Finding a Job
Create a LinkedIn account
These days, a LinkedIn account is your professional resume. The good news is that athletes have a great reason to start a LinkedIn page and it’s very easy to set up.
Most people use LinkedIn to connect professionally, grow their network, show off their resume and build connections. Also, it's a great platform to search for jobs.
Podium is a platform that helps connect New Zealand’s top athletes with employment opportunities that will support and be flexible around their sporting aspirations, as well as life post-sport.
