Getting a new job can be a drag. There’s lots of ups and downs, twists and turns, and lying-on-the-floor-thinking-I-am-a-failure moments. But also some ridiculous and hilarious stuff like weird relocation offers or CEO interviews with unexpected twists.

Anyhow, since the career space is already full of all sorts of “motivational” and “actionable” advice, we decided to mock that out a bit too. Because let’s face it: there’s too much #recruitinghell going on already. Why add up to that?

So guys, let us know what you think of our Career (Con)Quest series. Yay or nay? Can’t relate? We would really love your feedback on our first batch!

Below are some of our favorite comics created in 2019 (more coming up on a weekly basis in 2020!)

Learned a tip from a friend. Most large companies use buzz word filters to narrow down what resumes actual make it to a physical person. In the footer of a word doc, enter in all the buzz words for your industry. Then make it 2pt font and change the text color to white so it won't show up if printed out. The filter will pick up the buzz words but who ever prints it out won't see it.

My sister had to be talked out of telling her interviewers that the job was conveniently located for her. Not what they are interested in hearing...

Well, tell him you were too busy paying too much attention to other small details 🤷

Don't overdo your strengths - this just sounds more like arrogant boasting.

That's some top-notch drawing skills! Reminds me a bit of Doonsbury.
