Testimonial: Former UTA Guard Accepts New Mortgage 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, a nationwide leader in consumer direct and traditional mortgaging, keeps its partners, clients, and communities at the centerfold of everything they do, and they offer the number one CRM operating system in the mortgage industry. With their commitment to people and the community, they were looking for a like-minded Senior Loan Officer to join their Dallas, Texas, team.

We were fortunate to be able to work with Rodrick Epps, a former point guard for the University of Texas at Arlington Mavericks and the Fort Wayne Mad Ants. A leader on and off of the court, with his driven attitude and proven skills as a licensed Loan Originator, we knew Rodrick would be a slam dunk for the position. Rodrick’s four years of successful mortgage industry experience meant that this would be a seamless transition.

Rodrick said his decision to work with NexGoal was easy once he spoke with one of our recruiters, Emma Sullivan.

“Emma presented herself to be very helpful and professional in reference to facilitating the career opportunity. I really enjoyed the ease of communication and being informed thoroughly throughout the process. 10 out of 10 experience,” Rodrick said. The two stayed in regular contact throughout the process, and Rodrick said Emma was always available for any questions or concerns he had.

Rodrick praised the NexGoal team following the acceptance of his new position. “Others seeking a new career opportunity or a new opportunity in the same field should choose NexGoal because you will experience an easy-going streamlined process while having any and all concerns alleviated.”

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 Rodrick was quick to advocate that other former athletes like himself and competitive-minded job seekers come to NexGoal when looking for their next opportunity.

The NexGoal team would like to thank Rodrick for his feedback and kind words, and we wish him continued success in his new role as Senior Loan Officer.
