Friends, Romans, job-hunters and unemployed: lend me your ears.
In my months-long search for full-time employment, I have devised a musical journey to help you through the process of searching for jobs, polishing off those resumes, and filling out page after page of applications.
Editing Resume & Filling out Applications for the First Time:
“Pretty Girl Rock” – Keri Hilson
All eyes on me when I walk in,
No question that this girl’s a 10
Don’t hate me ’cause I’m beautiful…
“Applause” – Lady Gaga
“I Look Good” – Chalie Boy
First Job Rejection Email:
“Forget You” – CeeLo Green
And I was like ughhh… WHYYY?
“Keep Your Head Up” – Andy Grammar
Editing Resume & Filling out Applications for the Second Time:
“Take a Chance on Me” – Abba
“All I Really Want” – Alanis Morissette
Second Job Rejection Email:
“Mean” – Taylor Swift
“Don’t Bring Me Down” – Electric Light Orchestra
Editing Resume & Filling out Applications for the 400th time:
“Jesus, Take the Wheel” – Carrie Underwood
“Misery” – Maroon 5
I am in misery..there ain’t nobody who can comfort me…why won’t you answer me? I’m desperate and confused.
“The Long Way Around” – The Dixie Chicks
400th Job Rejection Email:
“That’s Life” – Frank Sinatra
“They Just Keep Moving the Line” – Megan Hilty (SMASH)
But for real though, listen to this song when you’re at rock bottom.
“Roar” – Katy Perry
I am a champion…and you’re gonna hear me ROAAAAAAAAR (editor’s note: you’ll feel much more empowerment if you pretend to be a tiger)
