Sometimes We Recruiters Forget that Looking for a Job Is the Hardest Thing

In a post about the homeless a while ago I made a pretty bold statement, even for me, which is rare: “The three most stressful life events according to psychologists are, in order, getting married, buying a home and looking for a job.” I have been on both sides of that coin and I know what sort of horse manure you have to swim through to get a job — any job. It’s a painful and scary process no matter what your pedigree is. I have had it pretty lucky, but there was the time I lived in my car outside of an apartment building that had all my worldly possessions padlocked behind a door of the apartment I use to have.
