Is there a secret to career success?
It’s a question everyone asks.

Well…
𝘞𝘒𝘯𝘯𝘒 𝘬𝘯𝘰𝘸 𝘒 𝘴𝘦𝘀𝘳𝘦𝘡?
Specifically *the* secret to career success?
Guess what:
The secret is…
…. That there is no secret.

Sure, some try to sell you the quickest and easiest way to riches, fame, viral posts, blahblahblah.Β 

There really isn’t a trick or gimmick to it.
To succeed in anything you need to be lucky.

But Luck isn’t always as random as it may seem!
We can work to be luckier.
How?
When you find an opportunity, be prepared to take action.

For job seekers and career advancers this means:

βœ”οΈ Get your resume ready
βœ”οΈ Guard your reputation
βœ”οΈ Tally your accomplishments
βœ”οΈ Network your tail off
βœ”οΈ Offer to help
βœ”οΈ Say β€˜Thanks’ to those who help you

Stop looking for the easy way and instead look for how to be prepared.
