Most definitely, you see it all the time, someone gets a job because they know somebody in the company. That sir is that factor I sum up to luck. You may be qualified and what not but you were unlucky that they had someone who applied for the job who is connected.

I guess you could say that in the end it is just a statistical outcome where you define the result as better than average.

I personally believe that Luck is a skill. If you try hard enough you will be lucky!
That comes down to the whole power of attraction thing. Can't really call luck a skill though since that alone is an oxymoron. I think it all comes down to being at the right place at the right time, that doesn't require skill.
