30 Ridiculous Struggles Almost Everyone Looking For A Job Has To Face

Published 3 years ago

Everyone who has ever had the “pleasure” of looking for a job know how frustrating the whole process can be – and the employers aren’t making it any easier. Sometimes you rush to three different interviews in different parts of the town on the same day, spending hours in traffic only to get a “We’re sorry…” letter a week later. Or even worse – you simply get ghosted. Tired of companies treating potential employees like garbage, someone started the r/RecruitingHell subreddit where people can air their frustrations, and the posts there are painfully relatable.

From requiring years of experience for entry level positions to making you feel bad about asking about the salary, check out some of the most ridiculous struggles that people looking for a job have to face in the gallery below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
