Job Search Lessons from Game 7 of the 2016 World Series

The World Series ended in spectacular fashion with a Game 7 between two teams representing franchises with lengthy absences from being World Champions. A game that started with the Cubs up early and tied with a home run against Cubs closer Aroldis Chapman, a game delayed by rain and won in extra innings made for a thrilling and heartbreaking night for the two teams and two cities.

I want to focus on two different lessons from the game and how they relate to job search and business, in general.

After the game, Cubs pitcher Jon Lester was asked about “the curse” the Cubs lived under for 108 years until their win.
