Land Your Dream Job

Learn the strategies that helped Rachel Balkovec land her first coaching position in professional baseball at just twenty-four and make history twice in a male professional sport.

Hey, I’m Rachel Balkovec, the first woman ever hired as a full time hitting coach and full time strength and conditioning coach in professional baseball.

As a young professional, I had to navigate important and difficult career altering decisions all on my own.

And after years of making mistakes, and struggling to get noticed by the industry, I finally discovered the secret to standing out from a crowded pack, and landing a job in men's professional sports.

Today, when I’m not working as a hitting coach for the New York Yankees, I spend my time teaching other professionals what I’ve learned, helping them navigate all of the challenging, and costly decisions that come with growing a thriving career. 

'I never really liked my resume or cover letter. After talking to Rachel, I made more changes to it in one night then I've made in months. Thank you for helping me get through my cover letter block!’

-- Jeanne, Working Professional

"Rachel's feedback helped me to make my virtual presentation real.  She was able to provoke a deeper thought process that really made me think about why I wanted the position and what would set me apart from others."

— Chelsea, Graduate Student
