11 Things No One Tells You About Applying For Jobs

It sucks. The end.

Posted on

1. Your resume will never be perfect

No matter who you ask, there will always be something wrong with your resume. You can spend hours and hours perfecting it, but the "perfect" resume is too objective.

3. Your "dream job" probably isn't exactly what you think it is

The job you thought you wanted only pays how much? Just don't be surprised when you are reading through job descriptions and you find out you don't actually want the job you always thought you did.

4. You'll have to fill out the same information 100 times

Every job application wants the same information. You'll get real tired of filling out all the activities you did in college after the first application. Only 99 more to go!

5. You'll feel underqualified for every job

Sometimes it feels like even the entry-level jobs want 50 years of experience to be qualified to apply. Don't feel intimidated or like you need to have P.hD. If you are applying for an internship, you'll just be getting coffee anyway.
