Awesome post Megan! The Cubs can teach us much about the ups and downs of life and the job hunt.

1. Patience - A Cubs pennant is 101 years in the making (going on 102 the way this season is looking). Every Cubs fan has been forced to appreciate that patience is a virtue. The same can be said for finding your dream job - even though you may seem desperate you are doing the right thing by not selling yourself short and holding out for something in your field.

Persistence - Probably the most important thing when you're out there interviewing, being turned down, and having to pick yourself up and try again and again. You can't focus on "Why didn't they like me", you just have to understand that the situation wouldn't have been a good fit, and every 'failure' builds and will (eventually) lead to success.

Let's just hope it doesn't take 101 years to get where we want to be. Damn Cubs, gotta' love em!
