Colleges and Universities see GRN Coastal’s College hire program as an extension of their internal programs. They are delighted to have us working with them to help their students secure their first professional role beyond college. They welcome our assistance.

GRN Coastal would like to give your student athletes the competitive Edge they need to succeed in the job marketplace. We would like to become a Service provider and Advisor to your University. We will not only work with the athlete’s one on one as their advisor but we can also connect them with our client’s one on one.   Although everyone wants to play professional ball, the reality is that very few will have that opportunity.
