Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) December 25, 2008
Career Athletes, the leading career education and resource provider for graduating and alumni collegiate athletes, recently brought on former Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Marc Boerigter as a business development representative at its headquarters in Olathe, KS. Marc will be responsible for promoting all aspects of Career Athlete's unique branding and recruitment services to hiring organizations.
"We are very pleased to have Marc join Career Athletes," said Chris Smith, CEO of Career Athletes. "Not only was Marc an outstanding collegiate and professional athlete, but he was also an outstanding student and brings a fresh experience and perspective to our organization."
A Hastings College graduate, Marc spent two years in the Canadian Football League before making the jump to the NFL and the Chiefs in 2002. During his 4 year career with the Chiefs, Marc hauled in a 99 yard pass reception for a touchdown giving him the Chiefs record for the longest touchdown reception. This feat also tied him with 9 other receivers for the NFL's longest touchdown reception. "I am excited to join the Career Athletes team. As a former NAIA student athlete and NFL player, I thoroughly understand the importance of both career education and career networking in making the successful transition into the working world. CA is a perfect fit for me in that I truly represent what Career Athletes is all about," said Boerigter. Prior to joining Career Athletes, Marc was an account executive with a local broadcasting company.
