How perseverance and an inspirational women’s football team could help your career
We all know about transferable skills, which can help you to move into new roles even if you don’t have direct experience of the job. Just as crucial in any career are qualities and characteristics you possess as a person, which can help you to succeed in a wide range of different roles, projects and new challenges.
One of the most important for those striving for success in sales recruitment is perseverance. Those who never give up are the ones who will rise through the ranks and hit their targets in this competitive, fast-paced industry.
If keeping on going in the face of rejection, obstacles and stress sometimes feels like a mountain that’s too high to climb, take a look at this amazing example of perseverance.
A women’s football team who hadn’t won a game for two years, and were on a losing streak of 38 out of 41 games (having drawn the other three), have recently scored a triumphant victory.
Yeovil Town Ladies were on a run of terrible luck and had all but been written off by pundits after a long period of defeats, after joining the top-flight Women’s Super League in 2016. But perseverance won the day as well as their recent match against Everton Ladies, thanks to a long-range strike by Hannah Short that left the final score 1-0 to Yeovil Town Ladies.
This story may be about sport, but it is a lesson that sales recruitment professionals should very much take to heart. This team spent two years striving without success, but their efforts eventually paid off thanks to the grit and self-belief of the team and their supporters.
