Applying for a job
« on: July 10, 2017, 11:26:05 PM »
So I was told if I wanted to be the HC of our 8U team I have to get a resume together and apply for the job. Funny part is, no one has ever applied for a job that I know of so I am not how serious it will be but I am going to treat it as a real deal. So what should I include in my application/resume? Does anyone have a template, if there is such a thing? Thanks in advance.

Huh?

I thought the 10u coach told you to take the 10u job and he'd coach the 8u team that you did not want to take in the first place after they offered you that 8u team?

I think.

Download a free Resume on line and change it from a job app to a volunteer coaching app. Then ask these knuckle draggers for an application to fill out that they dont have. Then walk away and coach in a real Org.

I' d be asking the Members on this Forum for Letters of Recommendations. Tick tock.

My issue is it is kind of late in the game to find a spot to coach at this year so I am down to two options. Either coach for the org I coached for last year or coach for the org who gave me the boot last year with a different HC that used to be at my current org.

Biography
Dave was a head coach with the Durham Eagles Athletic Association from 1999 through 2010. His teams won ten Consolidated Football Federation championships from 2000-2010, went undefeated in the C.F.F. eight times and won 91 of their last 94 conference games dating back to 1999. Five times in eight years, his teams finished in the “Top 16” football teams in the nation. A firm believer in the importance of academics, his teams have had 44 “Academic All-Americans.” His passion and commitment to academic success lead to his development of the Durham Eagles “Academic Hall of Fame” program in 2002. This program has been further developed to include character-building and leadership development. His written work, “Character, Academics and Leadership: Building the Foundation” has been used as a model by more than one hundred youth sports organizations around the country. He was instrumental in bringing in the educational tutoring firm, “Supplemental Learners” to partner with the DEAA so that his players had access to tutoring throughout the season. His academic emphasis helped lead to the formation of the “Elite Eagles” college scholarship program in which more than $30,000 has been raised for all Eagles players who plan to attend college. He has been nominated for the Positive Coaching Alliance “Double – Goal” Coach Award for 2011 and 2013.

Just a thought but from what I've read and what you've stated, it sort of sounds like they are playing the "Let's make him do a bunch of trivial bs so he'll end up not doing it or he'll make a fuss over it and say screw it" I wouldn't be surprised if they were shocked you submitted a resume.

When I was living on the South Carolina / Georgia border in 2013, I could not find a youth org, middle school or high school that'd hire me.  Resumes don't really get you anywhere.  It's all about who you know, or who knows you.

I just put the very top stuff.  I figure they'll google me.  And if they don't care enough to google an applicant, I don't want to work there, anyway.  I do check my first page on google, though, in case there's something I need to get ahead of, as they say.

I detest bios.  I put them together only after great delay and lots of prodding.

My last coaching job, they kept saying how impressive my resume was.  I kept telling them, "It's a resume.  If it's not impressive, you're just not trying."

You could always send one as soon as you get home, and tell them you already have it ready because you needed it very recently for something.  If they can make you wonder, you can make them wonder.

When I got my first middle school job, the header knew me.

When I got my second middle school job, the header knew me.

When I got my third middle school job, the header knew me.

When I got my first high school job, the director of the school knew of me.

When I got my second high school job, they were planning to run the Double Wing and an AC on their staff knew me.

When I got my third high school job, the Varsity HC called and spoke to people who knew me.

When I got my fourth high school job, the Varsity header ran the Double Wing and his previous JV OC knows me.

Sorry. I wasn't disagreeing with you. I just forgot my smiley face when I posted my lame joke referencing the playbook thread.

The org I coached at previously doesn't want me coaching anymore, not even as a bag holder, mainly because they asked me to speak my mind and I did. They would rather go short staffed than have me be an AC on one of their teams. Meanwhile, two other orgs in nearby towns are interested in having me come on board. The first one ended up not working out as a HC because they cancelled the middle school program due to lack of players, although the offer is there to help out any of their other teams as an AC. The other one may have multiple options for me - AC or HC - depending upon what the numbers look like once registration closes on the 31st. So, for me at least, the opposite is true. I guess I need to work on my reputation as a coach first.
