You do not need to search for a job - it will find you itself.

Is the itself part correct? Should it be replaced with some other word?

    Assuming I understand what you are trying to convey, I think, "You don't need to search for a job- the job will find you." reads better. – Jim Dec 10 '15 at 20:05

"on its own" seems better to me. Leaving off "itself" altogether as suggested in Jim's comment might be more idiomatic however:

"Don't X Y, Y will X you."

is a pretty common pattern.

Or...........To emphasize you could say......all by itself.

You do not need to search for a job - it will find you all by itself.
