    Regarding luck, postdocs often call me for an “informational interview” asking me how I got my industry job. I always tell them I was incredibly lucky and in the right place at the right time. When you have hundreds of applicants for a scientist position, you basically have to have the perfect background and CV, because if you don’t, someone else does. There are many exceptionally talented unlucky postdocs out there in need of a rabbit’s foot.
