From the Phoenix Business Journal, a story by Adam Kress regarding an alliance of talents not always focused on in the job search community,
Jobing.com is partnering with the Tampa Chapter of NFL Alumni to provide assistance to retiring players moving from the National Football League into jobs in the traditional work force.
Under this partnership, Phoenix-based Jobing.com will provide assist players with their transition from their sports career into other opportunities by teaching employment skills such as resume writing and interviewing.
The workshops will start in October in Tampa and will continue through 2008. The grand finale will be networking opportunities at the Ninth Annual Player Networking Event at the Super Bowl. Players from all over the country are eligible for the help.

THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE ALUMNI is a non-profit service organization of former professional football players who work voluntarily on behalf of youth and charity. It was formed as an outgrowth of philanthropic and civic-minded impulses of men who performed at the highest level of the nation's most popular spectator sport and used that experience as a springboard to success in later life.
FOUNDED IN 1967 principally to deal with player welfare issues, the NFL Alumni was reorganized in 1977 as a tax-exempt charitable and educational organization. An IRS-approved 501(c)(3) public charity, the NFL Alumni has national headquarters in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and a network of local chapters across the country.
