1. Introduction: Hi, My name is Sam Moment. Welcome to this course on finding work in European football. Before we start, I'll give a short introduction about myself. I have had the privilege of working for over 15 years in the sports industry and companies like you a for which is the governing body of European football. Great sports marketing agencies. Such a CSM on team marketing, the London 2012 Olympic bid committee as well was in dozens of other sports related projects. Well, this course is about to theme which many people ask me for which very few people have the answer to, which is what is the best way to enter the football industry. The idea off this course comes from dozens of people who have sent me questions about how to work with football, and here I have to demystify a bit of this subject. What Schuller in this course is the following how to network in this industry the best seminar still football, the importance of volunteering, how to prepare for a job interview in the football industry, the best job fair, the best website. How to become a freelancer, the best educational courses in undergrad masters and executive levels. And I also tackle in depth the subject about women in football. The idea is not only that this course, but all future courses are actionable and that you can implement the ideas immediate. There is a workbook in the project segment off this course to write down your notes, but to provide links to all relevant content discussed in each chapter. Also included in the course is a very helpful must read guide with over 500 employment sites in men's and women's football related to clubs, associations, federations, confederations agencies, brand sponsors. If you have missed the other, of course, is produced here. Feel free to watch them without further ado. Let's begin. A common question I have been asked repeatedly by either contacts of friends is what is the best way to enter the football industry. To put matters into perspective, I receive on average at least two Lincoln messages per week about this subject. This course has been created as a response to this demand. So based on my 15 years of work in this business, I'll try to explain in the simplest way possible how to get your foot into this vast industry. Football, after all, is an activity that generates over $30 billion per annum on this course is focused on. Those were willing to take a step towards this activity. Before we start, I would like to introduce myself. I was born in England on my parents are originally from Iran. When I was still a toddler, I moved to Brazil and lived over two decades there before moving to Switzerland. A crazy background with generated the most of the things a strong passion for travel in sports, full board particular my career and football started almost by accident. After studying business management in university, I was very frustrated with my career options, which included, amongst other things, looking for jobs and banks. Since I specialized in finance one day, stimulated by my father's advice, I decided to use the computer and search for the term jobs in football on the Internet. I ended up stumbling across the master degree, which caught my attention. I eventually applied for admission to it and was accepted to enroll in a master course in sports administration and technology co signed by a few Swiss universities and endorsed by the International Olympic Committee I will talk about this later. In the course during my Masters on, internship was obligatory and I interned at the London 2012 bidding Committee, which at the time was competing against serious candidates such as Moscow, Madrid, New York and Paris. In the end, London won the bit. Soon after my graduation from the Masters at the end of 2004 I applied for a job. But you A for the governing body of European football on after a few rounds of interviews, was eventually hired within you. A. For I worked for eight years in two distinct areas. During my 1st 4 year period, I was responsible for supporting officials, associations and clubs in the operational aspects of football within a unit called Match Operations. I was then promoted to a manager position and in my 2nd 4 year spell at you A. For I was responsible for the regulations of club competitions as well as their sporting parameters, which included being responsible for the competition entries for months, access calendars, fixture principles and coefficients within the club competitions units. It was a great privilege to be involved at the heart of the UEFA Champions League a tournament which I always watched as a child. At the end of 2012 with the FIFA Men's World Cup heading to my home country of Brazil in 2014 I decided to leave you a for and Switzerland and moved to really genero toe work as a business director at CSN, one of the leading sports marketing agencies in the world. At CSN, I led the Special Projects Unit where, amongst other projects, I was responsible for the Ambassador program for the Coca Cola FUE for World Cup trophy tour, the logistics operations and planning off the participation of the Football Federation of Australia, the World Cup in Brazil, the 2014 FIFA World Cup mascot operations, as well as the player ambassador program for the Budweiser Hotel. All of these projects were very challenging and exciting to say the least. After the conclusion of the FIFA World Cup, I stayed a couple more years in Brazil at CSM for projects involving the Olympic Games in Rio 2016. Soon after the conclusion of the Games are decided to move back to Europe to become an independent sport professional, which is my current position since 2016 I have worked in exciting projects with team marketing, which is the sole exclusive agency of the UEFA Derek dedicated to commercial partnerships in the club competitions and there I was responsible for the promotional plans aimed at driving the growth of the UEFA Champions League outside of Europe in key strategic markets at you A. For I still freelance as a football operations specialist which include, amongst other tasks, being a venue director as a venue director, I am responsible for the coordination, an efficient running of you A for club competition matches above all, to keep a global overview on any issues that may affect the running of the match on match officials or on the clubs. I am assigned to different clubs every season. All this experience within football has made brought me to this point launching this course . I have extensively researched the topic, talked to quite a few experts in the industry and have come to the conclusion that the following topics are the secret to enter in the world of football and eventually be successful in terms of financial investment. The course will cater for people were willing to invest in different levels in their careers. For those wishing to spend little money on implementing their part into football, I provide ideas or networking how to prepare for a job, interview, literature, podcasts, websites, searches or even freelance work. For those wishing to spend more, I provide advice on investments such as a job fair and seminars, and ultimately, for those willing to make more sophisticated and greater investment. Further ideas such as executive education, undergraduate courses or, ultimately a master course are provided. I will also tackle the importance and unique opportunities available for women in football . Finally, I hope that this course is able to cater not only for students but also for people who are late in their career but are considering changing jobs. Above all, I hope you really enjoy it. 2. Networking: networking and the importance of making contacts in the football industry. The importance of networking in building a great career in the football industry or other industries, as a matter of fact, cannot be underestimated. In football, particularly where the whole system is interlinked, networking is essential. The amount of time I have crossed paths in completely different projects with the same people in football is phenomenal. And many who work in the industry will say that football is a very small world. Why is that? Well, this is due to one main reason football is based in a pyramid system which starts with the players need needing to be affiliated to a club. A club that needs to be affiliated to the National Association, a national association that needs to be affiliated to confident nation. And finally, the six confederations which need to be affiliated to FIFA, the governing body of football. Within this organizational period mitt, everyone who's connected to it is often in close contact with each other. The landscape of modern football has evolved into a multi $1,000,000,000 industry, with large clubs and organizations making hundreds of millions in revenue each year as the size and scale of the industry grows each year and shows no sign of slowing down. The opportunities for work increases, however, for new graduates or those wishing to start their career, finding work in such a competitive field has become more and more challenging. Jobs at high profile companies are in high demand, and it can be difficult to gain the experience needed to impress employers. Success in life is often a function of the people you know on the information you have at your disposal. Networks are a source of information about what is happening in an industry, and it also provide contact with people that can hear our ideas and can help us make better decisions. Networking is part of our lives. As humans, we meet people every day and make new connections without even realizing it. However, the idea of professional networking often causes some people to feel nervous. This is because we often think we are overbearing when we asked to connect with someone we have never met before. For those looking to break into an advance in highly competitive industries like the football industry, having a strong and reliable network can be a golden ticket as often said, When looking for work, it's not what you know, but who you know this saying especially pertinent in the football industry, where jobs can sometimes be so sought after that known the right person can make a notable difference. Networking is all about establishing and maintaining mutually beneficial relationships with other professionals. He's gonna be professions within your industry or even outside it, provided there is a useful exchange of ideas and knowledge. Often the most connected people are the most successful. A networking can be useful not just in finding a job but in advancing your career. Having a strong and reliable network of professionals can lead to greater opportunities to connect with mentors and advisers. Increase your visibility with senior management and even though develop your expertise and learn new skills. However, there is more to networking in the industry than just engaging in activities. You need to be more purposeful, intentional and strategic about your networking activities. You need to find people who provide you with information, connect you to other people. Advocate for you, help you accomplish your job mentor, guide and sponsor you Tips on successfully networking Finding the career of your dreams may come down to knowing the right people and establishing connections in the industry. So what is the best way to go about building a strong network and landing your dream career ? If you're still in education, either in sports management or another course, higher education can provide you with many opportunities. You will find different ways to build a strong network that may help you later in your career whilst in education. If you're studying a sports related subject, most of the people you meet on your course will also go on to look for careers in the sports industry. Making connections with other graduates who go on to be professionals themselves can be invaluable. Many courses will also offer internships to students. Internships can be a great opportunity to not just pick up valuable experience but also to meet and connect with professionals working in the industry. Many former interns go on to work for the company. The Internet as a hiring manager will give priority to someone who has already worked at the company. If you're not in education, there are still plenty of opportunities for you to build your network. There are lots of industry events held for people in your situation, helping to connect recruiters to those looking for work in the industry. If you're planning on attending your first event, here are a few tips to help you make the most of your time and hopefully build some useful and enduring connections. Find an event to attempt. Making the first step is always the hardest, but finding where to begin is fairly easy. There are many great job fairs, conventions and events held every year for the sole purpose of networking and hearing from industry experts. There is much to gain just by going and listening to the conferences or talks, but you will also have a chance to meet and talk to people with it working in the industry . This gives you an ideal opportunity to connect and learn from those who were once in a similar situation to you. Examples of some networking events in the football industry could attend include the Football Trade Directory, which holds multiple events every year at football clubs across the UK There is also the football world Congress, which features experts and exhibitions from leading industry professionals with many opportunities were network plan before you attend. It is always best to plan ahead, and we're hoping to build a network. It is definitely a great idea. You can find out which companies will be attending the events beforehand and decide which ones you would rather speak to and hear from. You can use social media like Lincoln to help build up an idea of who you should be talking to show a keen interest. If you're planning on working in the football industry, the chances are you're going to be pretty interested in hearing from industry professionals . It is important to show genuine interest on a willingness to learn, not just expect to be handed a job for turning up. When you meet people that events, be sure to ask them about their company position and how they got started. If you show interest in a person without expecting anything in return, they're likely to appreciate you. Maintain your network off course. It is one thing to build a network, but if you do not give attention and care to your relationships, they will fade away and lose touch. Once the event is over, send your new contacts a quick message, saying it was nice to meet at the event. That way they will have a reference off who you are and where you met. Try to keep your networks strong by staying in touch and possibly arranging to meet up with future events. You may also want to share industry specific news or other articles, which they may be interested in connect with rising talents. There are rising talents in the football industry. It is easier to connect with someone who is rising within our organization than with top executives. A middle level manager in an organization might be very much connected to the top management. Besides, when you build relationships with rising talents, at some point they will be in top level management. Remember, you're not only networking for today's needs, but for future needs as well. You don't have to wait until the day you will need help or favor. Before you take action on adding important people to your network. You might not get the response you desire by then. Identifying specific networking prospects. Create a list of specific contacts to prospect and connect with. Look for the people who share professional attributes. You can learn from smart networking will require research strategy and visibility when you make your first contact focus on asking for career advice and what networking opportunities and not necessarily a job using Lynton as a networking tool These days we have technology and social media on hand to make a lot of our more challenging tasks easier. Social media sites such as LinkedIn are powerful tools for building and maintaining your professional network. Much business is conducted online in the modern world, and lengthen can help you to find and build a global network of professionals in your industry. When starting to build your connections on LinkedIn, you will, of course, want to connect with people that you know you can add people directly from the context list of your email, making sure to accept connections that you receive as well to build a strong connection and increase your visibility and search results. However, you will also need to connect with and accept connections from people who do not know. You should aim to reach out and connect with people in your industry, and those you might be able to learn from and share knowledge with it is important when reaching out to customize your message Rather than just sending the standard, I'd like to add you to my network. This way you can convey your intentions and leave a lasting positive impression. Here's an example of a good personal message, which was sent by someone hoping toe switch careers into the football industry. Hi. First of all, I'd like to apologize for adding You certainly don't know me. I never heard about me, So let me introduce you myself. My name is Frankel. I'm Brazilian but currently live in Bucharest, Romania, with my wife and daughter. We came to try a better life in Europe and found in remain a great job opportunities. I liked the country, my work. But do you know the same? Happy are those who do what they like? Well, I found out a long time ago that I'm passionate about football but never took it serious. And today a regret. Maybe because I didn't have better conditions. I don't know. I don't know if this is related. The fact that in Brazilian we truly love football, but it certainly inspires me. I have great passion for football and for competitions, especially the European ones in the World Cup. I believe would be a completely happy and realized person working in the football industry , being on a club, national association or organization such as FIFA, you a for or even federation's. I believe I identify myself with football competitions, the stadiums, environment, the fans, the competition. Having this said, I'd like to know if there's any way that I could have the chance to make this dream come true, where wherever it is, as long as it can be happy working with football. I know I don't have necessary experience, but I need a chance to start and show all my potential, my willingness, my determination, my commitment on my passion. Sometimes we have to take a step back in order to give two steps further in the future. This is how I think I already have the know. Therefore it's worth a try. If I get a yes, I'm already in advantage, so I would really appreciate if you can help me or introduced to someone else who could help me to give the first step. In order to make this dream come true, I'll be very happy to receiving a response to this message. Although the message is quite long. It provides the recipient with a clear message about why they have been sent the invite. It is a good idea to be honest and upfront, that you hope to build your connections within the football industry to help build a career . You may also want to add any skills or expertise which you can offer, perhaps referencing your education or current employment. Building a good professional network is not easy, but sites like LinkedIn certainly make it simpler for you to connect and share ideas with people across the world. With this in mind, you can hopefully build a network and kick start your dream career. 3.

We must try for equality as we are not there yet, but we have come a long way and it looks to be heading in the right direction. I hope the growth of women's sport allows organizations and clubs to look for the best person for the job instead of considering gender.

Be prepared for a tough ride at times and be motivated by setbacks.

When women are afforded the same career opportunities as men and there is lack of gender discrimination, we see that they can be just a successful in the football industry than any other area of business too. Although improvements have been made, there is still work to do in ensuring that women are given the same opportunities as men and can build successful careers in the football industry.

The football industry has been growing at an astounding rate in recent times, year by year new financial records of broken in terms of transfers, sponsorships and overall revenue of clubs. Although this growth has been seen all over the world, the wealth of football clubs has grown particularly in Europe. The primarily clubs now have more than five billion euros a year and European clubs make up more than 70% of global transfer expenditure. Although some experts question whether the industry can keep growing at the same pace, there are as yet no signs of a slowdown. Football continues to obtain increasing attention in new markets around the world, such as the USA and China. In this section, we will look at the brief comparison off interviews for normal jobs and those for jobs in the football industry. Then look at the interview formats involved, the skill set that you should display, the questions you may be asked and the questions that you can be asking your prospective employer. Additional advice will be provided to help you in the interview process, which will be relevant to those searching for a job in the football sector. And finally, a few examples of job rose and football will be given at what and what information interviewers are looking for from you. As the football industry expands into new markets, clubs and organizations face new challenges the industry must deal with and make use of the latest technology. The expectations and the minds of new consumers must also be met, along with ensuring that the sports is fair and accessible to all. Comparing the normal interview toe a football interview. This can seem strange, but the process is our routes, remarkably similar as a football club, is still a business. For example, one of the functions of the Football Association is a regulatory authority similar to the Prudential regular to authority, who have a similar role within the financial services in the United Kingdom. As a result, you will find the process, job direction and skills required for a job in football is comparable toe a regular job in a similar position. The difference between them, however, is emotional attachment. This difference can vary in degree as well. A good way to illustrate this is through a child's lifetime, dream or ambition. It would be fair. To say a common dream for a child is to grow up and be a footballer, whereas if we keep to the same line of comparison, you would find very few Children who would want to grow up and be an accountant. As a result, the main difference between an interview for a normal career on one involving football is the emotional attachment. It is a longing and that you wanted more that you are in some way fulfilling that lifelong dream or ambition of being involved. Interview formats. You'll find that similar to normal jobs when looking for a job in the football sector, the process of the interview and its former can range widely. Below is a brief description off some of the four months you can expect when looking for a job in the football industry and being accepted for an interview. 1 to 1 interview.

Each of them will have a specific role that have a vested interest in you and what you can bring to the table if you are.

However, a phone interview is a common format, but which an interview is undertaken. Different skills will be involved here, as they of course, will not be able to physically see you. However, it doesn't mean that there will be more scrutiny on other skills, such as your ability to communicate. Group interview. This can happen at any job level, although it will occur less frequently at the higher job. This form of interview has a different type of atmosphere, and you will need to be prepared in a different way to other formats. A common problem with a group interview is finding your element, but that we mean how exhibit exhibitionist toe appear. This is important because you do not want to be the church mouse that hides in the background, and no one noticed Aziz. You will have little chance of success in this for months. Intern Being loud and stealing the show for the wrong reasons will also not help you. Thus, you need to find your natural medium to correctly showcase your skills to the best of your ability whilst also receiving the recognition you deserve. For live case studies watching the reality television show The Apprentice can help in providing you with further ideas and understanding. Interview.

Your potential employer is never looking for a one dimensional character or a one trick pony. Instead, as Stewart bugs, the brand aptly describes, your employer will be looking for a field of ponies. Although each employer make look for different qualities and skills that you possess or made place different levels of importance toward different traits. Below is a few traits and skills that you should display within your interview. Teamwork.

At the end of the day, you want to feel that you gave it your best shot conclusion in general.
