Following my progression and development from an undergraduate Sports Science student to my present position as a lecturer in Coaching and Performance, I sought to reflect upon this journey and how each significant stage of my development has either challenged, developed or influenced my career. In attempting to articulate and disseminate such information I have utilised reflective accounts which have been recorded throughout this time. Consequently, the current paper seeks to present a reflective account of key stages within my own development and career, beginning with the initial stages of a newly graduated sports science intern, into a novice practitioner undertaking a PhD before finally attaining a full-time position in academia. As such, it is hoped that those seeking employment or working in the Sports Science industry will themselves be able to utilise the information provided with their own personal and professional development.
