Job Search Lessons from Super Bowl 51

Congrats to the Patriots, who now hold 9.8% of the 51 SB crowns.  How can their achievement inform your job-search efforts?  We thought long & hard (ok, we gave it about 2 minutes consideration) and came up with this:
  1. Never give up.  Don't despair when things look bleak, keep at it, and you're likely to get a good break or metaphorical lucky bounce that makes all the difference.  You know, the same things your 5th grade P.E. instructor or J.V. basketball coach told you several years ago.
  2. Have Tom Brady and/or Bill Belichick help you with your job search; certainly couldn't hurt.
  3. We're just glad this whole thing is over so we can now fully concentrate on the Caps as well as the continuing what's going to happen w/ Kirk? drama (oh please, make it stop).
That help you?  No?  Well then, how about some terrific jobs today, as well as previously noted opportunities closing this week?  Get to it.
