Here is a more detailed 3-minute Helper Video External Link.

This page will take you through 4 steps to (1) Select from Athletics and Team Sports careers/jobs, (2) Find Athletics and Team Sports job listings, (3) Prepare for Athletics and Team Sports careers, and (4) Provide Athletics and Team Sports career-specific resources.

Step 1: Select a Career/Job: This page starts with 4 ways for you to identify and select from listings of Athletics and Team Sports careers/jobs:
A) Fastest Growing Athletics and Team Sports Careers - 2020 to 2030 (est.)
These listings are based on job growth estimates and helps you to identify the fastest growing and evolving Athletics and Team Sports careers. Some careers may not initially seem related to Athletics and Team Sports, so relevant Athletics and Team Sports jobs are listed alongside each listing. This can also help us to identify which careers (bottom of the listing) may have negative growth - perhaps due to automation or planned obsolescence.
B) Median Annual Salary U.S. Athletics and Team Sports Careers
These listings are sorted (descending) by median annual salary in the U.S. This may help us to identify our ideal career. We may not qualify at this time for the desired career, but this listing and the results provided can help us to explore job details, as well as learn how to appropriately prepare for the career.
C) Athletics and Team Sports Career Ladders (Educational Requirements)
These listings will help us to identify Athletics and Team Sports careers sorted by educational requirements (with the most difficult to obtain listed first). This may help us to identify career ladders (as we scroll down the list), and help us to get jobs that we qualify for now.
D) Select From a Listing of 126 Athletics and Team Sports Jobs.
The list may be quite long. There are two ways you might like to use this list:
1) Filter - As you enter a word, you will filter (limit) the list of jobs
2) Browse the list (Don't Filter) - You can simply explore the list of jobs. There may be many that you might never have considered to be of interest.
Once you have identified an job of interest, simply click on it.

Step 2: Find a Job: After you have selected a career/job above, you will see current jobs listings. You can change the location, distance from location and recency as desired. Each of the listings will link to a current job opening.

Job listings (based on your criteria) can be sent daily to your inbox, so you always have access to the latest opportunities. Complete the short form to start - you can opt out anytime.
