Chelsea fans will have been left disappointed after last night’s game against Juventus.
The Blues drew 2-2 with Italian football club Juventus in yesterday’s Champions League match.
Expectations were thwarted as new player Oscar’s two ‘beautiful’ goals went to waste, and the Italian team caught up.
Roberto Di Matteo, current manager of Chelsea and, ironically, an Italian former footballer, said he felt “disappointed and a little bit deflated” that they only came away with a draw despite finding themselves in a “fantastic” position to win the game.
“We feel disappointed because we should have closed the game and brought the win home,” he added.
How can graduates make sure they bring the win home and clinch career victory in their job hunt?
Map out your field of play
Remember that you don’t have to just apply for jobs in industries related to your degree. In fact, in the current jobs market, it may be sensible to branch out a bit. For example, sports graduate jobs
could be perfect for an ex-Maths student with enough sporting talent and interest.
Referees are a very important part of the job application process, but one that often gets forgotten. Tacking references on to the end of your CV provides extra, complimentary information and reinforces what you’ve written yourself, which is reassuring for employers.
You’ve got to the interview stage and you’re SO close to getting that dream job. But remember; even though you are close to your goal, there is still a possibility things could go wrong. It is worthwhile spending some time working on your interview skills
to increase your chances.
It is important to take a breather while job hunting. If you deny exhaustion and continue sending out job applications, they are likely to be lower quality than what you are capable of, which reduces your chances of getting a job. Take a break to re-energise, think tactics and up your game.
It is equally important to bask in your success after finally scoring a job following months spent filling out application forms and emailing CVs. The only thing to do in this situation is relax and celebrate (and get attuned to early mornings!).
