The 20 Stages Of Applying For A Job, As Told By Chandler Bing

Could this BE any more difficult?

The 20 Stages Of Applying For A Job, As Told By Chandler Bing

Applying for any job or internship is very stressful. From researching jobs and companies, trying to find connections, trying to bolster up your confidence, and waiting by the phone like a girl after your first date. If anyone can understand that kind of pain and desperation, it's Chandler from "Friends."

Here are the 20 stages of applying for a job.

1. Looking for the right jobs.

2. Realizing that anything that pays is "the right job."

3. Rewriting your resume a million times to fit each and every requirement.

4. Spending ten hours writing one cover letter, while knowing that they'll probably spend ten seconds reading it.

5. Researching the company, its employees, and their work and feeling like a complete stalker.

7. Being so nervous your fingers shake as you try to hit "send" on your application.

8. Not hearing back within a week.

9. Not hearing back within a month.

10. Emailing all of your connections and all your friends to see if they have any connections.

11. Wanting to vomit if you hear the word "networking" one more time.

12. Applying to as many jobs as you can get your hands on and still not hearing back from anyone.

13. Finally hearing back, but then realizing it's only a rejection letter.

14. Total hopelessness.

15. Finally, finally getting an interview at the last moment.

16. Preparing your ass off.

18. But nailing it!

19. Getting the job offer.

20. You knew you had it in the bag.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
