“New York Life’s commitment to professional training is beyond reproach,” said
Game Plan will augment its professional development program with tips from New York Life’s existing educational resources offered to new agents and advisors. New York Life’s sponsorship of professional development extends beyond finance to incorporate comprehensive job-preparation skills. Sample topics include resume writing, interviewing, networking, effective communication, negotiation, and professional presentation. The curriculum meets a critical need for the 200,000 former athletes entering the job market each year.
“Student-athletes already bring so many desirable traits and intangibles to the workplace. Now, Game Plan gives us the opportunity to begin training them on job-specific skills even before they graduate,” said
This partnership is the latest for Game Plan, which has teamed up with several other world-class brands to create a range of subject matter curriculum tailored to student-athletes. Its mix of free and subscription-based content includes financial education, responsible gaming, mental health, brand building, social justice, and academic success, among various other areas.
“New York Life’s ‘practice, perform, assess, and improve’ mantra not only perfectly captures how athletes think, but it also embodies the approach we seek in all our partners,” said McCaffrey. “We look forward to fulfilling a shared vision of helping young people find purpose through their profession.”
