Uncertainty is scary. And from the outside, it often looks like successful professionals must have had a secret treasure map that they followed, step-by-step, to get to that corner office. The truth is, they didn’t, and you won’t, either. Expecting to know ahead of time exactly where your career is going to go and how you will get there is unreasonable, says Jody Greenstone Miller, an independent consultant and the co-founder and CEO of Business Talent Group , an executive marketplace for project-based work. Prior to launching Business Talent Group, Miller had 11 jobs and spanned seven careers. By the time she was 48, she had worked as a partner at the Seattle-based venture capital firm Maveron and in the White House as Special Assistant to President Bill Clinton. Miller has earned a reputation as a work futurist and as such, she hears from scores of young people looking for advice. They don’t know what they want to do with their lives and are turning to Miller to help them craft that elusive treasure map to the top. “I just think that’s crazy,” Miller said, in an interview with CNBC. One young woman in particular was sent to Miller by her father. He hoped Miller would help his daughter figure out what she wanted to do with her life.

Research a company before going to an interview. Most firms have websites that are full of information. That way, asking smart questions and mentioning specifics about the place will be something you can do. Doing your homework can be the deciding factor in your ability to get the job.
