I know I’m probably preaching to the choir, but looking for a job is THE WORST.
Endless cover letters, constantly retweaking your resume, and for what?
All so you apply to dozens (sometimes hundreds) of jobs online that you’ll most likely never hear from.
And the worst part is that the expectations and requirements are usually completely ridiculous and unrealistic.
“So I understand you’re applying for an entry-level position? You’ll need 26 references, 12 years of experience, 4 certifications, and you must be fluent in Swahili.”
Okay…I guess I’ll be moving in.
If you’ve applied to any jobs in the past several years, these posts are gonna bring back some memories…
1. Sounds totally reasonable…
Ugh…sorry to hear this one.
2. I’m sure people feel great about that.
Get outta here with that!
3. Please be attractive!
I don’t know if that’s legal…
4. Entry level…
Oh, this one again…
5. You have your own lab, right?
Totally makes sense.
6. This is good.
7. Out of control.
They’re serious, unfortunately.

8. Trust issues.
You’re not alone.
9. You don’t have a clue, do you?
It sure doesn’t seem like it.

10. You need to be a doctor!
Hmmmm…sounds like BS to me.
11. Recent graduates with a ton of experience.
Yeah, that makes sense.
12. Definitely not enough.
And you know it’s true!
