The force is strong with us today as we celebrate May the Fourth, also known as Star Wars Day! For many of us, Star Wars is more than just a movie franchise - it's a way of life. The epic story of the Jedi, the Sith, and their never-ending battle for the galaxy has captured the hearts and imaginations of generations of fans. But did you know that Star Wars also has some valuable lessons for startup jobseekers? 

Whether you're just starting out or looking for your next adventure, here are some lessons from a galaxy far far away that can help you in your search for the perfect startup job. 


  • Find your passion

    In the Star Wars universe, the characters are driven by their passions - whether it's saving the galaxy or mastering the force. Similarly, in the startup world, it's important to find your passion and pursue it relentlessly. Keep a lookout for startups that align with your interests and skills.


  • Embrace Failure: 

    In Star Wars, the characters face failure time and time again, yet they never give up. In the startup world, failure is often a necessary part of the learning process. Don't be afraid to take risks and learn from your mistakes!


  • Network, Network, Network: 

    Without the help of Obi Wan Kenobi, Yoda, and others, Luke Skywalker wouldn't have gotten very far. Similarly, networking is crucial in the startup world. Attend events, connect with employers on LinkedIn, and join startup communities to expand your network!


  • Believe In Yourself: 

    The Jedi in Star Wars are taught to believe in themselves so that they can wield the power of the force. In the startup world, self-belief is key. It's essential that you have confidence in your skills and know that you have what it takes to succeed!


  • Embrace Change:

     In Star Wars, the characters are constantly adapting to changing environments and situations. Change is a constant in the startup world so embrace it and be open to new opportunities!
