When you are not suitably prepared, you will be unable to productively & successfully maneuver the perfect job opportunity when it presents itself.
It is always well worth the effort to spend time in preparation for professional success and when the ideal opportunity present itself, you will be able to make full use of such an opportunity. As a matter of fact... when you fail to either set goals beforehand, plan ahead or formulate a professional strategy, you set yourself up for a career path of stagnation, derailments and littered with bitter disappointments. You cannot succeed professionally, unless you suitably prepare yourself for professional success. Success does not come easily, nor magically... a life-time of hard work, dedication, planning and strategizing are needed, ... and the sooner you start to prepare yourself professionally, the better.
