anywhere they have an Internet connection. Additionally, the information can be used during on campus events (formal and informal) and building vital networks. The future impact is that the same tools and techniques can be used during future interviews, business networking and career progression.
