3. Jealousy.

5. Panic.

About your complete lack of prospects. And your impending homelessness. What if no one ever hires you? What if you’re destined to a life completing online quizzes and watching Loose Women?

12. Relief.

In all honesty though, you’re not actually ready for a job yet. For a start, you haven’t even finished series 4 of Game of Thrones.
