7 Moments That Job Seekers Know All Too Well

Let’s be honest — as rewarding as the end result is, looking
for a new job can be exhausting. Between looking for the right
opportunities, creating customized resumes and going on interviews,
you put a lot of time, energy and emotion into the process. But
even if you’re feeling frustrated, it’s important to know that
you’re not in it alone — below are seven moments that nearly
all job seekers can relate to.

(Pro tip: want to fast forward to happily ever after? Consider
working with a staffing services firm like
Kforce
, who will proactively find the perfect match for
you!)

1. You spend all day at work…

when you get back.

2. You think you found a job that would be perfect for
you…

…until you see they want you to have an MBA, JD and PhD.

3. Finally, you come across a few good options. So you start
working on your resume — and after a few days, it’s
perfect.

But then, you realize you still have to customize it for every
job you apply to… and also write cover letters.

4. Once all of your materials have been ~perfected~, you start
filling out the application — you’re feeling good!

Even when you have to enter all the same information you have on
your resume.

5. You finish sending out applications — now, it’s time to
wait.

And wait.

6. Finally, you get the call you’ve been waiting for — they
want you to come in for an interview!

You prepare all week, and you’re starting to feel
unstoppable.

But in the end, they choose to go with someone who is “a
better fit.”

7. So you go through it all over again.

But you don’t give up, even when you get discouraged.

And in the end, you find a great new job — which makes it all
worth it.

It’s easy to get discouraged during a long, difficult job
search, but remember: No matter how frustrating it gets, the right job
is out there for you!
