Goodluck Darriel.

hmm the volunteer part was just to get my foot back in the door. already have worked at the D-1 level as a GA ( both as a S&C Coach and as an athletic trainer) and have coached HS for 10 years
working with athletes is what I do best and is the most rewarding. That said I certainly would not turn down a job right now; not really wanting to go back to the public school at all

I enjoy the private sector, the money is great and I still get the chance to work, develop and have a impact on athletes lives. BTW, just because you volunteer doesn't mean you should land a job, takes a lot more effort then that. Why do you want to work at the NCAA level?? Do you enjoy running out onto the field every Saturday etc etc?

(sigh) been there done that....
even went a did a 3 month volunteer gig at PITT Football to try and get back in the loop.
So far , I have been ignored

I agree with you Darriel, once you leave the field it's very difficult getting back in. Have you thought about moving to the private sector?

I understand your sentiments and applaud your efforts. However, I have done similar only to find that it does not transfer well... At this point I am only interested in a S & C position

I am looking to take a position with student recreation/fitness at Mizzou within the next couple of weeks to at least become involved with a D1 college for a few years. Its better then not working in a college setting at all. Better yet it deals with many issues related to s&c as well like facility, large numbers of students, equipement, supervision, budgets etc. Good transfer to a job down the road in formal strength and conditioning. My certs and degrees are all geared at s&c and yet I am taking a career not directly in that area for now. But it will help me get there at some point. Consider starting off in something close before trying to do battle with the powers that be in the s&c field.

Yes, I know all about that. I been on both sides of the table.
Comment by Darriel Kitchens on March 21, 2010 at 2:36pm
yes, indeed. its all about who you know.....credentials/experience seem to make little or no difference

I would say off of pure numbers yes, but we all know how the strength and conditioning business goes..
