It is becoming a referee. These students gain transferable skills that are rarely ever considered when looking for part time employment. We have examined deliverables gained through conducting research, interviewing officials, and completing a comprehensive literature review. Our goal is to promote officiating in Campus Recreation with specificrecommendations on how to grow an official pool of candidates to gain the deliverableskills needed in the workplace. We will portray the importance of working withstudents to build a culture that focuses on engaging in career development, teachingstudents how to express their skills and experiences to sell themselves in ajob interview.
