Suited for Success Career Series

The Red Raider Club Excellence Fund –

The Red Raider Club Excellence Fund provides the necessary resources for Texas Tech student-athletes to compete at the highest level, both in the classroom and on the field. Contributions to the Excellence Fund impacts student-athletes by providing them with:

  • Scholarships

  • Academic support services

  • Leadership development

  • And much more

One of the many opportunities available to student-athletes through gifts to the Excellence Fund is the Suited for Success Career Series.

 

Suited for Success Career Series –

The Suited for Success Career Series is a cornerstone of the J.T. & Margaret Talkington Leadership Academy as it focuses on training student-athletes in:

  • Interview skills 

  • Individualized career assessments and counseling

  • Resume building

  • Etiquette training 

  • Networking skills 

Throughout the year, Texas Tech connects successful local business leaders with student-athletes for networking, mock interviews, leadership training sessions, and much more. 

 

Every student-athlete who completes the series hand-picks their own business attire to wear to a celebratory dinner, and which they get to keep as they enter into the business world. A select group of student-athletes will then have the opportunity to take their skills and business attire to Dallas, TX for the Tech Athletics Career Tour.
