      "I've never considered working within sports physical therapy. I've been working within the healthcare center setting for 5 years and I enjoy the new challenges I face every day. Different patients and different injuries keep my job exciting and make me want to continue in a clinic setting."

      Entry Level

      "My initial drive to become a Physical Therapist started in the sports world when I was a high school athlete rehabbing an ACL injury. As I've progressed through my schooling, I've gained a larger appreciation of the field as a whole in being able to work with a larger population of patients."

      "Before studying at the university, I used to play football. So, the original thought on why I wanted to be a physical therapist was to remain in the sports environment after I'd stop being an athlete. So definitely I'd be interested in working with athletes of any sports, but especially if I had the opportunity to work within a premier league organization, that would be a dream come true for me."ยจ"

      You do a very good job showing a genuine interest in this area of physical therapy. Beware of saying something is your 'dream job' if this would not be a component of the position for which you are interviewing.

I'd be interested in working with athletes from many sports but especially the opportunity to work within a premier league."
