The average time spent by recruitment managers for analyzing a resume for a job position is 5 to 7 seconds. Let's say you're one of the lucky ones who caught their attention. What's next? Sweaty hands, racing heart, restless legs... In short, a job interview. Sure, you could've done your homework beforehand to save you some sweat, but hey, looking for a job is the best place for some improv, right? Sadly, no.

Whether you're crapping your pants while waiting to be evaluated or recovering from another epic fail, it's probably best to stop obsessing about it. And what better way to accept your job search shortcomings than realizing there are many more who are going through the exact same thing? Bored Panda has compiled a list of hilariously funny memes that perfectly sum up every job interview ever, and it's just what you need to ease the pain. Lame jokes, spacing out, you name it, we've got it all. So relax, continue scrolling, and enjoy the best memes!

Aha, you say after checking out our refined selection of memes, I'm chill and collected, now what? Well, there are things you can do straight away that can elevate you above other applicants. First of all, research the industry and company you're trying to get into. According to Experis, an organization that specializes in employment services, an interviewer is likely to ask how you perceive their company's position in its industry, who the firm's competitors are, what its competitive advantages are, and how it should best go forward.

Next off, clarify your selling points and the reasons you want the job. "Prepare to go into every interview with three to five key selling points in mind such as what makes you the best candidate for the position," Experis wrote. "Have an example of each selling point prepared ('I have good communication skills. For example, I persuaded an entire group to ...'). And be prepared to tell the interviewer why you want that job – including what interests you about it, what rewards it offers that you find valuable, and what abilities it requires that you possess." This way, you present yourself as someone who is really, really interested in the job and worthy of an offer despite lacking something others might have.

Also, try to come up with a few questions for the interviewer that demonstrate your knowledge of the company as well as your motivation. Interviewers always give a chance to ask them if there's anything you'd like to know and no matter what, you should make use of this opportunity. Responding with, "No, not really," may give out the impression that you're not that interested in the job or the company. If you're stuck, however, and can't come up with something specific, consider using the classic, "If you could design the ideal candidate for this position from the ground up, what would he or she be like?"

DK Global Recruitment said that the average length of an interview is about 40 minutes but 33% of 2000 surveyed recruiters claimed that they know within the very first 90 seconds of the interview if they will recruit the candidate. In the same survey, managers mentioned the following mistakes as some of the major reasons why they might reject someone:

  • 70% indicated applicants were too trendy while attending an interview.
  • 67% mentioned that the candidates were unable to make eye contact.
  • 55% because of the way the jobseeker walked through the door.
  • 47% of the times candidates didn’t have any information about the company they are applying for.

What they are looking for is someone who is an expert at a what they do, but too inexperienced to question what their bosses are doing.
