Job Search Resources
I have written about, talked about, done clinics about and been helping coaches about their job search since 2012! I get asked so many questions through email and social media messages about a wide variety of job search issues that I thought I would put much of what I’ve done in one place!
First of all, my most popular book is titled An Insiders Guide To Scoring Your Next Coaching Job. Jam packed with 14 chapters written by a coach for a coach! But I wasn’t just a coach, I also served as an Athletic Director, before I wrote this book. So, I give you unique insight into what administrators are looking for. The is a PDF version and a hard copy version.
