The job search can be stressful and frustrating. Often, especially if you don’t have much prior job experience, sorting through job descriptions is discouraging. Job listing after job listing asks for years of experience for a job you’re certain you can do or covers up lack of benefits with fun perks. These unrealistic expectations may discourage you from applying, but if you’re sure you’re a fit, don’t be dissuaded. And in the meantime, laugh off the frustrations with this visual by GetVoIP that pokes fun at what job descriptions say versus what they actually mean.
