Corporate and Academic Programs

Some organizations develop larger programs where job transition support is broader in scope as part of outplacement programs. I am engaged because I provide both writing and coaching services. These programs are collaborations with representatives of the organization, in addition to other coaches and writers.

National Football League (NFL)

Career Transition Program in collaboration with Stanford Graduate School of Business

The NFL is very aware that the transition from professional sports to the business world can be very challenging. Retired players may have emotions and feelings about their financial, marriage, family, physical and mental challenges that can get in the way of deciding what to do next. They may not be clear on what skills and experience gained as a professional football player that are valuable to another employer.

Several years ago the NFL, Georgia Tech and a professional coaching company established the first career transition program for professional sports. There have been multiple 4-day events for about 40 men who come together from around the country.

Participating players learn about personal finances, launching a new career with realistic opportunities, developing a personal brand, communication, and interview skills. They are exposed to guest speakers, opportunities for groups discussion, and formal coaching tools such as the Myer’s Briggs personality assessments.

I was recently one of a small group of coaches that provided a remote and in-person individualized coaching before, during and after the event.

Mills College

This is a nationally renowned liberal arts women’s college with graduate programs for women and men. The college offers services through their career development department.

I was one of a number of coaches who worked individually with students about their resumes. Rather than write for the women, I provided coaching on writing strategies, including a review of their current resumes. The goal was to help them understand how resumes are developed and then used over time. We had an initial remote access coaching session. They then turned around their resumes which I approved before sending back to the school.
