CFA Career Days - 2019

Career Weekend: March 15-16, 2019
NYC Bus Networking Trip: April 6, 2019
Recruiting Trips to Campus: If you are coming to campus to recruit, let me know and I'll get players together for a work shop.

I am excited to present to you the lists of our junior and senior student athletes currently with Cornell Football.

Our seniors have eagerly prepared themselves for the next phase of their lives by working internships, shadowing, and networking with professionals.

Below is a brief snapshot of their experiences that each of them have had in hopes of securing employment or grad school after graduation.

In an attempt to assist them in their search for future employment, I have provided you a brief summary of their major, and internship and/or work experience. I hope that you would be able to review the list and provide guidance to them as they are in pursuit of a summer internship. As you know, and we teach them, an internship the summer after their junior year is important and can help build their resume and gain them valuable experiences.

If you feel that any of these young men have the qualifications that fit your company or business, feel free to contact them directly, or me, to obtain further information and a reference on them. If you click on a student's name, a more detailed profile and picture of them will appear.

If any of you would like to participate in any of our career events and would like more information, please contact me and I will share the schedule with you.
