The 21 Stages Of Getting A Summer Job

It’s not that you’re unemployable…it just seems that way.

1. You start searching the internet for jobs…

What? There’s jobs on tumblr…and craigslist.

2. You try to find good jobs that pay more than minimum wage and have little or no experience required…

There aren’t any.

3. When you finally find a decent-looking job…you have to apply.

4. And you have to create a resume…

5. Which means fabricating work experience…

So is that one leadership camp…right?

6. And finding skills…

7. Because you definitely have many talents…

8. You may even have to write a cover-letter…

Dear COMPANY,
I do not have any real work experience but I went to a leadership conference in the 10th grade and I have a 4.0 so I’m pretty sure I can take tickets or orders or whatever it is you do.
You should hire me.

9. Meanwhile…all your friends are getting jobs.

10. And your parents keep asking what’s taking so long…

11. Finally, you get one interview…

12. It’s probably on the phone…

When’s the last time you had an intelligent conversation on the phone?
2006?

13. If you manage to make it through the interview without totally embarrassing yourself…they’ll call you.

14. You’ll wait by the phone for days…

15. Then you get tried of waiting…

16. You call them up and confront them…

Or you at least wish you could…

17. Then…they may offer you the job!

18. Or make you come in for another interview…

19. For a job you might not even get…or want.

20. Just remember that there are plenty of other jobs you are overqualified for that also won’t hire you.
