When it comes to luck, some people just seem to have it all. Your friend (who you didn't even know was looking for work) lands this great job. Meanwhile, you have been job hunting for weeks now. As frustrated as you might get, some people just have all the good fortune… until now. When it comes to job hunting everyone can have the Irish on their side with these 3 tips:
1. Always network. Network even when you are not currently looking for employment. You never know whom you will meet or when you will be seeking new employment. So when you are in social gatherings make sure to be leaving the best impressions and creating real contacts.
2. Be prepared. Have a working cover letter and resume that can easily be tweaked to a particular position. Also, if you have an account on a job board site, double check that you have all of your necessary information filled out and a general resume posted. These things will shorten the time it takes to apply and will the keep your momentum up during your search.
3. Trust yourself. Confidence is key and also doubles as a magnet for luck! When searching for employment it is crucial to believe in yourself and the skills that you bring to the table. This certainty will make you fearless during the interview process.
