Recently, I was invited to share my experiences with my alma-mater. I chose to talk about how fresh graduates can maximize their career success. While several people will ascribe their success or success of others to luck; it is also silently agreed that success is much more than luck. Therefore I prefer Roman philosopher Seneca’s definition of luck. Luck is what happens when opportunity meets preparation. Seneca Therefore I focused on how one can increase their luck by working on creating opportunities and being prepared.
