Changing the Job Search Playing Field, One Athlete at a Time: Takes Job Hunting Athletes From the Locker Room to the Board Room

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - February 2, 2011) - Just in time for the Super Bowl, GameProvenExecutives announces the nationwide launch today of its unique career portal for athletes and former athletes of all levels,

Rather than just another job website, changes the corporate playbook and turns the traditional job board model upside down, recognizing that what makes one a successful athlete is also exactly what most employers are looking for. Add to that value-based content that combines a healthy dose of competition with a philanthropic component to raise funds for a favorite charity or an alma mater's athletic department, and you've got a winning formula.

Why a website with jobs for athletes? It is no secret that many of the intangible qualities that athletes bring to the game are invaluable in the workplace as well, and that hiring an athlete just makes good business sense. Sales guru and New York Times best-selling author Jeffrey Gitomer says, "What I found most interesting was that the people who played sports are among my best employees. Not just based on their job experience, but equally based on their athletic experience, their team experience, their competitive experience, their coaching experience and their winning experience."

Athletes and former athletes often bring more to the table than the average job applicant, just as GameProvenExecutives does in the job search arena. The GameProven team has over four decades of career coaching, executive search, college recruiting and career transition expertise.

With nearly as many years of experience on NBA courts and NFL fields, it's clear that GameProven's team has already made victory a habit.

GameProvenExecutives... helping athletes get jobs.
