Stéphanie studied Business Administration with the major in tourism in Luzern and achieved the bachelor in 2009. After finishing her studies she was searching a trainee job in marketing or tourism to gain experience in the professional world.
To Stéphanie Jäggi Curling means a lot, but it is not the only thing that counts. She is very conscious about her education and future professional career.
“Although curling always had a high significance to me I always wanted to have a good education. Because I have always known that I will never be able to make a living of my athletic performance and my goal has always been to combine both - sports and education.
The IOC Athlete Career Programme in cooperation with Adecco gave me a perfect start in to the world of work together with reaching my goal. Through this temporary job experience, I am able to get my first experiences with the world of work but I also have enough time to prepare for the upcoming sports season”.
