Kansas Athletics is dedicated to providing exceptional career coaching to all current student-athletes. Our staff is committed to educating and preparing our student-athletes for life after competition by providing resources and networking opportunities that ultimately lead to jobs and internships.
We accomplish these goals by offering career education through whole group seminars, small group career meetings and in the classroom through an Athletics section of PRE 210, Career and Life Planning.
Our staff also understands the importance of networking, and we make every effort to organize events that allow current student-athletes to interact with former student-athletes and donors in the community and across Jayhawk Nation.
Kansas Athletics works closely with the University Career Center which complements the services Athletics provides by offering résumé review, one-on-one career guidance, and a variety of workshops designed to develop job search skills. KU student-athletes are encouraged to utilize these resources and participate in the University Career Fairs which are offered throughout the academic year.
The Student-Athlete Support Services team can assist student-athletes in registering on KU Career Connections. This network allows students to upload their resumes and apply for internships and jobs posted specifically for KU students.
Kansas Athletics is pleased to announce our partnership Career Athletes. Career Athletes is an online resource that allows current and former student-athletes to research and apply for employment opportunities with companies who are looking to hire student-athletes. Additionally, Career Athletes provides career resources and virtual career coaching specifically catered to student-athletes and the transferable skills they possess.
