Graduating college is a monumental time in an individual's life. It is the culmination of years of hard work, something that some people began preparing for in high school! Alas, in recent years we have all come to realize that graduating college is just a step in life and the next step... getting a sweet job with that fancy degree... it's not as easy as we were made to believe.
Degree-carrying college graduates all over the country are working in fast food or crashing on their parents' couch while they apply relentlessly for a job after job trying to move on to that next step in life. Some jobs are even more difficult, expecting applicants to have both years of experience and a degree, neither of which seem possible without the sort of jobs people are applying for. It's a conundrum indeed with all these college graduates not having jobs but instead of wallowing in depression over it many have taken to Tumblr to have a good chuckle over it, creating and sharing some seriously relatable posts that are clever, witty, and painfully accurate.
Sometimes the best thing you can do when you're frustrated with not having a job is just laugh. So go on, you earned these chuckles.

AKA, "please hire me so my parents will stop pestering me."
"Can I pay with pocket lint?"
We can't prove it per say but we're sure of it.
"I. GIVE. UP." Such tomfoolery.
I bet you never thought you could relate to one of these little guys.
I mean, maybe this small bit of encouragement will go somewhere special!
This one is my favorite idea, though.
Sorry pal, can't risk them hiring you over me. I've been job hunting for 3 years.
Seriously, who the heck is out there getting these jobs?
It's like they think you haven't thought of that concept yet.

She's so relatable.
And apparently I need the money things for everything that isn't a money things.
You don't have a job, remember?
Go get drunk.
Facebook loves you whether you have a job or not.
It's a beautiful tool.

At least we have some goals. Some people don't even have that.
Me, I'm the hand you've been dealt!
