I know I’m most likely preaching to the choir here, but I’m gonna say it anyway…
Looking for a job SUUUUUUUUUCKS.
It’s a total nightmare, it destroys your soul, it makes you feel horrible about yourself, and you’re likely to get rejected over and over again, which isn’t good for your self-confidence.
But you gotta keep doing it if you’re out of work because we all gotta pay the bills, brothers and sisters.
Still, it can be a major drag…but we want you to have a laugh and jobs and job searching.
1. This is out of control.
You’re gonna need top-secret clearance for this job.
One time I Applied to work as a busboy at Cheesecake Factory they made me take a personality test and 2 IQ type tests and then said I wasn’t what the Cheesecake Factory was looking for. It’s not the CIA man it’s where parents take their kids to tell them they’re getting divorced

2. Yeah, imagine that.
I don’t know why companies haven’t figured this out yet…
Workers: Are you going to replace them, that position is important.
Company: lol no.
Workers: is anyone gonna get a raise for picking up their work?
Company: lol no.
*more workers quit*
Company: Damn everyone’s leaving that’s nuts.

3. Enough with these kinds of posts!
Just keep hustlin’!
I fucking hate LinkedIn with a passion.
One more speech about how you just have to keep hustling and taking shit and working 80 hour weeks from a dude who got into Yale as a legacy and became a startup CEO of a shitty app company with no privacy security might make me vomit.

4. She answered the question honestly.
And no, she didn’t stutter.

Me: naked on a beach
Interviewer: I mean professionally
Me: did I stutter

5. That’s pretty close.
They really care about you!
HR: What sort of perks would make your life better here?
Me: A higher salary, flexible hours, and more vacation days.
HR: lmao here's some ramen cups and permission to wear jeans on Friday.
