NextPlay, a trusted provider of comprehensive career success programs for collegiate athletes, will be offering free online workshops and free one-on-one career development consulting services to student-athletes of all levels indefinitely.
“The uniquely challenging circumstances of this moment- and the temporary absence of sports in our lives- require that we focus on our mission now more than ever.” Said NextPlay Founder and CEO, Kyle Mumma. “The free resources that we are providing will allow administrators to focus on day-to-day crisis management while we fill a supporting role to ensure that athletes can continue to build their knowledge, skills, network, and confidence for life after sports.”
Workshops will be led by NextPlay team members and guest speakers with expertise in various fields, and presentations will cover a wide variety of topics. Due to the unusual nature of the ongoing COVID-19 situation, content in these workshops will be specifically curated to address the needs of current student-athletes as they navigate this uncharted territory.
The goal of these workshops is to focus on solving COVID-19 specific challenges so that we can continue to build confident and employable student-athletes by delivering actionable strategies within topics such as:
Navigating a struggling job market
Perfecting virtual and phone interviews
Strategies for remote networking
Perspectives from former athletes
Sessions will be conducted via Zoom on Thursdays at 5:30 pm ET, and then again at 5:30 pm PT to present viable attendance options for athletes from coast to coast. Each session will be capped at 100 participants and space will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Additional information and registration links will be available on social media and sent out via email.
One-on-one career development coaching services can be requested through the NextPlay website or by reaching out via email at email@example.com.
