  17. 17. “ I wanted to thank you again for continuing to grow the amount of people sharing their resumes on The Corporate Playbook, it has resulted in another hire for ADP! I love speaking to athletes from your site, they tend to be a great fit for our culture.  Thanks again and keep up the good work! Lisa Gebhard, ADP-Sales Recruiting Researcher Employer Testimonial “ Guardian Life Insurance Company of America is a Premiere Sponsor with The Corporate Playbook and has been using their system for the last 6 months. I have personally been working with their CEO, Chad Smith in getting this system integrated into my national agencies. This company is so easy to work with and the caliber of candidates is like nothing I have ever seen. So many athletes are added to the site each and every week that no matter when you do your searches, different athletes show up each time. Having worked in NCAA athletics for 6 years, I know what kind of employees and team players former athletes can be. I will take a candidate like that fresh off a college campus any day of the week!!!!! Athletes have the characteristics that companies of all shapes and sizes look for: determination, ethics, hard work, knowledge, skill and an all around team player mentality. Also, with the relationships The Corporate Playbook have, we have been able to interview former athlete candidates who have been in the workforce for 10 years and are just looking for a change. I would hands down recommend this site to any recruiter looking to hire college athletes or to any former athlete looking to find a new and different profession”. Dawn Dickinson, National Director of Recruiting Guardian Life
  18. 18. Testimonials &quot;Without a doubt, high level, competitive athletes make very good employees and leaders in most cases. I would say individual sport competitors are the first choice because they have to get the job done on their own and in many cases without anyone else around to push them.” Brad Swartout, Sales Director, MetLife &quot;Working as a Sales Recruiter for ADP, I love using The Corporate Playbook! It is so easy to use and we can find the best candidates - ATHLETES in one spot! I have recruited and hired numerous athletes already from using this site!
