National Collegiate Scouting Association

One of the best parts about having a significant other is discovering embarrassing moments from his or her past. While my greatest find is the Cosmo cover with my wife’s 4 year old, lipstick smeared face and the headline “How to Attract Men Like Crazy,” a close runner up is the recruiting video that she sent to college volleyball coaches. Her mom shot it with the family camcorder, and it starts with a cheesy opening like “Hi, my name is Amy Gordon, and I want to play volleyball for your team (thumbs up).” It’s priceless, though I shouldn’t make fun considering that this video helped her get recruited to Cornell’s volleyball team–and that’s how we met. College sports recruiting has come a long way, and now most of it happens online. National Collegiate Scouting Association is a Chicago, IL based company that “was founded in 2000 to help student athletes and their families navigate the cutthroat, competitive, and often confusing world of college recruiting.” While they may sound like a non-profit, NCSA is a for-profit business that has seen tremendous growth over the last decade.

Scout It Out

The best way to understand the value that NCSA provides to student athletes and their families is to look at the numbers. Only 2% of the 7 million high school athletes will end up playing their sport in college. That means that a lot of people are chasing the dream of a scholarship, but few will get it. Yet 90% of athletes who use NCSA will end up playing a sport in college. It’s impossible to ignore that selection bias plays a huge part in those numbers (those with the best shot are the most likely to invest in a service that improves their chances), but they’re impressive nonetheless (and even more impressive when you consider the “$2.4 billion in scholarships awarded to NCSA athletes”). Since NCSA has to convince parents to spend money on their product/service, the company’s website is exceptionally informative. Spend some time browsing, and you’ll see just how comprehensive NCSA’s services are. (Don’t you wish there was something like this for the job search?). If you get excited by what you see, give NCSA’s Careers page a visit. Current openings include:

A lot of these positions have more exciting names than what they really are (customer service and sales), but working at the NCSA looks like an awesome way to start a career in sports.
