In February, our 3rd Thursday Alumni Speaker Series focused on Careers in Sports Industry, with alumni from the NFL, Philadelphia Phillies, the Mets, the Trenton Thunder, FCS College Football, and Major League Soccer! This program was sponsored by the Dean’s Advisory Council, co-sponsored by BGS & IMASC, and attracted over 85 students from across campus.
Moderated by Christoph Schoenbeck ’10, panelists graduated from diverse TSC/TCNJ programs including management, criminal justice, journalism and communication studies. They offered advice on networking, creating your brand, and perseverance and shared stories from the field. Students were encouraged to create their own networks, and to start out following job postings and Career Fair events in the sports industry on websites like Teamworkonline.com.
