Careers in Coaching

By

Looking for an entry level job or internship in coaching? This is an overview of how to approach the search and a list of companies that might have relevant entry level and internship opportunities.


Do you have good people skills? Have you served as a mentor for a program in the past or run a mentoring program? Have you coached a sports team? Consider a career in coaching.

Coaching takes on two major arms: Coaching in the athletic sense and mentoring, particularly serving as a mentor for young people. Kids need mentors and coaches to look up as they grow up, and not everyone has parents and teachers for role models. That’s where you come in.

If you’re good at building connections with people and helping them become their personal best, you could become a mentor or coach to a child or teen who needs a role model. Many of these positions are in non-profits, and recent grads are a great fit for these positions. The specific things you may do vary depending on the organization’s focus, but you might be an academic coach, social mentor, or athletic coach.

If you already have experience working with kids and teens and have experience organizing a group of mentors or volunteers, you could be a good fit for a coach coordinator. This involves recruiting coaches, training them, and making sure they’re doing their very best working with the program’s members.

Most full-time positions in coaching require a bachelor’s degree in most cases as well as some experience, but it’s experience you can get while in college as a volunteer or while working part-time.
