I recently received my BS in Movement Science and am currently studying for ACSM’s HFS certification exam. I feel as though I have a lot of the knowledge necessary for this field, but I have no experience in the practical application of it. I can’t afford to go to the two day seminars they provide (although I am doing the online webinars), and I’m not sure where else I could go to get experience in applying my knowledge!
How did you get your initial experience when you first started in this field? How could I approach a potential employer and sell myself without having experience where I am working directly with clients yet?
Hello Stephanie Scott,
Congratulations; you have all the tools you need to successfully help others.
How to find a mentor? Just go out and ask. What is stopping you from talking to people honestly, the way you are engaging us?
Promote yourself with confidence and authenticity…the rest will follow.
Have fun and take care.
