Hey, there, friends…
You’ve been there. I’ve been there. We’ve all been there.
I’m talking about looking for a new job.
It can be frustrating, demoralizing, and it can make a person depressed because of how much you tend to get the run-around from companies.
And we’re gathered here today to commiserate about how much looking for a job really sucks!
So push aside your cover letter and your resume for a few minutes and have some laughs at these funny tweets. Enjoy!
1. Life happens, folks.
A lot of people need breaks sometimes.
Dear hiring managers,
Please stop assuming all employment gaps on resumes are bad. Life happens. Battling cancer. Raising children. Taking care of a dying parent. Stop relying on algorithms to tell you who people are, what they have been through, and all they are capable of.

2. It’s really not at all.
We need to end this whole way of thinking.
"It's rude to discuss your salary."
No, it isn't. That's something companies made up so they could pay some of you less than others with no one getting mad. Discuss your salaries. Find the discrepancies. Demand more. The workers are on the same team.

3. Let’s see YOUR references.
I like this idea…
Employers asking for references is so stupid and pointless like…why don’t YOU give me 3 references! Go ahead! Let me call 3 former employees and see if y’all treated them well or like shit, then we’ll talk!

4. This right here is all you need to see.
It’s so ridiculous!
I saw a job post the other day. ?
It required 4+ years of experience in FastAPI. ?
I couldn't apply as I only have 1.5+ years of experience since I created that thing. ?
Maybe it's time to re-evaluate that "years of experience = skill level". ♻

5. I’m here to stay, so you better deal with it!
Let’s negotiate my salary, shall we?
If you don’t get hired for an unpaid internship it literally makes no difference. Just show up and start working. What are they gonna do, pay you?

6. What’s the point of this?
Do you really want to see me beg?
LinkedIn has stories lol what am I supposed to do there, beg for job?

7. They’re gonna break down really fast.
Take that, Boomers!
Can we make a reality show where we make baby boomers try applying to jobs for the first time in 30 years using their own advice, and see how quickly they have a mental breakdown?

8. I’m here to work!
Whether you like it or not…
Tomorrow Just wake up, wear your formal clothes, go to any company and start working.
If they call the police, go to the police station and start working there too.
We’re tired of sending CVs✋?

9. Even the animal kingdom is having a hard time…
No one can catch a break.
Looking for a caterpillar. Must have 5 years experience as a butterfly and at least a master's degree. This will be an unpaid position.

10. I feel this one.
Let’s all do it together!
Hey guys, just a thought; but how about instead of canceling celebrities for comments they made years ago, we start boycotting companies that want bachelors degrees and 3-5 years of experience for $13 an hour entry level jobs?

11. Amen, my brother!
Quit wasting my time!
Put the salary in the job description.
No one should have to take time off work to find out the job they are interviewing for pays significantly less than the one they already have.

How’s the job hunt been treating you lately? Pretty good? Not so much? Any luck?
