Job Search

If you’ve been on the market for a new job recently, you’ll know the struggle really is real!

From countless applications, to waiting a year and day to hear back after a job interview, job hunting can be a pretty discouraging experience. There are moments when you feel like giving up (probably whilst completing job application number 63), but with a bit of perseverance your time will come!

If your job search has left you feeling slightly maddened, remember you’re not alone and we understand! Here are 10 struggles that every job seeker will be able to relate to:

1) Needing experience….to get experience.

2) Waiting to hear back after an interview…

3) Adding a job to your Christmas list.

 4) Unwanted reminders about how badly your job hunt is going.

5) Job applications as long as the Nile.

6) Contradictory employers.

7) It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.

8) Tailoring your applications.

9) Not hearing back from companies

10)  Job rejections.
