SACAE Held Third Annual Career Fair

Nov. 3, 2016


The Florida Atlantic University Student Athlete Center for Academic Excellence worked in partnership with the FAU Career Center to host the third annual Student-Athlete Career Fair on Monday, Oct. 17.

"The FAU Student-Athlete Career Fair provided an opportunity to easily network with several businesses and find a potential post-graduation employer," said Brittney Brown, volleyball '14-'15. "If you were prepared with resumes and multiple questions, you left the career fair with more knowledge, many different business connections and contacts."

One hundred and forty student-athletes attended the event, offered to juniors and seniors. The event began with a former FAU student-athlete panel which featured a Q&A. The second portion of the event included an opportunity for the student-athletes to meet and network with 17 potential employers in a traditional career fair format.

"SACAE was really excited to partner with the FAU Career Center to host the career fair, which provided our student-athletes with the opportunity to network with employers," said Nicole Alderson, associate director and SACAE supervisor. "I was proud of our student-athletes. They came dressed professionally with copies of their resume and capitalized on this opportunity to meet and network with employers. The career fair really encourages our student-athletes to begin preparing for life after sports."
