15 Painful Experiences From The Job Search Process

Searching for a new job, a first job, or even a second job is never an easy or joyful process. The whole thing is stressful. From updating a resume, hoping it looks fine, to writing the tenth somewhat unnecessary cover letter of the day. There is a lot of hard work that goes into finding a good job. Beyond the whole process, jobs and the employers themselves can make it even worse. Maybe it's a terribly ignorant recruiter or just an environment that screams red flags. Overall, it's one of life's biggest necessary evils.

Even with the amount of places that are "short-staffed" and the bosses complaining that "no one wants to work" that doesn't seem to make a difference in the hiring. If somewhere is so short-staffed, why aren't they replying? To make the process a little easier and as a reminder that everyone goes through it, here are 15 painfully bad moments from Reddit user's experiences while searching for a job from /r/RecruitingH*ll.

How Nice

TODAY • 3rd 5:41 am Thank you for your interest in our position. It's easy to just push an "apply" button and fling your information to as many opportunities as possible. But with that ease comes a less effective outcome, and that's not what we're looking for. What we are interested in is people who actually read the job description and know they are a fit for this role. If you are a match, our post will resonate you and you'll naturally want to take the next steps. If you're just looking to get one more quick glance at your resume, congratulations! You got another glance! We hope you'll be able to land a killer job that way-it just won't work for us.
