J-O-B. One of the most stressful words and topics in society, yet most people aren’t taught the most effective way to obtain a job, especially one they are passionate about.
This is what most people think is necessary to land the job they want.
Yeah, we’ve all been there. A lot of sites and people make it seem like all you have to do is apply online to a bunch of jobs and eventually you’ll get a response and get hired. Unfortunately, that is not the case.
While these online platforms are absolutely fantastic resources, they shouldn’t be your entire job searching strategy.

Here’s what I mean…
Teamwork Online and Work In Sports are two of the most reputable career websites in sports and they post hundreds of thousands of jobs. These are fantastic websites and can definitely help you on your career search, but they should not be the only approach you take.
If you’re reading this and you got a job by sending in a bunch of online apps, then MAZEL TOV! Please buy me my next lotto ticket…
All jokes aside, when you apply for a job, especially in sports, you are competing against hundreds and sometimes thousands of other people. Sending in a single online application does nothing to help you stand out from the crowd. Searching for a job is a PROCESS and you need to have a strategy to implement to make the process quicker and more effective.
Here is one way to approach the job searching process.
WOW Jake, this seems like a ton of work.
Guess what, you’re right!!!!
No one said getting a job was easy.
No one said getting a job was hard, either.
You just have to know what to do and how to approach the process.
