Understanding the vision of an institution is critical for any athletics department so it can move forward in a positive manner that assists in the overall mission of the institution. Institutions benefit when the entire administrative staff and the student-athletes who represent them have similar visions and understand how to work to attain that vision.
ASC offers three types of job searches. has conducted numerous plans that assisted institutions in determining a vision to which everyone at the colleges and universities can commit. We study the history of the department to see what has been successful, what needs to be tweaked, and what needs to be revamped. We determine what is important to the institution and find ways to get them where they want to be.
This type of search includes identifying, evaluating and interviewing candidates as well as conducting background checks and negotiating terms of the contract.
This process can enhance the candidate pool and save committee members time that can be channeled into other areas of the search more suited and better handled by on-campus committee members. ASC will tailor its search to meet the client’s desires and needs.
One of our most popular, the modified search gives the institution’s committee the option to participate in the search as much or as little as they wish by selecting certain aspects of the job search such as posting the job announcement, vetting finalists with input from ASC, organizing and conducting interviews, negotiating terms of the contract, etc. to be carried out by the institution.
A modified search has been especially valuable for institutions with limited budgets who are involved in searches for such positions as athletic directors and who understand the value of input from consultants. This process allows the search committee to proceed with its normal processes while using ASC to provide valuable information about applicants from sources in the industry who can and will give frank and accurate information and to provide additional candidates who may not have submitted an application without specific knowledge about the position.
Athletics Staffing and Consultants use our contacts to develop a diverse pool of candidates who could be interested in the position. After identifying the prospective candidates, ASC contacts each one to discuss the position and see if they have an interest. ASC is proud of is its pledge to promote diversity. For many universities it is difficult to compile a diverse group of candidates. Athletic directors and presidents often spend countless hours trying to diversify their pool of applicants. Let ASC do the work for you. ASC’s prospective candidate list will bring a qualified and diverse pool of applicants so the search committee has multiple options for the ideal fit.
Depending on your needs and financial capabilities.. ASC can conduct a comprehensive search, a modified search or offer a list of diverse and qualified candidates who fit the needs of your institution or conference. With vast group of contacts, ASC will be able to search and place proper personnel in positions within the athletics department including coaches, athletics administrators (athletics directors, senior women administrators, business managers, compliance directors, fundraisers, sports information directors, trainers, etc.), and conference administrators. Again, what makes ASC unique is the fact that we will design a search that is cost effective for your situation and your needs.
This popular, and least expensive service, is to provide a prospective candidate list.
