Getting A Job Is Really Hard

The struggle is real, so so real.

Posted on

I recently quit my job in retail management.

I worked for Abercrombie & Fitch, which is an awful company run by evil she-devils and he-demons.

I wanted to pursue my dreams instead of hating my life.

My main dream is to write sassy articles like this...and actually get paid for it.

I embarked on the job search once again, and I was instantly reminded of how much it sucks.

If anyone tells you that getting a job is easy, punch them in the face for me.

Do people realize how much work goes into just finding jobs to apply to?

I spend part of my day searching for jobs, and the rest of the day crying.

Then you have to work on your resume, and tweak it for every single job you apply to.

And writing cover letters is THE WORST THING EVER.

Here's my cover letter:

Dear Important Person,

My interest in this job should be clear since I'm applying for this job.

I'm qualified because of all the shit on my resume.

Please hire me.

Love,

Sarah

PS. Did you even read this?

Then they want you to fill out an application, where you basically rewrite everything you put in your resume and cover letter.

It's literally like they're testing you to see how much time and patience you have.

Sometimes you even have to take a personality test or some similar survey.

If you're a bad person, you're going to need to lie your way through this.

None of it matters though, because you won't get the job. You don't have enough experience.

Why am I constantly reading descriptions for "entry level" jobs that require "3-5 years" of experience? HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE?By the way, I wasn't in a sorority, so don't even assume.

And there's a small chance that you'll get an interview, but you still won't get the job.

No one cares about your diploma, or mine.

Overall, getting a job is really hard.

You'll probably end up getting a job that you don't really want, and I'll end up living with my parents forever.
