Exec. Director Hank Malin presents at NCAA career forum
Denison Vice President and Executive Director of the Knowlton Career Center Hank Malin recently spoke to more than 300 student athletes about career possibilities at a NCAA forum.
Malin was one of several career guidance professionals, athletics administrators and sports industry experts who participate in the virtual event May 27-29 at the 2020 NCAA Career in Sports Forum.
The three-day forum prepares junior and senior student-athletes for a career after graduation. The forum helps student-athletes learn more about themselves as leaders by exposing them to projects that require critical thinking as well as practical experiences that will strengthen their personal and professional skills and competencies. Through their participation, attendees will gain a deeper understanding of roles within the athletics industry and how their personal and professional interests align with potential career paths.
Forum sessions include how student-athletes can become more aware of their inner strengths, how to develop a career plan, practical approaches to the job search, how to navigate as a young professional in the athletics industry, the role of an athletics administrator and head coach, and other motivational and key messaging from speakers. The athletes also will have opportunities to engage in breakout sessions where they will engage in guided discussions to further curriculum understanding and build community with other student-athletes. A student-athlete task force also was created to identify and develop specific sessions where student-athletes expressed particular interest.
