If you want to work in intercollegiate athletics, or you’re a young administrator who wants to advance in the industry, and you’ll be at the NACDA and affiliates convention in Orlando in a couple of weeks, you won’t want to miss this opportunity! Senior-level administrators and hiring managers can review your cover letter and resume and even engage you in a mock interview in this great (free!) session at convention.
Who: Young Administrators & Students
What: Young Administrators Cover Letter and Resume Review and Mock Interviews
When: Tuesday & Wednesday, June 10-11 (3-5 pm)
Where: NACDA & Affiliates Convention, World Center Marriott Resort (Orlando, FL), Denver & Chicago Rooms
Young administrators and students registered to attend the Convention can sign up to have their cover letter and resume reviewed in one-on-one coaching sessions, to participate in a mock interview or both. The following individuals will be participating as reviewers:
- Mary Pink, Associate Athletics Director for Marketing & Promotions, Iowa State University
- Tracie Hitz, Director of Business Operations (Women’s Basketball), NCAA
- Trip Durham, CEO of 2D Consulting and Duke public address announcer
- Zack Lassiter, Senior Associate Athletic Director – External Relations, University of Central Florida
- Jeff Bain, Athletic Director, Martin Methodist College
- Brian Reed, Assistant AD, Human Resources/Risk Management, University of Central Florida
- April Taylor, Senior Associate Director of Compliance/Student-Athlete Services, Jacksonville University
A reviewer will be assigned to each attendee with the goal of pairing the attendee with someone they do not already know. This will enable the attendee to receive advice and coaching based solely on his/her materials, much in the same way he/she would be judged by a potential employer with no past knowledge of their work.
Sessions will be scheduled every half hour from 3-5 p.m. on both Tuesday, June 10th and Wednesday, June 11th.
How to Register:
