Being a job seeker is not all sunshine and roses.  Sometimes we just need a laugh to break up the repetitive job listings on LinkedIn and the “thanks but no thanks” emails.

Here a few lines might cheer you up a little.  Even a small grin will make a better day.

  • I just lost my job as a Psychic. I did not see that coming.
  • I love being a maze designer. I get completely lost in my work..
  • Inspecting mirrors is a job I could really see myself doing.
  • Being friends with co-workers is like having pet tigers…. fun in theory but you still wonder when they will turn on you.
  • I thought I wanted a career. Turns out I just wanted paycheques.
  • Some days, the best thing about my job is that my chair spins.
  • Thanks for the advice about my career. Maybe someday  you will have one of your own.
  • My career plans were much more exciting when I was five.
  • Success is doing what you love and making it a career, but I don’t know who will pay me to drink beer while looking at cat pictures.

And finally, put on your headphones and have an interview-fail giggle here.


Feel free to pass this along to your friends and former colleagues – it might be the best thing they get all day!
