Hello-hello, everyone! We are back at it with another fresh lineup of Career (Con)Quest comics—an ongoing series showing the weird and sometimes even weirder realities of the job search.

If you’ve just landed here, it’s our third post (you can check Part 1 and Part 2 with 23 more comics total!) featuring the adventures of Sam—a talented, but slightly socially awkward electrical engineer doing his rounds of job applications and interview duties. And his HR girlfriend Hanna, popping in occasionally to give him some good tips.

Sam has already had kind of a whirlwind of a journey—weird interviews with a commercial space company or too-hip-to-be-true startups, a relocation job offer to the North Pole, along with a bunch of blown-up interviews and honest attempts to create the perfect resume (which is totally a myth).

Now, he’s no lion-tamer-sky-diver, but still, his fun adventures are nearing their end...

We are sharing the last bunch of comics here, and you are very much welcome to discover how the story ends at our website. We’ll be publishing the last 5 episodes there!

Spoiler alert: Our ending is way better than Game of Thrones, but it still comes with a pretty unexpected twist!

Manholes are round because with any other shape, you could drop the cover down if you turned it the wrong way. Impossible with a circle.

That “entry level” job requiring 5 years experience thing just makes my blood boil. I’m trying to change careers, and may have related experience but not direct. Entry level is where you get that experience, HR! 👏That’s 👏 Why 👏 It’s 👏 Called🤞ENTRY🤞 Level !!!

Actually, multitasking is a myth. Unless everything’s automated, you can only 100% concentrate on one thing at a time. If you try to do more than one thing requiring your attention, you’re merely dividing your attention—-something those who insist you multitask do not seem to understand. For example, if you’re trying to write an email and talk on the phone, you’re not giving each 100% (there is NO 200%). You can only realistically give each 50% of your attention. The more tasks you add, the smaller the fractions get. However, if you wrote some of the email, then put it aside to answer the phone, finish the call, and go back to the email, then that’s 100% attention to each, but it isn’t multitasking. So those who tell you they can multitask several things at the same time and give them all 100% are either bad at math or lying.

Thing is, most of them will try to pin you down first by insisting you put a number in the blank. Not very fair, because it doesn’t give you any negotiation room—-and if you put a slightly higher number down just to give you a little wiggle room, they won’t even consider you because they think you’re too expensive. Catch-22.
