Career Transition for Athletes
You've built your athletic career on hard work.
Long days on the ice, the court, and the field.
You've spent early mornings in the gym and late nights studying film. You've shared victories with teammates and coaches. But sooner or later, it all has to come to an end. For many athletes, that's when the uncertainty and the fear sets in - and so do the questions about your future.
"HOW DO I TRANSLATE MY ATHLETIC SKILLS TO THE BUSINESS WORLD?"
"WHAT OCCUPATIONS ARE BEST FOR ME?"
"HOW DO I BUILD MY NETWORK AND START A REWARDING CAREER?"
We are here to help you answer those questions
Our Career Transformation programs are custom-built to help you plan and execute transitions
from athletics to the business world - and beyond.
At Higher Landing, we believe in athletes. We understand the value they can bring to employers across all sorts of industries. Performance under pressure, teamwork and adaptability are as critical skills in business as they are in sports. In our work with professional and amateur athletes, we’ve learned there’s so much of an athlete’s experience that offers value in a post-athletic career.
OUR CAREER TRANSFORMATION PROCESS
First, our coaches help you identify your values, purpose and passions, taking into account your athletic skills and what kind of career you want in the future. Here you start taking control of your future and letting go of the fear and uncertainty.
In stage two, our coaches and marketing team help you create your personal brand -- one that draws on everything you’ve done in athletics -- and applies it to the current job market. At this stage, you’ll see a path forward to a new career and others will see you’re capable of getting there.
Finally, we market you to employers, building connections and helping you land the position you need to kick off an exciting new career. This is where the game changes, where you communicate your value and you land higher.

During the Branding phase of our program, Higher Landing introduces our athletes to our executive panel of industry leaders - the Grizzlies. Our athletes pitch themselves and their value proposition to these senior decision makers, and get valuable feedback and contacts that help them land higher.
