Whether you have recently graduated ... have not recently graduated, were in the market for a new job, or just seem to have picked a career where it is extremely hard to find a job (writing), you've probably come to realize that job hunting sucks. The whole process. Sucks.
The search always seems to go the same way, with the same result. Frustration.
You may sit online for hours, searching career boards and job postings. If you're like me, you even get emails sent to your inbox from Indeed.com at 5 a.m!!!
Sometimes, you keep scrolling, but sometimes, you bite the bullet and apply.
You hit send and hope for the best. But after a day or two, you get less and less hopeful.
Much of the time, no one answers. But sometimes, they do! And it seems if one does, they all do. It happens all at once, and at the same time.
They want to set up a phone interview. Because no one wants to bother to meet you .. in person anymore.
Then, one of two things happen. One, the person falls off the face of the earth. Two, they want to bring you in to meet in person!
You get up in the morning pumped. Your resume is printed, you have questions to ask, examples to show, and you're ready to do whatever it takes to get to this interview.
You answer and say the same things you did in the first interview.
And (hopefully) walk out feeling confident. There is no way in the world you didn't just get this job.
The next day (or rest of the week) you sit and anticipate the call / email.
And maybe, they called and offered you your dream job (or any job, for that matter) but since you're reading this post, they probably didn't.
And you're back to square one.
But don't give up, friends. If it didn't happen, it wasn't for you. Our time is coming!
May the job market ever be in your favor.
