Tips for New Exercise Science Grads

Tips for New Exercise Science Grads with Dr. Ali Amiri

It is getting close to that time of year when I end up getting questions from new grads with exercise science degrees (Kinesiology, Human Kinetics, Physical Education, etc) asking for tips and advice when it comes to graduating and what to do.

I asked an older friend from school (college/university) who has taken a very cool path in his career if he could share his experience and insights with new grads.

The interview is with Dr. Ali Amiri.
