Give to Get

The Buddhist concept of karma says, in part, that all of our deeds have effects. These effects are the fruits of our actions. And we may not realize the far-reaching nature of these fruits.

In the West, there's an old saying, "What goes around, comes around" that I think has a resemblance to karma.

The karma of the job search says, If you want to receive something, first you must give something. Freely give your time and talent to others. Give without expectation of getting anything back.

My wife will often say, "You reap what you sow." Again this bit of wisdom has a resonance with karma.

And the lesson for job hunters is clear: You must give to get.
