If you are looking at strength and conditioning jobs, chances are your most important question is how do I get hired. And it’s a valid question. As I have mentioned before the strength and conditioning field is a highly competitive field. It should come as no surprise that strength and conditioning coaches are viciously competitive by nature. It sort of comes with the territory.
So how do you land your dream job? Well the short answer is to stand out. You have to realize that you are swimming with sharks on this one. You have to bring more to the table than the other candidates. And of course, like any other job hunt there is some politics involved. Unfortunately, you really can’t control that. You need to focus on what you can control, which is your ability to plan strength and conditioning programs for athletes, and being able to implement them.
Again, all candidates for strength and conditioning jobs will have a CSCS Certification. Most candidates will have the same level of education to an extent. Obviously a master’s degree is more impressive than simply a bachelors. Having said that, the only thing that matters when working with athletes is results. An impressive resume may get you the job, but if all you have is book smarts then you will not keep your job for long.
So how do you learn the secrets of the strength and conditioning industry, and how to be the best strength and conditioning coach possible? Well that used to be a very difficult time consuming task. You had to put in years in the trenches, testing out all your new found theories, and developing your own philosophy. The only problem with this is that it took a long time, and you need a job now. Luckily there is a solution. If you are in the strength and conditioning field, chances are you have heard of Mike Boyle.
