According to, a leading employee recruiter for fortune 500 companies, collegiate athletes make some of the best employees. “Six out of the past 11 U.S. presidents were collegiate athletes.” says McCaffrey, president

He offers five reasons you should consider a former college athlete as your next employee:
1.  They’re achievement oriented: they’ve been winning and losing their entire life.  They’ve learned how to eliminate external influences to win the game.
2.  They’re resilient: athletes have most likely failed more than they’ve won, but they always get up and keep going.  In the workplace, this trait creates an employee who will find a way to win.
3.  They’re strong communicators:  they’ve learned how to receive and provide feedback for the betterment of the team and they thrive on clear expectations.
4.  They’re team oriented:  they have the ability to work with others toward a common goal.
5.  They manage time well:  student athletes have a lot of responsibilities including classes, studying, strength training, conditions, practice, travel and games.
All of these reasons translate into a highly organized employee.
