How We Assisted a Former Hockey Player Land a New Role

At NexGoal, we take the placing of our athlete-candidates in their new careers very seriously – which is why our project coordinators spend so much time working with each candidate to put them in the best position to succeed. Once our candidates are placed, we like to take the time to share that candidate’s experience with all of you.

Recently, Brittany Brady had the pleasure of working with Trevor Hills a former college and professional hockey player. Hills was looking for a new career path after playing collegiately at SUNY Geneseo and professionally in Germany. He joins the growing list of former athletes we have helped place into new careers.

We asked Hills why he decided to work with NexGoal and he said:

“I chose to work with NexGoal because I knew it was a company looking to help former athletes. They understand that former athletes still have a competitive drive and have jobs available for you [athlete-candidates] to still compete in the work force each day. NexGoal allowed me to get my resume and foot in the door at a great company looking for former athletes. I’m excited to move away from sports and into the business world thanks to the help of NexGoal.”

Next, we asked what he enjoyed most about his experience with NexGoal and with his project coordinator, Brittany Brady. He said:

“NexGoal employees were always available to answer questions and concerns throughout the process. For my whole life I had known athletics and Brittany at NexGoal was always there to answer any important questions I had now that I was entering the business world. Thanks to NexGoal I was successfully able to find a career path where I am able to use my competitive side from sports in the real world.”

He continued, “I thought Brittany was great, she was always available to call and quick to email me back with any questions or concerns I ever had. She was also on top of getting in touch with the company I was interviewing with to get information from them about possible steps forward.”

Finally, we asked Hills why others should use NexGoal to help find their next career. He said:

“If you’re like me and have truly only really known athletics your entire life, working with NexGoal is a great way to help you take the right steps forward. They can help guide you to become a professional in the business world and set you up with some world class companies. I’m excited to get started and am very thankful for the help from the NexGoal team.”

The NexGoal team would like to thank Trevor for his kind words and we wish him the best of luck in his new career in the sales industry!
