The Kerr Sooner Career Center offers a variety
of career development programming for our student-athletes
throughout the year. These seminars presented by regional
and national companies allow our student-athletes to
gain insight and information into their particular
field of interest.
A student-athlete's personal development is not forgotten
by our staff. With this is mind, we provide adequate
programming that enhances the student-athlete's professional
profile such as business etiquette, networking, and
financial management to name a few.
The Kerr Sooner Career Center is linked to the OU Career
Services Office on campus, which complements the center
by offering effective job-hunting skills, on-line resume
services, and training and career resources.
We have also added a new component to market the skills
of our student-athletes with CareerAthletes.com
This on-line resource gives current and former OU student-athletes
an additional way to search and apply for employment,
internship, and networking opportunities locally, regionally
This is one of the few on-line services in the country
that is specifically devoted to the career development
of student-athletes, and we are one of the first universities
to offer this service to our student-athletes.
In addition to providing a connecting point for
student-athletes and potential employers, CareerAthletes.com supplements
the center by allowing the posting of job and internship
opportunities throughout the year. These employment/internship
opportunities can be listed electronically free of
charge to give OU student-athletes to browse and apply
through various offerings from your respective companies
