  • *Gets let go cause of corona* *Applies for jobs* Jobs: no but thx *Applies for minimum wage jobs* Jobs: thx but overqualified *signs up for benefits and lives life as a hobo on reddit*

  • “The silent, internalized fury of one thousand suns” 😂😂 gotta love CC

  • Bad news it's only gonna get worse.. the machines are coming.. We need universal income

  • this channel helps me more than 17 years of school

  • Advice: - Look eager during the interview - Always list your best qualities to help the team BUT keep it short - Know the limit between Desperate and Vain and last but not least - Smile like you mean it

  • When I just graduated almost every entry level job required 2-3 years of experience in that "specific" field, and internships required to be at least one year before graduation 🙃 so no job and no way to get more experience

  • Be less unrealistic you need to be 21 atleest with 30 years of experience

  • Lmao, so true. I was told that I will need to pass 6 month unpaid internship. SIX MONTHS. I had a degree, qualifications and I was told to volunteer for half a year. They wouldn't even pay me minimum age.

  • Unironically just go for a trade.

  • Used to think this video was a joke. It’s not.

  • Learn a trade as soon as possible in your life

  • My answer, Goodwill. They hire literally almost anybody.

  • its gut wrenching how realistic this is

  • Why dont I strap on my job helmet? And squeeze into a job cannon? And fire off into Jobland where jobs grow on jobbies?

  • Maybe the government has something to do with this outcome. Nah.

  • 10,000 a year? fake. what is this communist russia?

  • “Just walk in and ask for an application and introduce yourself. Don’t come home till you’ve got a job”

  • "That makes sense"

  • This is so ridiculously true. I recall at age 16 was the first time I was permitted to legally work, so enthusiastically I went to apply with local stores and business for a job over the summer. I'd get stuff like "So do you have any previous experience?" (Despite me having made it clear I'm 16 and it was the first time I could work). Or a "Just hand us your CV and we'll get back with you" (Which naturally they never did). Tried again the year after, got the same shit of "you need experience first" because working as a cashier or handling products or cleaning in a store apparently needs soooo much experience. Kept getting the same pointless answers, so eventually I just gave up and never worked a job as a student.

  • It really do be like that tho

  • Inside info from a former employer: we don't nescessarily want you, even tho you qualify for the job. Often there are many applicants, and we(the employer) has most times already set their mind on a set of qualities or skills that would be nice to have around. You might be better qualified, or even "too good " as some describe it. Yet the person who most fit the description we predetermined have a much higher chance of getting the job. Thats life. Sometimes, we all look at the wrong places to discover what we're really worth. ie: if you didnt get the mcdonalds job, that is just as much the employer saving you from a shitty life, as it is you failing to get a job, apply yourself, and try somewhere else. Never the less, you are always appreciated, no matter call-backs, or sad messages

    • I have gotten really lucky personally. I got hired for 3 jobs during quarantine and I work 2 full time but quit the 3rd. I am hoping working full time while being a full time student and managing all As will help me when I apply for an internship that will hopefully lead into my career field, but you never know

  • you need rich parents

  • Ok I get it now

  • The American job market is a scam.

  • It's even worse during the Covid Era

  • Getting a job feels like getting into a secret society. I went to college, to be a paralegal. I had no paralegal experience, I even offered to work for some law firms for free, and I would have done it to, just to get my foot in the door. Of course, I was still turned down. I guess, too many people, not enough jobs?

  • 1:48 This whole place is a giant catch-22

  • The last thing I would do is going to university.

  • I'd laugh, but this hurts too much.

  • 1:50 omg bro you guys need to go to 1:50 and then turn on close captions lmao

  • *Graduates at a famous university with degree* "welcome to mcdonald's can I take your order?'

  • Life fuckin sucks, went to college, 30k in debt for a degree i can't use, suck in a shitty ass call center job and my only saving grace is the pandemic because thanks to it I don't have to pay my loans yet 💀

  • 10k is actually really good. I would kill for 10k

  • Casually Explained becomes class conscious

  • So accurate

  • Did this work during COVID

  • Ah yes get a useless degree and get a job to pay off that useless degree

    • Computer science degree isn't useless, and likely never will be

  • How to explain why living in America as a typical citizen is a poor life choice in 2 minutes.

  • You have to finish the game in "nightmare mode" to unlock "pandemic mode"

  • Make People think youre ysac lmfaooooooo 0:34

  • Thats america not in europe

  • The university I study in wants me to get a job before I get my degree : ^)

  • i'll rather washing cars

  • Well that’s the fucking world we live in so deal with it!

    • @Mr. Hat 1. If you’re a student, work hard enough and step up for yourself to make proof of your good work so your future life can be easier. If you’re not a student and you’re struggling to find a job, just keep having faith and keep on applying for the jobs you don’t mind doing too much without being to difficult on your choices and then change jobs after at least 5 to 6 months when it becomes too annoying, always by trying to get an a bit more prestigious job each time. Not all employers reject you even if you’ve never worked before like it says in this stupid video, especially if you spend time making a good CV. Spoiler alert: you don’t need to have a lot of experience to make a good CV. 2. Do you really believe in that? Do you think it’s going to happen in your life time? If you know so well then you can be the one to start actually improving the way society works. You probably won’t be the first to try, yet you might be the first to succeed in some way 🤷‍♂️. I mean you never know, if you WORK HARD ENOUGH on it. 3. In some way, I do agree a tiny bit with the video because life may seem like that if you look at it that way. But it’s not a very original to say: « oh life is stupid; I can’t get a job because I don’t have any working experience. How are you supposed to get your first job then? », many idiots have had that thought at least once, me included, but they’re just looking at the world the way they want to see it according to their state of mind at that moment. Often, universities help you get your first job because it’s part of their program. But if you haven’t gone to university, firstly it’s probably because you haven’t WORKED ENOUGH, secondly well you can always either go to university know, or follow universities’ programs online (on some websites like Coursera, where you only have to pay like 200 bucks for the diploma when you pass the exam at the end of the year), or you can always start your own project that you find out how to build online if you don’t know already. Everyone knows that you can learn basically anything for free online, the only obstacle being your motivation. At this point you might say to me: « Well not everyone can afford universities! » and I’ll tell you that I’ve given you other solutions in my previous sentence, but also, I’ll tell you that everyone has problems in life I hope realized thzt already, some just have less than others but there is always a way to solve them if you have the courage to face it. You might also tell me: « But I don’t like WORKING HARD, it’s exhausting! » and I’ll reply by saying: « Well no shit Sherlock! Of course it’s exhausting but that’s how you succeed in life, and, anyway, if you manage to WORK HARD ENOUGH, you may get to a point where your work will be what you always wanted or needed and it won’t be too bothering anymore to WORK HARD. » So NO, to answer your last question, I wasn’t being that much sarcastic. Understood now?

    • 1. How? 2. It can be improved 3. Are you being sarcastic?

  • The sweet feeling of having free edjucation in your country 😂

  • 'Murica! Fuck yeah!

  • Mines like $45,000 a year... 🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃

  • not quite realistic. they would say - we not employ directly and we dont know who you need to talk about it.

  • the most unrealistic part of his was that he was actually able to get an interview

  • This video motivated me to get a job. It's very handy. Probably the handiest job ever. Thank you.

  • okay, now that makes sense

  • In most of Europe University is virtually free

  • Accurately summarizes what I think most millennials around 30-35 went through since we graduated around the Great Recession.

  • hmm i see a problem there

  • I remember when Java Script was literally just developed and computer companies wanted at least 5-10 years experience using the language for an associate level position.

  • smh uni for a year is like 20k

    • @Teamgeist differences?

    • @Teamgeist hol up WHAT

    • It's free in most of Europe.

  • This is why I'm unemployed

  • The internet

  • Our system...

  • "Hello, I want to work here" "No, you do not have experience" "But, you said this is an entry level job" "Yes, but with experience" "Okay, I'll get some here" "No, you need experience" ("-_-)

    • Go kill some mobs, what's the deal?

  • Just watching this pisses me off

  • "We need you to have a masters degree in computer science and have 95 000 hours of experience and we will pay you 2 bucks a week"

  • This is all too real.

  • there's something called ScHoLeR ShIpS

  • *Depression*

  • I'm starting to get nervous about finding a job just looking at the comments...

    • It's the rat race and if you read some of these comments, people will ensure the competition is unfair, egotistical, and fierce.

    • At first it's scary, like a watchdog on your way, but everything is under control, the dog is not aggressive and he might be your friend

  • (roasted)

  • SADGE

  • What country do you live in? From 1 month to 6 months.

  • at the end you shouldve got the guy to break her head all bloody.

  • this is what happens in socialism. we need to capitalism to have more entrepreneurs. more jobs!

  • Not realistic, you got aa far as an interview

  • You need an education for a job, you need a job for money, and you need money for an education. Seems fair.

  • This is why college needs to be free

  • Still no movement let's try this again...

  • laughs in European

  • 1:49 english subtitles: [the silent, internalized fury of one thousand suns]

  • How about the part where you finally get your degree, but since you had minimal experience, companies won't hire you and the smaller jobs say you're overqualified Edit: I've applied to over 60 jobs the past 2 months and only 4 of them replied back at all, butter my ass and call me shirley...

  • Ok that makes since lol 😂

  • Watching this with subtitles on is even better.

  • 10k per year? *laughs in european*

  • must be going to a community college if the tuition only 10k

  • This hit too close to home. I live at my job and do school during break

  • McTrump

    • Make burgers great again

  • The subtitles on this are the best: the silent, internalized fury of one thousand suns...

  • ways to break the cycle; volunteer experience

  • I always wonder who is this 'Other candidate' they keep talking about.

  • This is because socialist policies, if the min wage exists instatly will create this situation, why you will pay 1000 bucks month to a person who dont will able to make this in return?

  • Hi Everyone, I like to share my experience with you guys when I left college, I got a Job which was barely enough to pay my bills with nothing left. I practically lived from paycheck to paycheck without any savings. In a short while I left the Job in search of a better Job which took like forever. Where ever I went, They all say the same thing; ''that they're not hiring at the moment but however my application will be considered whenever they start hiring". This went on for almost a year, I got kicked out of my house, I slept in the streets for a while before I met an old friend who took me in, I was so ashamed of myself that I couldn't face my family. After some days in her house, I decided to try again. Everything remains the same, I couldn't get a Job. I was fed-up and told my friend everything that I was going through. She smiled and told me a story about a Spell caster/ Cure expert named Olalekan who helped her secure her current Job, that I shouldn't worry he is going to help me. She brought out her phone and gave me his email; olalekanspell@gmail.com and What'sapp number +2349050071327. I contacted him immediately and in just 7days I got a Job 5 times what I earned from my previous Job. I now have an SUV and my own apartment all thanks to Dr. Olalekan.

  • That's exactly what's happening to me right now - like each skit is exactly what happened to me. Now I'm on the last one considering going back to school.

  • now that you know all the truth, you could go forward with you life, and complain about it

  • 1:48 is the perfect use of empty space. Also a great reaction image

  • Getting a job is like dating, just because you got rejected by a few doesn't mean it's impossible. "Ooo I applied to 8 jobs and they rejected me." Stop being a loser.

  • Creating a job in 2020 is difficult - That's it.

  • I mean, if you lie and they find out, what'll they do? Throw you in jail? They'll just say "no" and forget the whole thing

  • This is so accurate. I recently finished my MSc in Finance and I am currently applying for entry level jobs, but every single time I get the “not enough experience” bullshit. How am I supposed to build that experience if no one is offering the opportunity to me?

    • meh its the world reality, ppl get born faster than ppl dying + automation, so just less and less jobs

  • "What do you think you could bring to this company?" "Dave this is a minimal wage unskilled position stop asking me questions like you're running an investment firm. I have bills that need paying and you are offering a job that pays." -how all those interviews should go

    • not at all. just some. in some you get to develop a career you actually like. but in most, youre a robot that just moves and crank to keep the assembly line going. you may actually be interested in becoming a teacher or a broker. but its hilarious when they ask you about that for applying for like cashier. even if you just wanted to make your job easier, its not like they'd let you make any changes to the proccess, nor will they pay you for it or promote you.

    • how it actually goes: i believe my involvement in this company could increase morale among the team and allow the corporation to grow as the team grows. I do believe that if i were to join then your team would surely accept me as one of your own and i can easily learn the essentials from there. do you have experience? no get out

  • so fucking true i been trying to get a job and it feels impossible. and now covid is among us i think im better of trying to start a EEclone channel or something

  • Tldr: you dont

  • 10k a year for school. That's cute.
