The Student-Athlete Career Mixer is an interactive, information sharing event. It is a chance for our student-athletes to gain knowledge of companies, interact with alumni, network with professionals, and get the “insider” information lacking in the traditional career fair model. In addition to serving as a networking opportunity between student-athlete and professional, the mixer component is designed to provide an open and conversational exchange of information. We encourage our student-athletes to ask questions they typically would not in other standard career fairs.
The Student-Athlete Career Mixer is held early in the Fall semester. It averages about 25 companies from various fields and who are looking for various disciplines. The Mixer offers the chance for our student-athletes to obtain an array of career opportunities including job shadowing, informational meetings, internships and full-time positions. The Mixer serves as a source for discussion, connection, and interview/initial screening of potential candidates.
