2014 Torero Networking Night

April 3, 2014

SAN DIEGO, CA - The University of San Diego's Department of Athletics hosted the 9th Annual Torero Networking Night (internship/job fair) for student athletes on Wednesday, April 2nd from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. in the Jenny Craig Pavilion.

Torero Networking Night is a unique opportunity to network, explore a variety of careers and interview with employers. Favorable responses often result in second interviews, with the goal of securing an internship or job position.

The evening began with former men's basketball student athlete Ross DeRogatis sharing his transition from college athletics to a post-athletic life. The networking portion featured a traditional career fair before moving to the evening's highlight - the interviews themselves. Each student athlete spent the next hour in a series of 12-minute interviews with five employers. The participants also took a professional photo for utilization on LinkedIn or other social media.

Torero student athletes prepared for the event by attending a career hour, listening to a panel of former USD student athletes as well as receiving interview tips from Robin Darmon, Director of Career Services.

Seventeen alumni were among the 60 representatives from 33 companies, government agencies, and nonprofit organizations that included the California State Board of Equalization, County of San Diego - Department of Human Resources, DJO Global, Federal Aviation Administration, MRC - A Xerox Company, Peace Corps, San Diego Chargers, San Diego County Sheriff's Department, San Diego Police Department, San Diego Youth Services, Scripps Mercy Hospital, Solar Turbines, Southern Wine & Spirits, Stryker Sustainability Solutions, Target, TaylorMade - Adidas Golf, United States Department of Justice - DEA, FBI, and YMCA - Mission Valley.

The University of San Diego's curriculum teaches students to navigate a diverse collection of disciplines, perspectives, and people. This diversity not only opens their minds but also expands their future horizons, preparing them for the range of careers that they will have in a lifetime. According to Ron Valenzuela, Assistant Athletic Director for Academics and Student Athlete Services, "Through specific networking events, career workshops, resume writing services and individual career counseling, Torero career development programs are intended to prepare student athletes for the world of work that awaits them upon graduation. Career activities are aimed at developing not just short-term internship and employment prospects, but also long-term career success in a variety of fields for USD graduates."
