Sometimes finding the best job can seem even harder than hunting down a four-leaf clover. Sure, some of it may rely on luck, but ultimately, we think you make your own luck. With a little help from the staffing experts at That’s Good HR, you can take steps to find a career that you’ll feel lucky to have. 

Leverage your connections

You can always apply for jobs where you don’t know anyone or much about the company, but we find that candidates have more luck on their side when they leverage existing connections. Reach out to friends, family and past coworkers to see if they know of any hiring companies that may be a good fit. And when you work with That’s Good HR, you’ll always know that you have a connection to your potential employer. We know the city of Indianapolis inside and out, and we are ready to match you with the right employer. 

Improve your resume

One of the first ways that employers learn about you and your skills is through your resume, so let us help you make it a good one. We can help you eliminate these “lucky seven” things off of your next resume, and our talent acquisition partners can also discuss what you think are the most important parts of your experience so that we can bring them up with your potential employers. The way that we give your resume a voice for hiring companies is one of the “luckiest” parts of partnering with That’s Good HR. 

Find a good luck charm

We know … we just said that you don’t have to rely on luck to get a job. But science has shown us that lucky charms and little superstitions can work if you think they work! If you have a “lucky shirt” you can wear on your next Zoom call or a special “interview day” ritual, believing that you have luck on your side can actually improve your mental and physical performance. It may be a placebo effect, but it certainly can’t hurt to give yourself a little confidence boost when you’re feeling nervous.
