Cover letters, resumes, interviews, & portfolios – we will help you land that next job!
Your first impression is everything when applying for a new coaching job. You need to have everything aligned if you want to land your next opportunity: cover letter, resume, portfolio, and interviewing skills. We can help with all of the above!
Most coaches are confident in their cover letter, resume, and interviewing skills. However, a large percentage of coaches do not have a portfolio. While our services assist coaches with all aspects of the job search process, portfolios are our specialty.
A professional coaching portfolio is the tool that highlights your coaching achievements and philosophies and, most of all, helps separate you and your abilities from the other applicants.
The key to landing a new coaching job is to demonstrate to the hiring committee your attention to detail, level of preparedness, and your professionalism. Not only does a coaching portfolio allow you to exhibit these qualities, it also allows you to present your personal philosophies on coaching, leadership, and program development in an organized manner.
The Coaching Portfolio Guide is an instructional, membership-based website that helps you develop a personalized portfolio. Each section of the portfolio guide provides detailed instructions on how to organize your portfolio in a professional manner. The guide also provides sample documents for each section of your portfolio that you can copy, modify, and add to your personal portfolio.

Detailed instructions for completing each section of your portfolio.
Sample documents that you can modify and include in your portfolio.
Information that can be used to develop a portfolio for any sport!
