BUILDING A KNOWLEDGE BASE FOR YOUR SECOND CAREER
The brutal reality is that sport is finite and unless you are at the very pinnacle you will need to find employment post retirement. Some may wish to stay within sport and others may take up roles within the media; however these roles are limited and turnover can be high.
add-victor internships allow you to focus on your sporting goals but simultaneously build experience for a second career. This will not only mean securing a job in your chosen industry but more than that potentially command a more senior entry position and therefore a higher basic salary.
Significant opportunities exist across a range of industries if you recognise the inevitable and are prepared to make that first step to securing your long term future.
The three biggest questions for any athlete are:
+ When will I retire (injury could dictate that)?
+ What will I do?
+ What will I earn?
