Synopsis: This book is written for student athletes . . . Positive Transitions for Student Athletes will help student athletes succeed in college and make a successful transition to the world beyond college. Darin Meeker, a former student athlete himself, Christopher Stankovich, and Todd Kays have over 25 years of experience working with student athletes. Meeker and Stankovich developed a ground-breaking program called the "Positive Transitions Program" at The Ohio State University, designed to meet the special needs of student athletes as they face the transitions that retirement brings and ready themselves for careers. With the concrete information and step-by-step exercises in this book, readers will:
--develop life skills that will help them do better academically, socially, athletically, and professionally; these skills include effective communication, decision making, and goal setting.
--identify the skills they have developed as athletes that will be valuable to employers and learn how to match those skills to a job description and articulate them in a resume or during an interview.
--learn from the real life stories and experiences of other student athletes who faced transitions from high school to college or from college and sport to career.
--put technology to work in the personal assessment and career planning and job search processes, including exploring career-related web sites, using email for networking, and creating an electronic resume.
