NexGoal is a specialized search and career development business focused on candidates who are former professional and/or collegiate athletes. These former athletes possess core traits (biographical data “biodata”) which have proven over time to be an accurate predictor for future performance.
For decades businesses of all sizes have benefited from the core traits that athletes bring to a corporate team. As a result, the athlete-candidate can give the hiring manager greater confidence in the hire over a candidate who does not have these defined traits in their background.
Our management team is comprised of former collegiate and professional athletes who clearly understand the challenges which athletes face as they make their transition from sports. As experienced search consultants, we also understand the challenges businesses face
in acquiring and retaining the best talent for their team. We are the “go to” resource for both athletes and businesses, acting as an effective bridge between these two groups.
We serve as the conduit between former collegiate and professional athletes and corporations throughtout North America. NexGoal’s mission is to be the premiere most reputable, athlete focused placement career transition resource for former athletes.

Our Franchise Concept:
Business Model - NexGoal International, LLC. serves as a strategic talent acquisition partner for businesses who seek competitively driven talent and who benefit from the core traits that athletes bring to their corporate teams. Our proprietary process of recruiting combined with an exclusive resource of candidates allows NexGoal to serve a niche market that other recruiting companies cannot penetrate.
Franchising – Our affiliate, NexGoal LLC, has been in operation for the past 3 years and has placed candidates all over the country for corporations in a variety of industries. The NexGoal concept really resonates with former athletes. In fact, many former athletes have asked how they can get involved with what we are doing. Typically, after leaving the sport athletes retain a network of business owners and team mates that they stay in touch with. NexGoal plans to franchise similar offices throughout the U.S. and globally
Franchisees are able to invest as Regional Developer or franchises. Regional Developers are designed to develop a specific territory, or a regular Franchise that operates a NexGoal recruitment business. As a Regional Developer, the franchisee would have the opportunity to recruit and support Individual Franchises to be located in its own, exclusive territory.
Regional Developers would also operate one Individual Franchise recruitment business. Regional Developers can then earn income by receiving a portion of the initial franchise fee and ongoing royalties paid by Individual Franchises in their specific territory.
NexGoal has partnered with one of the premier recruiting trainers in the industry (Doug Beabout) to help new franchisees learn the business. We have also sought out strategic franchising partners who have worked in the recruiting business and have successfully opened recruiting franchises throughout the U.S.
