Secrets of the Job Hunt

Independence Day

There probably aren't a lot of people thinking about job hunting today.

After all, the 4th of July is a time when most of us attend barbecues or go on vacation. But as you eat your hot dogs and burgers today, think about the fact that over 230 years ago American Citizens risked everything for the Independence that we enjoy today.

Think about our founding fathers who would have been hanged if they were caught by the British. Think about the soldiers of the Continental Army who fought bravely and in some of the worst conditions ever, stood firm against the Redcoats. Think about 1776 - a year that was the most important year in the most important war in American History.

I'm a huge fan of American History. Lately I've been reading Washington's Crossing which details the incredible struggles of the early years of the revolution. It is truly amazing how close we came to losing the war in 1776. I'm so obsessed with the revolution these days I even started a pet project that offers revolutionary war tshirts.

So as you pop open a beer today raise a toast to the men and women of the revolution. Without them, there would be no July 4th.
