I was taking a train back from New York yesterday after finishing the Avon Breast Cancer walk (thanks everyone for your contributions) and I met a savvy young woman who made me think a bit differently about job searching.
There’s so much job-hunt advice out there today that we forget about how luck plays a pivotal role in the process. That’s not going to make many of you feel great. It’s easier to think that if I do everything right I’ll end up with the gig I want. Alas, sometimes the stars have to align just right before you get your big break.
