Hollywood is doing a very good job of keeping the rest of the world in suspense.
We are impatiently waiting to hear who will play the smouldering Christian Grey in Fifty Shades, and we are equally eager to know who will be singing the theme song to the 23rd Bond film, which is due for release next month.
There has been some speculation that the incredibly talented Adele has been given the honour of singing the theme tune to Skyfall – and the 24-year-old has hinted at it herself in the past year.
During an interview on the Jonathan Ross show in September 2011, Adele told Ross and the rest of the audience that she was “going back in the studio in November, fingers crossed.”
“Well this is actually a theme, what I’ve got to do for, um... Wow. That’s really giving something away, isn’t it?” she continued.
Whoops! When Ross hummed the 007 theme music, the Adele laughed it off and said ‘no’ – but was that just an automatic reaction?
With the latest Hollywood goss in mind, we have compiled a list of the top five Bond theme songs for graduates:
Rather than opting for jobs that will win you higher prizes, or a bigger salary, go for jobs which you will enjoy (which is something the majority of graduates are doing anyway).
This way, you will not only be happier but also are likely to care more about your work, put more effort in, perform very well and get promoted faster! You could end up reaping the financial rewards further on down the line.
Never say Never Again
Or just never say never, meaning: don’t dismiss a job or entire industry because you think your degree and skills won’t have any use there.
English graduates can end up working in technology firms, ex-History students can become accountants as easily as Maths graduates, etc.
Tomorrow Never Dies
Never lose hope! Rejection after rejection is enough to put anyone off, but try not to let it get to you. You need a thick skin in the jobs market jungle
if you want to get anywhere.
The World is not Enough
Especially not in the current global jobs market. However, it is worth bearing in mind that countries such as China and Australia could offer jobs that are simply not available in the UK.
