8 Secrets of “Lucky” Job-Seekers

Nina Kim | NonProfitPeople

Keep Your Expectations in Check

So you’re connected, optimistic, spontaneous, and prepared — you should be the luckiest person in the world, right? Not really. The keys to being a truly “lucky” person are patience and persistence. If you’re taking every failed connection or lack of opportunities to heart, you’ll fall into a negative mindset, which will only lesson your luck.

Set realistic goals for yourself, like “At the job fair, I will introduce myself to someone who works at a Boys & Girls Club” or “I will make three new vital connections in the next month.” These goals should be fluid and adaptable to situations in which you find yourself. Don’t let any setbacks get you down — truly lucky people keep on keeping on no matter what.
