The Easter egg hunt holds some lessons for the job hunt, too:
- Be enthusiastic. Expect wonderful things to appear unexpectedly. Enjoy the hunt. Have a spirit of discovery and delight.
- Be curious. Look in unlikely places. The legendary “hidden job market” just means “takes effort and luck to find.”
- Be energetic. Keep moving. Don’t linger in one spot, keep looking. Traffic is always light on the extra mile.
- Play nice. Share information and tips. It’s not a zero-sum game. Everyone can win. Helping others with advice may prove to be an investment, coming back to you in unforeseen ways.
- Starbursts might be flavored wax. The jury’s still out on that one.
