This dataset consists of texts on the career paths of Finnish people who graduated with a Bachelor's or Master's degree in Sports Studies (university of applied sciences) or a Master's degree in Sport Sciences between 2004 and 2015. The dataset contains 61 texts, including seven texts that were collected during pilot testing. The texts were collected using FSD's Penna data collection tool.

In the writing guidelines, the participants were asked to discuss their education and career as well as any career-related turning points in their life. The texts focused on, among other topics, the people, hobbies, and events that had led the writers to different studies and jobs. Additionally, the writers discussed why they were or were not currently working in the sports sector.

Background information included whether the text was collected as part of the pilot testing, the writer's age, gender, attained degree, year of graduation, and field of work. The data were organised into an easy to use HTML version at FSD.

The dataset is available only in Finnish.
