Breakout Session Themes Per Class
Freshman Class-Chris Scott
What Will Be Your F&M Story? Building an acumen that will secure your future now.
From major declaration to varsity sports involvement, and professional connections to internship experience, the acumen you build beginning in your first year can affect whether and how you land a job or secure admission to a professional or graduate school program before graduation. This session for first year students will focus on developing a mentor/mentee relationship, center of influence and social media presence.
Sophomore Class – Ryan McGonigle
What do you wanna do? Deciding on Majors and a career path.
Sophomore year is critical for F&M students as they switch into more classes in their major. It is a year for students to clarify a action plan for their professional pathway including securing internships. Ryan will discuss types of career paths and pre-requisites as well what qualifications/experience goes into an entry level/internship resume. Ryan will pull both from his experience as an F&M student athlete as well as his experience running the Recruiting Division for Construction Risk Solutions.
Junior & Senior Class – Scott Malfitano and Steve Loscalzo
How do you land the first job? Nailing the interview.
Our juniors & seniors will undergo an intensive mock interview process with Scott and Steve. Steve will focus on those players looking at Health Professions while Scott on the business related students. The interviewees will receive a full social media and resume audit as part of the interview. After the interviews, each senior will receive feedback both by Ben and the rest of his class. Historically, we have found many of our players have received job interviews offers from what they thought were mock interviews.
