How to Search

Job hunters get (and give) a lot of advice about how to find a job. Much of this advice is good. If you follow it.

But a successful searcher needs more than the typical tools. She also needs sage wisdom.

Mulla Nasruddin is a legendary Sufi character whose many comical exploits feature him doing strange or funny things that seem illogical to others, but which often point to a higher truth.

In one of his most well-known adventures, he has lost his keys somewhere in his house. So what does he do? He goes outside and starts to look under a street lamp...where, he says, the light is better.

I love such tales! They are funny because they are nonsensical. But upon further reflection, they speak a deeper truth about how we search for meaning.
