In addition to experience, how does luck factor into job search success? Do you wear that lucky shirt for a job interview? Do you follow the lucky tradition your mother gave you whenever you go for an interview? Do you believe in ‘luck’ when it comes to your job or an important chapter in your life? Or is it as simple as being in the right place at the right time?

According to the recent study conducted by Monster India, luck plays a crucial role in almost every sphere of our lives and especially in matter related to job search and career progression. Based on this consumer insight, Monster launches its new ad campaign based on two men who while waiting to be interviewed show off their lucky charms. There is a one up-man-ship as each one tries to outdo the other. In the end, the boss walks out with the third selected candidate. The other two men stare at him wondering what he did to get luck on his side. The selected candidate stops to pull out his smart phone which has Monster application for jobseekers, and comments that with Monster, the luck is on his side.

“We have made a conscious effort to blend humor in the television campaign as we operate in a serious category. It is our attempt to bring a smile on the face of the viewers,” added Modi.

Soumitra Karnik, National Creative Director, Dentsu India Group said, “In India, a large number of people believe in luck and lucky charms; especially when it comes to finding the right job. This is the insight we used in our communication. The idea is to reinforce Monster’s strengths as a result of the new initiative launched by the company to connect savvy jobseekers who want 24/7 access to employers anytime and anywhere.”
