Time to share some highlights and what we have been doing under 2020. In this post, we share some important moments and steps for Sportidealisten’s development. We had a good start and then as the rest of the world, a pandemic hit all of us hard. However, we still saw growth and new ways to develop our services and this and a bit more will be shared.

Highlights of Sportidealisten 2020

While we all are excited that 2021 is finally here, 2020 was a good year for us – largely thanks to people like yourself who make us a part of your monthly routine! We couldn’t come to this point without you and therefore we want to highlight our year in review including the most popular reads 2020.

I developed into we. From being an one-man show we got two more people working hard and passionate about building the #1 sports jobs platform. With our innovative and open-minded mindsets and thanks to your loyalty and trust, we have managed to develop the website with an improved design and content which seems to be enjoyed by everyone. The same goes for our newsletter that has gotten some improvements.

In 2020 our founder and CEO, Jakob had the great opportunity to moderate a panel at the Creative Business Cup Sweden with world-class athletes. If you want to learn more about this, we shared a four part series about this (part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4).

Sportidealisten, Transferable skills in sports

Soon after this we developed our list we call “the Passion List” where people looking for sports jobs can add themselves onto the list. A great feature in order to better connect future employees and employers in the sports industry and to provide impactful matches between hiring managers and job seekers in sports.

Covid-19 has also put many people out of work and we felt the urge to help out. Our job is to find yours and we want you to feel empowered and ready for a successful career in the sports industry. Therefore we developed another feature called “Develop your career“. We have shared lots of education that is free to learn on this page. Since we know how important personal development is, it is crucial to always learn something new every day and we hope that you have had the opportunity to do so.

Lastly, during 2020 we took another big step by creating the first-ever education for club directors in sports in Sweden together with Sportseminarier. We had a good mix of sports and the clubs were a great spread from around the country thanks to our online format.

Our vision

We believe that all sports bring a lot of engagement and emotions and that is why many of us want to work in sports. Our vision is to have a world where everyone can work with their passion.

I personally want to thank you for being part of Sportidealisten. Without you and your passion this platform and vision wouldn’t have been the same. As I usually am talking about it takes a lot of time to find the dream job in sports but also to find and recruit the best candidates. And from the start of Sportidealisten I have wanted to change this and I know that we can change this. Let us keep working to make employment in sports easy, fun and allow more people to work with their passion.
