Athlete Career & Education Program

Adecco supports Team USA!

As a proud sponsor of the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee (USOPC), we’re making it a little easier for Team USA athletes to realize their gold medal dreams by helping them pursue excellence outside of sport. Through the Athlete Career and Education (ACE) program, we connect with athletes to provide individual career coaching support.

Excelling on a Different Type of Playing Field

Whether athletes are looking for a part-time job while training, preparing for their career transition, or determining their next steps on a long-term career journey, Adecco is here to help!

Eligible athletes can work with a certified career coach, who can provide individual support and connect athletes with the best employer and/or professional development resource to achieve success.

Working with my career coach helped me discover things about myself that are critical for career planning that I wouldn’t have known to explore. It was exciting to learn about how so many attributes that made me a successful athlete will help me be successful in the next step of my career.

Upon my retirement, I was able to work one-on-one with an ACE career coach on things like resume review, mock job interviews, researching companies, networking, and other career development activities which lead me to securing a job as a Digital Community Management Specialist at BP.
