Student-Athletes visit Sam’s Club headquarters

The Student-Athlete Development department has begun a new career development program to provide opportunities for student-athletes to visit local businesses. The first site visit was conducted on Wednesday, April 20 at Sam’s Club Corporate Headquarters in Bentonville, Arkansas. Five student-athletes, along with Eric Wood and Candy Erbe, received a tour of the facility and met several members of the recruitment team who shared interviewing tips. The student-athletes also participated in speed mock interview sessions and met with John Furner, VP/DMM Merchandising/Sourcing. The student-athletes who attended were: Phoebe Bautista (volleyball), Elton Ford (football), Taj Harrison (men’s tennis), Allison Johnson (volleyball), and Ashley Largo (swimming and diving). The student-athletes gained insight into the operation of the world’s largest retailer as well as valuable information for their personal success.
