At NexGoal, we take the placing of our athlete-candidates in their new careers very seriously—which is why our project coordinators spend so much time working with each candidate to put them in the best position to succeed. Once our candidates are placed, we like to take the time to share that candidate’s experience with all of you.

Recently, Taylor Evans had the opportunity to work with former University of Michigan football player, Ron Buff. Buff wanted to take the next step in his career with one of our valued clients, so he turned to NexGoal after Evans reached out to him. Buff’s dedication to being a team player and leadership skills cultivated while playing football were two major selling points for our client.

Buff (No. 25) playing in Michigan’s 1993 Rose Bowl victory against the Washington Huskies.

When asked why he chose to work with NexGoal, Buff pointed to Evans’ proactive nature on social media to reach out to him. He stated, “Taylor Evans reached out after running across my profile off LinkedIn.”

Next we asked Buff what he enjoyed most about his experience with us throughout the job placement process. “The process was personable and very smooth.”

At NexGoal, one of things we really focus on is allowing our candidates to have a dedicated Project Coordinator, so naturally we always like to ask about the experience the candidate had with them. Buff pointed out that, “Taylor Evans was very professional and a gentleman who would follow up when ever he needed to. My experience with Taylor was very good.”

Finally, we asked him why others should use NexGoal to help find their next career. He stated,

“NexGoal was a very smooth process. Taylor’s follow up was extremely efficient and I would recommend NexGoal to anyone who is seeking employment. Thank you for making this experience pain free.”

The team here at NexGoal would like to thank Ron for his kind words, and we wish him the best of luck in his new career!

If you are looking to change jobs and would like the team here at NexGoal to help you like we did Ron, you can start by filling out our athlete-candidate application here! We look forward to placing you in your “NexCareer!”
