Additionally, The Corporate Playbook has worked diligently to comply with all NCAA rules and regulations regarding their services. They have been very thorough and conscience of the remaining eligibility of student-athletes and do not want to do anything to jeopardize their futures.” Jodi Sykes Assistant Athletic Director (Athletic Compliance) – University of Louisville - 2009 The Corporate Playbook places NCAA compliance above all else.

  • 15. “ The Corporate Playbook has been great! After I was finished with college football, I sent out my resume to a lot of companies and posted it on numerous recruiting websites. I received few calls & felt like I wasn't making any solid connections. I felt like I was just a number & nothing helped me as an individual. Once I got in contact with The Corporate Playbook, the network helped me land a job with a great company in Cintas within a week & the Locker Room section helped me with the preparation aspects too. It has been an incredible career development tool!” Chase Floyd, Louisville KY, Football "The site is awesome! Thanks for answering my questions and your help with student-athletes. I was excited to learn about this new tool!" Kelli Sheibley, Youngstown State University, Women's Softball Student Athlete Testimonials "What I like best about The Corporate Playbook's website is that it is simple, easy to use and fun to search for other athletes, something that is unique compared to most other job sites. I just got a great new job from the network and I am definitely willing to share the site with my friends and teammates!" Katie Laing, Women's Softball, Notre Dame
  • 16. “ I just wanted to drop you a letter, to thank you for your services. I recently accepted an offer from a top company on your website. I was only enrolled on your site for a very short period of time, and I now have this new opportunity. I have been registered with many other job search web sites for quite some time, and nothing has panned out with them. The training is tough, but it is well worth it. I am very pleased with the opportunities which I have been given. Thank you again for putting me with such a great company! “ Sincerely, Craig Veasey 1985 Graduate, University of Houston Former Professional Football Player, Miami Dolphins/Pittsburgh Steelers Alumni Testimonials
  • 17. "After playing football my entire life, making a career transition was tough. I had no idea what I wanted to do. I knew I had a passion for helping people and I enjoyed working with children. My wife and I began to enter my resume onto different career websites, but still found no jobs that were of interest to me. One late night, my wife came across a website called The Corporate Playbook which was geared strictly towards athletes. I said, “Sign me up!" and shortly after registering, I began to receive emails and interviews from top companies in my area. A few weeks later, we learned we were expecting a baby. I decided it was time to sit down with my Financial Advisor to discuss our future. After meeting with my Financial Advisor, he directed me to look into different life insurance policies pending the arrival of our new addition. Arriving home from my meeting, my wife informed me that I needed a job as soon as possible! I had begun my internet search for life insurance policies when I received an email from The Corporate Playbook. It was for a career opportunity with Guardian Life Insurance. I viewed “The Living Balance Sheet”, a great tool offered by the company to assess financial needs, and felt it could really be a valuable tool for myself as well as others. At that point, I decided I wanted to be apart of this organization. Guardian Life Insurance referred me to Consolidated Planning, Inc. and the rest is history! I am now a Financial Specialist with Consolidated Planning, Inc. and I am fulfilling my passion for helping people as well as having the flexibility to continue coaching high school football. I refer all of my friends to The Corporate Playbook. It helped me and there’s no doubt it can help you also. If have a need for financial advise or interested in a career with Guardian, please look me up on the network!” Deveron Harper, '00 Notre Dame Graduate and NFL Veteran Alumni Testimonial
  • 18. “ Many thanks for taking the time to visit with us and sharing The Corporate Playbook. It looks and sounds as if there are several exciting aspects of your program that will continue to benefit our students athletes and I look forward to seeing more in the future. Thanks again!” Joseph A. Quinlan Jr. Director of Athletic and Recreational Services Seton Hall “ The Corporate Playbook is a great career networking tool for Marist student-athletes. The site and its contents will be used in an effort to enhance the career development portion of the Marist College CHAMPS/Life Skills program.“ Lynsey Miller, Assistant Director Center for Student -Athlete Enhancement Marist College “ I want you to know how much I appreciate your commitment to our student-athletes. What an irony that our theme was focused on commitment to the University and the athletic department and we are blessed to have you come show true commitment in action! I am grateful for your leadership and words to athletes, thank you for making a difference!” Dr. Holly Sheilley, Associate Athletic Director University of Louisville University Testimonials
  • 19. “ 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
