 Why I chose to complete BOTH career certificates!

"Both of these certificates have helped me grow within the sport industry. I have learned how to conduct myself for an interview, how to better my resume and how to actually find jobs and internships within the sports industry. Both of the certificates taught me many things that I didn't already know and have helped me further myself in my industry and stand out amongst other applicants. I highly recommend to any student to get both of these certificates. They are easy to get, they are free, and you will learn so much along the way. They also look great on any resume."
