RESUME HINTS

Function of the Resume
The resume starts the recruiting process. It provides a communication link between the coach and the player. It tells the coach how to contact the player, whether the player is an academic risk or not, and their athletic experience. The resume lets the coach know whether the position that this player plays is the position the coach is recruiting this season. If the player is playing the position the coach needs to fill, has the right academic qualifications and the skills, then the coach will send her a questionnaire and request a video.

Resume Design
At College Sports Exposure, the resumes are professionally designed. The format for each sport’s resume has been developed and evolved over a period of 20 years. The resume is designed so that it draws attention to the player’s key information. Action pictures of the ladies in their sport are scanned into the resume so the college coach can see the player’s appearance and then they know who to look for when they go scouting.

Resume Options
In the past, the resume has been the most expensive part of the exposure process. College Sports Exposure has made many innovations to reduce the resume cost. Four different distribution methods are available. These distribution methods are:

  1. Emailing the resume
  2. Mailing out paper resumes for the player to colleges that the player selects
  3. Mailing the paper resumes to the player and letting the player mail them out themselves to colleges they select
  4. Posting on-line player profiles on our Internet site

It is a good idea to mix different media types, such as mailing resumes and posting an online player profile. This approach insures your resume or returned questionnaire is not overlooked or forgotten.

Emailing the Resumes
Our customer’s most popular choice for distributing resumes is by e-mail because it pays for itself by eliminating stamps and paper costs. For example, College Sports Exposure designs and e-mails out a player’s resume to at least 150 college coaches for $80.00. 150 Stamps cost $51.00. The reason for e-mailing to 150 College Coaches is to screen which colleges are interested in a particular player and the position they play. College Sports Exposure also e-mails resumes to one coach at a time (individually). Click here to contact us about individually e-mailing resumes. Over the past several years, College Sports Exposure has obtained many college coaches e-mail addresses when we meet the coaches personally at tournaments that we scout. Many of these addresses are not available on the coach’s respective college Internet site or from companies that market college coaches addresses. There are several reasons for no or inefficient e-mail addresses for the college coach on Internet sites. Not all college coaches choose to post their e-mail addresses on the college Internet site. College Sports Exposure has e-mail addresses of many of the college coaches who do not post their e-mail address on their college Internet site. Frequently, college coaches e-mail us with their new e-mail addresses when they move to a new softball program. Coaches who have used our service and are retiring, usually e-mail us with the e-mail address of their replacement coach. These e-mail addresses may not show up on the Internet for a year or more. College Sports Exposure has developed several propriety techniques to efficiently e-mail the resumes to the college coaches. The memory capacity of the college coaches computers varies from college to college. College Sports Exposure has pioneered various techniques that allow them to e-mail resumes to the college coach where they can actually receive and read the resume. Updated resumes should be mailed out to remind the College Coaches that the player is still interested in their college program. They should be mailed out to the College Coaches to inform them about travel team switches, travel team schedule changes and SAT and ACT scores when they become available. The e-mailed resumes solve a storage problem for the college coaches. Most coaches either have file cabinets or wastebaskets full of paper resumes. A Louisiana College Coach told College Sports Exposure at a tournament that she was going to add a Zip Drive to her computer to store them.
