Your time spent on stalking individuals and companies on LinkedIn has not been in vain!

2. They add, "Oh yeah, and it's on Skype."

No biggie, you think. All those hours skyping with your high school friends during your first year at college are 'bout to pay off.

3. You study, you rehearse, you pick your outfit...

Most importantly, you make your friend Skype with you to make sure your more "professional" user handle works.

4. Interview Day: positioning your laptop just so and debating whether or not to put on professional work pants.

You go with the work pants, better safe than sorry amiright?

5. The interviewer calls you.

It's ok, BE COOL.

6. EXCEPT. You're not showing up on their screen! Instant panic mode.

The little green light is on, but nothing is showing. It was working 10 minutes ago. WHAT.

7. "I'm not sure what the problem is, my light is on," you say.

THEY DON'T CARE. The show must go on, they say, obviously disappointed.

8. You continue on with the interview, trying your best to sound totally confident in your answers.

But you're still desperately trying to troubleshoot the camera issue without making a sound on your keyboard.

9. "Oh wait!" they exclaim. "Can you see me?!" you ask.

"No, an ad just popped up. That's too bad though." UGH.

10. You realize that maybe this was all a trick so they can see how well you deal under pressure.

Hey, it could happen! And you kept your cool like a BOSS.

11. You kept cool..RIGHT?

Via giphy.com

Doubtful, but hey it'll be over in another 10 minutes.

12. You end the call, grateful that horrid half hour is over with.

Via giphy.com

THANK JESUS.

13. You call your BFF and declare, "SKYPE IS THE ENEMY."

Via giphy.com

If technology was a person..

14. Your friends has news: "I got the job!"

Via giphy.com

I can't. NO.

15. But you suck it up and congratulate them.

Via giphy.com

They've been working hard on this just like you, they've earned it. Plus, they just patiently waited out your rant about Skype, the economy, and student loans.

16. Your time will come, but in the meantime drinks to celebrate your friend's job offer?
