If the prospect of finding a job is daunting, consider what you go through to find the perfect partner. A romantic relationship typically starts with the first date and is fraught with many of the same issues you face when you look for the perfect company to work for. Where do I go to meet people (a good company)? What kind of person (company) is best for me?
Considering how you look for a romantic partner may help point the way to finding the right employment match. And considering how much time you may end up spending at work, finding the right fit makes it just as important.
