By February 23, 2017 No Comments

This week, we are pleased to announce the addition of the University of Massachusetts (UMASS) to our roster of athletic department customers! UMASS will provide Game Plan’s on-demand educational content and assessments, as well as access to our Career Marketplace to their student-athletes as a part of its student-athlete development programming.

UMASS prides itself on providing student-athletes with a positive experience throughout their journey. To further enhance academic and student-athlete development programming, UMASS will integrate eLearning courses for all student-athletes and will focus on supporting its juniors and seniors through the career and job search process via the Game Plan platform and Career Marketplace.

“UMass Athletics strives to create an exceptional student-athlete experience and prepare our student-athletes for life beyond college and sports,” said Joan Hopkins, Associate Director of Athletics/Academic Services. “Adding Game Plan’s student-athlete development platform allows our academic services staff to reach student-athletes at every stage of their experience. We are excited to provide our student-athletes with additional tools that aid in a successful career transition.”

Our Career Marketplace  is the first full-engagement recruiting platform designed to connect and align athletic departments, student-athletes, and employers. Employers can recruit proven talent, amplify their employer brand, and promote organizational culture and values. Student-athletes get access to numerous career opportunities through a cutting-edge Career Marketplace.

UMASS sets the bar high for their student-athletes, and we are eager to help them foster an environment that inspires success and values crucial life skills and career-readiness.

Welcome aboard, Minutemen!
