From entry level to experienced, see what other members are saying about their personal game plan.

“Early on in college, I knew I wanted to have a career in medical sales, and I knew that the industry was a tough industry to break into. Throughout college, I worked various sales jobs and internships to build my resume. Realistically, I believed that with persistence, I could crack into the medical sales industry 3-5 years after graduation.  What Athlete Network did for me, is accelerate my dream. I updated my Athlete Network profile, clearly defining what I was looking for, and Athlete Network reached out to me with a wonderful opportunity.  Athlete Network helped me obtain my dream job, with a respected and well known company.”

"The team at Athlete Network is serious about finding jobs for their members. I had spent over five months interviewing with well over twenty different companies, and it wasn't until I connected with the Athlete Network team that I found the perfect opportunity working for Charles Schwab in Denver. They are serious about connecting athletes with companies who love to hire them. Athlete Network is a fast-track to connections that matter, with companies who are ready hire talented, hard-working athletes. With connections throughout the country, Athlete Network is especially successful at putting athletes in front of companies with locations nation-wide, which was great for me when I was looking to relocate to Denver. Without Athlete Network, I never would have been able to land the job I wanted in the location I wanted to be."
