Job hunting is legitimately the most tedious task a person can ever do. Sending out hundreds of resumes only to receive an email relying that “We’re working on it. Will contact you soon,” or simply no reply at all. It’s no exaggeration to say that it’s like throwing a rock into the ocean. Your resume will just sink into the abyss as if it has never existed. No wonder why it doesn’t take long for job seekers to lose their patience and hope in the recruitment process.
Are you currently looking for a job? We all will have to go through this moment at least a few times in life. And fairly to say, no matter whether it’s the first time or the 10th time you do it, the frustration is the same. The recruiter, the job’s requirement, and even the job itself can be delusional and demoralizing. Red flags, just a whole lot of red flags. No one wants to work if they can. And we bet you know the reason.
