Weekly Recruiting Thoughts from Legendary Recruiting Coordinator Bob Chmiel

 

How is your resume looking? Yes, your resume!

 

You may believe the term “resume’ is a long way off in your life. However, you are about to apply for a position with a large “company” – that company being a university and, more specifically, one of its athletic programs. Your body of work up to this point is, in fact, your resume. It shapes a school’s opinion of you as an applicant, and it shapes a coach’s opinion of you as a recruit. When you are accepted into a school or an athletic program, people are making a long-term investment in you. Your resume determines their willingness to make that investment.

 

So what goes on your resume? A few of the items are obvious: your transcript, your test scores, your highlight footage. These aspects of your resume are critically important. Visit your class counselor and make sure everything is in perfect order sooner rather than later, as it’s much easier to fix problems if you catch them early. When a school asks for your transcript, you want to be able to get it to them quickly. This makes all the difference during the recruiting process, as those who have their acts together move up to the front of the recruiting line.

 

Your highlight tapes – while not indicative of your entire skill set – should prove that you possess the ability to play at the level of a given school. A highlight video will not earn you a scholarship, but if it’s made correctly, it may just convince coaches to come see you in person. At that point, it’s up to you to close the deal on the court or the field.

 

Finally, your resume gives decision makers in admissions departments or athletic programs a snapshot of who you are as a person. Colleges and universities want well-rounded individuals who do more than play sports. They want people who have had experiences outside of the classroom and off playing field. They want people who show character and concern for others in their community. Put differently, schools are looking for young men and women who can bring the “total package” to their campuses. Think about it: how do you represent yourself as that type of candidate? Do you volunteer at a homeless shelter, or maybe a veterans hospital? Do you belong to service clubs at your school? Do you participate in groups that have an emphasis on a particular subject matter at your school? Or, even better, have you taken the initiative and started a club of your own? Test scores and grades are important, but it’s a fact that well-rounded individuals are often granted admission over individuals who simply have good grades.

 

If you excel on the field/court and in the classroom, you’re on the right track. But if you look for opportunities to excel in other areas in which you are passionate, it will make all the difference on your resume, and you will have a tremendous opportunity to get to where you want to be.
