Alex Baumann (born March 1985), was a member of Switzerland’s Bobsleigh squad in Vancouver and is aiming for success in Sochi, as well as hoping to gain ground in his career.

He having gained a Masters in Food Science, Alex turned to the ACP to help him find a internship to further improve his skills and career prospects longer-term. His ACP manager helped Alex secure an internship at a prestigious Swiss confectioners. For Alex its an ideal opportunity - he aims to both add to his tally of European and World Cup Medals at the Olympics, but also progress his career: “It’s an ideal flexible solution to combine training. I can establish myself in the working world and optimize my job opportunities after my athletic career.

I enjoy applying my ‘athlete qualities’ - like discipline, dedication, persistence, ambition and motivation – to the challenges and opportunities in the working world. The ACP not only points out general strategies, options and alternatives, but also looks to develop individual, tailor-made solutions.”
