Proteus Career Management says:

“A job offer always happens eventually: it is persistence that is the name of the game for the job seeker.”

The lesson? “Be patient.”

Dr Mike Warren says:

Nelson Mandela was very much like Winston Churchill in one particular regard: they both believed strongly in persistence and not giving up even when things seem impossible. It’s a strong message for the job seeker – be persistent.
