Testimonial: Former MLB Pitcher Slides Into Med Sales Role

At NexGoal, we take our athlete career placements 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 journey with all of you.

Our client is a leading designer, manufacturer, and marketer of innovative healthcare products. The needs of their customers and their patients drive everything they do. Because of their dedication to excellence, innovation, and value, they seek those same values in their employees. They turned to NexGoal to find their next Respiratory Sales Specialist.

We were fortunate to make contact with Zach Seipel, a former MLB pitcher with the Atlanta Braves. Zach has a deep passion for the healthcare industry thanks to his mother’s experiences as a nurse. Over his three-year MLB career, Zach combined his love of healthcare and his athletic background by learning about the treatment and recovery of athletes. Zach’s dedication to healthcare, along with the competitive drive, coachability, persistence, and confidence that made him a successful athlete, made him a perfect candidate for our client’s opening.

Once Zach connected with NexGoal recruiter Brittany Brady, he knew it was the right fit. “The NexGoal team really gets the athlete experience and what former athletes like me can bring to an organization. It was clear they really knew their stuff,” Zach said of his decision.

Brittany and Zach formed an easy rapport, and Zach highlighted their interactions as a bright spot in the process. “I felt like [Brittany] really listened to me and understood me. She kept in touch regularly, was available to answer any questions or concerns I had, and provided valuable knowledge on what went on behind the scenes during the hiring process. ” Zach said.

It didn’t take long for Zach to get the job and begin his new career. “The process couldn’t have been easier. Job searching can be a pain, but with someone like Brittany and the [NexGoal] team on your side, it’s a lot easier. If you’re looking for a new job, I highly recommend reaching out to them.”

Over the past 10+ years, we have specialized in placing former athletes in careers with our various corporate clients. The core of our business surrounds athlete job seekers, and Zach was quick to recommend NexGoal to any other former athletes looking to make a career change.

“NexGoal truly understands what life after the game is like and how to help athletes pivot,” Zach said.

The NexGoal team would like to thank Zach for his valuable feedback and for sharing his journey, and we wish him continued success in his new role as a Respiratory Sales Specialist.
