Let’s face it, no one just spends all day every day searching for jobs.
1. Stalked everyone from your school to see what they’re doing now.
2. And hoped that what they’re doing makes you feel better about your own life.
3. Complained to your uni friends about having nothing to do, but told them you were too busy to meet up.
4. Accepted a pity invite from your parents.
Before you know it you’re doing yoga with your mum and all the other over 50s in the local community hall.
5. Googled how to write a CV.
6. Dug out your personal statement for cover letter inspiration.
It got you into uni, did it not?
7. Spent hours on Wikipedia researching which celebrities have degrees and how they ended up where they are now.

8. Decided that starting and finishing yet another boxset in -3 days counts as an example of your dedication.
9. Promised to save money but then spent more than you could really afford on stuff you didn’t really need.
10. Re-read books you haven’t opened for years simply to distract you from the present.
Hello, all 7 Harry Potter books.
11. Actually looked into changing career paths based on which TV shows you’re currently obsessed with.
