Job Hunting In GIFs: Advice You Hear (Too Often)


1378633_97685338

If you’re on the hunt for an entry level job, you may occasionally find yourself a little bit down in the dumps. It can be hard to keep your head held high when you feel like you’ve applied to every job in sight without much luck.

When you’re having a tough time of things, friends and family are usually quick to offer you sincere, well-meaning advice, which can be a great asset–until you’ve heard the same phrase one time too many.

This installment of Job Hunting In GIFs takes a brief look at advice you’ve probably heard before–and how it starts to feel very different from what it’s meant to convey.

As always, if you find a GIF that reminds you of the job hunt, be sure to – it might just be featured in an upcoming edition of Job Hunting In GIFs!
