Today’s digital job market means that your hunt for entry level work or a summer job will probably involve sending cover letters and resumes via email or applying for work online.

There’s no denying that the internet is an invaluable job search tool, but sometimes it’s important to remember the classic job search tactic: pounding the pavement with a stack of resumes.

Our latest instalment of Job Hunting In GIFs captures the lighter side of the off-line job hunt–and you may find some of these experiences all too familiar.

If you stumble upon a GIF that captures the highs or lows of the job hunt, don’t forget to – your GIF might just be featured in a future installment of Job Hunting In GIFs!
