How should you play your professional hand when it comes to career poker?
First you need to know what type of “hand” you are holding.
For the sake of this example we are going to pretend that you are playing “Texas Holdem Career Poker” where you are dealt two cards with the potential to pair them with three other cards (the variables in the job market and the variables with the employers you are interviewing with are the “flop” or the other three cards that you can pair your cards with).
You can evaluate how good your hand is by your career history.
In order to ascertain what your “hand” is, use this quiz below:
1) Are you currently employed?
(give yourself 2 points for for this if you are currently employed in a full time position OR give yourself 1 point if you are currently working part-time or currently contracting)
2) Do you have recently stability/longevity on your resume?
(give yourself 1 point for every year of recent job stability that you have with your MOST RECENT position up to 5 points)
3) Do you have a Bachelors Degree or higher degree?
(if so give yourself 1 point for a BA/BS OR 2 points for JD, MBA or PhD)
4) Do you have experience working for a Fortune 500 company or AM 100 law firm in a full time, permanent capacity?
(give yourself 1 point if the answer to this question is YES)
5) Are you at least intermediate to expert on all of the latest industry appropriate technology?
(if YES then give yourself 1 point if intermediate or 2 points if expert)
Poker Scale-How strong are the two cards you hold in your career?
0-2 points (unsuited 2, 10)

6-8 points (suited 10, Jack)
