There always seems to be a raging debate as to what a recruitment video needs to include and if college soccer coaches will even take the time to watch it. If you are fortunate enough to have a coach come watch you play or see you at a soccer college showcase camp, your video is a supplement to add to your resume and remind them of who you are.

Today, in our evolving multimedia landscape, there has never been a higher demand for professionals with digital production skills. Now, it is needed in almost every industry. Yet, technical skills without creativity only go so far. Art: Summer at Penn’s, New Media Course, bridges this gap and allows students to grow their technical production skills. Explore and experiment with digital photography, video, sound, light, projection and installation. Then students can apply this knowledge towards a career in film, museum installation, graphic design and many more. Students will learn how to edit and publish various screening formats. They will also focus on a combination of individual and collaborative projects with access to state of the art modern equipment.
Run by N3rd Street Gamers and Julian Krinsky Camps & Programs, the unique camp isn’t just a place for young gamers to spend two weeks glued to screens and rattling off key combos. The camp infuses training, nutrition, speakers and activities to teach esports players skills they need to find success that goes beyond kill counts and online rankings.
“Gaming is an ecosystem to teach business and life skills,” said Steve Robertson, CEO of Julian Krinsky.
Generation Z, those currently in school, have the least amount of soft skills society has ever seen, according to Robertson. However, they have learned technology faster and sooner than previous ones, which could help them work in fields that may not even exist now but will in 10 to 20 years.
Rob Hilsky runs the camps for N3rd Street Gamers. Two weeks with gamers 10–14 years old will be followed by two more with 15–18 year olds. These students are now competing for college scholarships and spots on professional teams in various esports. As home of the Philadelphia Fusion University, campers have a chance to train in a facility used by an Overwatch franchise owned by Comcast Spectacor.
Is college better than high school? Unfortunately for those who ask it, there is no definitive answer to this question.
It’s not a secret anymore that top esports earnings can reach millions of US dollars per year, but did you know that the average esports salary is about $60,000? That might not be surprising, depending upon what you know about esports growth over the past few years.
