It's that necessary evil that we all have to put up with. Some of us are lucky enough to be working in a position or industry we find happiness in. I envy those people. Others, like myself, are in a field we've realized isn't for us. Back when I was job hunting there were hundreds of thoughts running through my head. I figured it was polite of me to share them with you.
So many jobs!!!!
Wait, am I qualified for this?
Why do I have to upload my resume AND still fill out all my info... So repetitive.
This sounds good...
$13/hr? How about no.
Omg this job is prefect! Just hire me now.
Oh wait, it's in Boston.
Maybe I should move...
Ok let's be real.
Should I bother working with recruiters?
They can be so irritating. Ehh, at least it's another set eyes looking.
Ok, I've applied to 6 positions.
God I hate my resume....
Maybe I should tweak it again?
Why can't I just work on an island selling coconut drinks?
Because it's not real life.
But it IS real life. People do it!!
Goddamn these student loans.
I need a minimum salary of X.
Omg this job was made for me! It sounds perfect!
Wait, didn't I apply to this already?
Ok maybe I should just go to bed.
And that ends my 3 hour job application binge. The struggle of job hunting is real. It's like having a non-non-paying part time job. And interviewing....forget it!
Let's hope the coconut gig pans out guys. First round is on me!
