Our Story

After graduating as student athletes our founders experienced an even more difficult challenge:
Finding a job that would fuel their competitive instincts.

After working with startups and major corporations, seeing first hand how athletes transition into the workforce it became clear that Student Athletes make up the most engaged, driven, and resilient sub category of American worker. They just need help finding the path.

That’s what we do.

Grit

“Grit” is becoming an increasingly popular term . Nothing builds grit like the pursuit of athletic excellence. Working is about putting in the hours toward a goal-a quarterly sales number, a KPI, or a new product. True momentous victories in the office are rare. As a manager, you want people who aren’t working for the “win,” but for the pure love of the effort. You want an athlete.

Team

If you want a business with a collaborative ethos, adding athletes to the mix is essential. Athletes understand that teamwork is about more than just sharing the workload, supporting your teammates or jumping in to lead when needed. Great teamwork requires people who understand group dynamics and know how to adjust their behavior and role to fit the organization’s needs

Drive

Athletes are goal-oriented by nature, which means they’re constantly assessing where they stand in relationship to their objective and fine-tuning the tactics they need to get there. Like a midfielder in soccer reading the defense to decide whether to shoot or pass, the best workers constantly reprioritize to focus on the goals that matter most to their team.

Experience

Student athletes have an academic commitment of around 30 hours each week. They are also balancing close to 40 hours per week on their sport. By the time they graduate they will be seasoned in creative problem solving and time management.

EI

No matter how many degrees a person has, if he or she doesn’t have certain emotional qualities, he or she is unlikely to succeed. Key attributes of EI such as, self-awareness, self-regulation and empathy are often developed through athletics.

Coachable

Being open to change is a core trait for student athletes. Whether it is personal change or organizational change, being open to the new possibilities that change can bring is very important. It means a potential hire has the ability to orientate and adapt to your culture and ways of doing business.
