So…Did I Get the Job?

Everybody who’s gone through the process of trying to get hired knows just how challenging and frustrating the search, resumés, cover letters, and interviews can truly be.

The seemingly endless undertaking forces you to criticize your own worth, doubt your own capabilities, and scrutinize if you’ll be a good fit in any field, and it certainly doesn’t help that friends and family are constantly questioning if you’ve gotten a job yet or not.

Still, not everyone takes the application process as seriously as they probably should. Just keep reading to check out some of the most hilarious resumés we could find. They might not (and probably won’t) get the job, but at least they’re having fun along the way. Even recruiters and HR couldn’t help but crack up at some of these!
