WASHINGTON - Georgetown University Head Baseball Coach Pete Wilk and the Hoyas welcomed 14 leading professionals spanning many different fields to the program's 12th annual Career Night at The Daily Grill last week.
These professional leaders in government, business, law, and the military shared various advice and what to expect as the student-athletes ready themselves for the transition from the ball field to the work place.
Wilk asked the junior and seniors on the team to indicate what professions drew their interest as possible career paths. With the help of former baseball players Mark Siegel and Kevin DiSanto, they reached out to those in the vast Georgetown Baseball network of professionals, bringing in some of the most accomplished leaders in their field.
Organizations represented included the Central Intelligence Agency, Federal Bureau of Investigation, the U.S. Marine Corps, leading D.C. law firms, as well as numerous leaders in the financial sector, both in D.C. and New York City.
The evening began with the juniors and seniors meeting and talking with the guests as they arrived. After everyone was seated for dinner, the professionals took turns sharing their experiences with the student-athletes, as well as taking questions.
After each guest shared their stories and advice, Siegel and DiSanto recapped the event with general advice as the players decide which path to pursue in the working world. Many of the guests told the players that they were gaining invaluable experience that they may not even recognize by being an athlete at a school like Georgetown. They continued by saying the skills the student-athletes have learned in college will translate into success as they enter the professional ranks.
"I'm so proud of this event," Wilk said. "And more than that, I'm grateful to those alumni and friends of the program who care enough about our student-athletes to donate their time and share their valuable experience with our kids."
The Hoyas will open their 2013 season on February 15, when they travel to Spartanburg, S.C. to take on Wofford.
