WorkDaze’s DeClassified Job Search Survival Guide

WWMD: What would Moze do

The time is now, everyone. In the fall you said you’d leave your toxic job. In the winter you said you’d wait it out until spring. In the spring you said you’d mute Christina on Slack. Now it’s summer, nothing has changed, and Christina is still Slacking you “just following up on this” five minutes after sharing the meeting agenda. It’s time to make a move.

Do you fantasize about dropping your phone into your coworker’s iced coffee and making a break for it? You might just need a long vacation to reset. Have you increased your therapy sessions to deal with your passive-aggressive supervisor and HR’s refusal to acknowledge it? If the answer is yes, head to step 2.

The best place to start? By ditching the resumé you’ve been updating with new action words since college and creating something a hiring manager would actually want to look at.

To save yourself the inevitable menty B that comes after moving one column of text only to throw the whole thing off kilter, try giving your CV a makeover with VisualCV. Their résumé builder will make you look like you listened in that visual design workshop corporate put on last year—you’ll stand out from the crowd (in a good way).

Use the AI Builder to generate content for your summary and work experience sections by inputting details about your current role and career history. And regenerate as many times as you’d like until they hit right.

  • 80% of workers who quit during the “great resignation” regret it.

  • And the payroll firm UKG found 20% of the people who left their jobs ended up going back to those jobs with a new nickname: “boomerang employees.”

Those boomerangs are the rebound relationships of the job search, and you don’t want to end up in a toxic relationship job because you were too eager to say yes because “we’re all family here” and “be prepared to wear several hats” didn’t jump out as you read the job description.

And "WFH" isn't an acronym for "Will Fail Here." Throughout your job history, you’ve grown your skills and gained a lot of experience that shouldn’t be discounted—you deserve all of the benefits. Even if you don’t “check all the boxes,” live your best life and submit that snazzy new CV.

Just imagine what would have happened if Elle Woods never applied to Harvard Law—channel your inner Reese and you, too, might find yourself saying “what, like it’s hard?”
