Tim Bradley, a 2009 graduate of Levittown’s General Douglas MacArthur Senior High School, is combining hands-on, real-world work experience with academics and athletics at LIU Post in Brookville.
A student in the accelerated B.S./MBA program in business and a goalie on the LIU Post lacrosse team, Bradley recently started an internship at Lacoste, one of the world’s largest apparel corporations. He learned about the position through university’s online bulletin, JobNet, and has been working a few days a week at the company’s U.S. headquarters in Manhattan. Bradley, a Wantagh resident, is interning with the vice president of the Visual Department, which manages the architectural renderings and blueprints for Lacoste’s retail stores and boutiques in North America.
“As an athlete, I learned about time management, especially when it comes to juggling a heavy game schedule and practice with school work,” said Bradley. “As a goalie, you need to be vocal and learn to be a leader. When I am at the office, I don’t have a problem with taking the initiative. If I see that something needs to be done, I don’t have to be told to do it. I know instinctively to move ahead to achieve the goal.”
Bradley is one of many students at the college involved in sports and internships.
“Our scholar-athletes bring to the workforce a special blend of mental agility, determination and teamwork; their skills are easily transferable from the sports field to the board room,” said Jason Cascone, director of Career Services at LIU Post.
