There’s a supreme difference between “pursuing a career” and “looking for a job.”
Though they kind of mean the same thing, the former usually implies that you’re chasing your passions – trying to grab at something that’s going to bring you fulfillment and fun, and maybe change the world around you for the better.
The latter implies that you just need a way to make your landlord shut up.
Luckily, there’s memes to soothe the pain.
12. My inner child
But I know how to use crayons, so that’s something.
11. Down on yourself
Well then good luck.
10. Full transparency
Honesty isn’t ALWAYS the best policy.
9. The waiting is the hardest part
You know how to sweet talk your way into a position, huh?
8. Staying healthy
Maybe they won’t notice this time?
7. Under pressure
*dun dun dun du-du-du-dun*
6. Basic needs
I got bills. You got bills. We all got bills.
Stop asking people why they want to work at your company! They need a job and you’re hiring! Let’s move tf on!! Nobody cares about the company “values” that y’all don’t even follow!

5. Gentle reminder
I’m not even sure how I’ve made it this far in life.
Applying for jobs is a great way to remind yourself that when you sit down and think about it, you actually have no quantifiable skills 🙂

4. My cup overflows
What blessings I have.
During my interview today i poured some water into a cup and it overflowed a little bit
“Nervous?” asked the interviewer
I simply replied, “No I just always give 110%”

3. You shall not pass
I have an account here? I have literally never been on this website in my life.
Love applying for jobs because my true passion is resetting passwords.

2. Set apart
Let’s just be real about it.
Them: “And what would you say sets your apart from other people applying for this job?”
Me: “Hmm probably that they’re all more qualified and deserving of it than I am?”

1. Brevity is the soul of wit
And sadness, probably.
If you could describe yourself in one word, what would it be?
