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 Jerry Duval to take the next step in his sales career with one of our valued clients. A former high school and collegiate baseball player at Valparaiso University, Duval embodied the hard-work, dedication and team player mentality shown by athletes, which our client valued very highly for this position.

When asked why he chose to work with NexGoal, the availability of our client’s jobs through various job boards stood out. Duval stated, “An interesting opportunity came through one of the job boards.”

Next we asked Duval what he enjoyed most about his experience with us throughout the job placement process.

“Taylor was very friendly and quick to respond to any issues.”

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. Duval, a man of few words, simply stated his experience with Taylor was “Great.”

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

“Explore all opportunities and leads that come your way. I made a substantial industry change, and Taylor was instrumental in finding a good fit.”

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