Northwestern Mutual has teamed up with NACDA to create Life After Athletics — a program that prepares students for the transition from the campus to the workplace.

What is it?
Life After Athletics is a series of on-campus, interactive training sessions that provides tools to help students prepare for the next stage of life following their collegiate careers. We’ve partnered to customize these topics specific to a student-athlete’s unique needs.

The sessions available include:

  • Resume Writing
  • Interviewing Basics
  • Networking
  • Money Matters
  • Business Etiquette
  • Elevator Speech

In 2017, NACDA will partner with Northwestern Mutual to develop additional topics like financial empowerment which will help engage with current students and alumni post-graduation.

How does it benefit my students?
Your students will:

  • Hear from student-athletes and learn how to translate their athlete mentality into the desirable characteristics employers are looking for
  • Participate in exercises and real-life scenarios they may face as they enter the workforce
  • Learn about Northwestern Mutual's top-rated internship program — a game-changing opportunity that opens them to a flexible career with huge potential
