Sport is a way of disconnecting, releasing accumulated tension, maintaining a healthy lifestyle and physical fitness while promoting your well-being. But what if sport could also be a real asset to your working life? It is possible to evaluate professional skills through the practice of a sport, which requires, whatever it is, concentration, self-confidence or even combativeness. During a recruitment process, some recruiters may be interested in the sports you play and mention on your CV. This can give them an idea of your strength of character and desire to excel. In other words, soft skills that highlight perseverance are essential in a company. To go even further in analysing these skills derived from physical activity, some job fairs have even set up interviews during which they ask candidates to choose the sport that best suits them. Analytical skills, concentration and self-confidence are then assessed in a quick demonstration.
By practising any physical activity, you become aware of your strengths and weaknesses which requires you to set achievable goals: practices that you can transfer to your professional life to develop learning skills and better performance. Let's not forget that human relations when practising a sport involve mutual aid, complicity and camaraderie: behavioural skills that are highly valued in companies and are attractive to employers.
