DP2 Career Connections provides skill development to Dartmouth student-athletes to ensure a smooth transition into their professional lives. This program also prepares student-athletes for the on-campus recruiting efforts spearheaded by the Dartmouth Center for Professional Development.
In partnering with the Center for Professional Development, Career Connections tailors career-focused programming and training around a Division-I athletic schedule. The program provides one-on-one counseling along with group sessions to fit the student-athletes’ needs. Topics include resume and cover letter crafting, industry research, database access, and networking tutorials.
Finally, the keys to a student-athlete’s professional development are a foundation of the hard skills combined with confidence in networking. Periodic contact with Dartmouth alumni serves as the main element in building this confidence. Career Connections works closely with dedicated alumni to provide as many opportunities as possible to connect current student-athletes with the ever-growing and supportive Big Green alumni-base.
DP2 Career Connections aims to support the student-athletes as they leverage their athletic experience in pursuit of undergraduate and post-graduate employment endeavors.
