How do you know you’ve found the one?

When I attended a What Color Is Your Parachute? workshop many years ago I was struck by how much the job hunt resembles dating.

The parallels, they are endless. Desperation isn’t good. The more exposure you have to the great big world out there the better decisions you’ll make. Put your best foot forward, but don’t fake it -- lest you be stuck watching football, or fetching coffee, forever.

The most heartbreaking way job hunting resembles dating plays out with people who don’t think they deserve to be happy. They accept the first job they're offered, or marry the first person who asks. First doesn’t necessarily mean worst or even bad, of course. But if you haven’t played the field, how would you know?
