Perseverence in Your Job Search

The World Cup is over, and what an incredible month of football it has been! Although a job search does not require you to dribble the ball past defenders and shoot at a goal, the task can be made easier by adopting the mentality that footballers display- hunger, drive, and motivation.

Lessons can be learnt from the game of football, so you too can join Germany in their time of celebration, and achieve your own job search success!

Metaphorically speaking, you need to set yourself goals. What would you like to achieve in your new job? Would you be looking for a higher management title?

Strategy– You will have the chance to meet with one of our professional consultants, where you can further discuss what your ideal job would be; you may also have questions that you would like to ask. Meeting with you will be a great way for us to get to know you more, which will inevitably help us find you a job that is compatible with who you are and what you want. Here, we will also be able to offer you interview tips and advice to make sure that you have the best possible chance of success.

90 minutes was not enough for the World Cup Final, as Germany and Argentina were forced to battle it out into extra time. Just like yesterday’s game, you will need to show perseverance during your job search. You may face struggles and have periods where you ask yourself ‘is it even worth it?’ but you should always remain focused and never give up. After all, what sort of game would it be if a team decided to give up as soon as they conceded a goal?

Victory- Yes, you finally get the call to say you have been successful! You have defeated every nerve-wracking interview that the qualifying stages have thrown at you, as well as keeping your cool when being asked the most difficult of questions.

It’s very admirable when a team manages to keep hold of their title – you can do the same and achieve longevity in your new workplace by continuing to shine, and showing your employer that they chose the best person for the job!
