I recently read an article on Forbes.com about why companies should hire athletes. It explained our drive for success, our inclination to take the lead, our desire to work hard and our ability to balance multiple projects. What it didn't explain was where a lot of us got those skills from. The factor that really makes me and my peers such strong job candidates goes back to our ability to handle the student-athlete challenge early in life. From my experience, if you can discover the power to balance and stay afloat during your educational years, you can accomplish anything. Below are some of the best student-athlete strategies I learned along the way.
