It’s not your fault

You new here? On the job hunt and feeling frustated?

Remember, it’s not your fault.

It’s the bullshit everyone’s been saying to you since you were in middle school. “Resume resume resume resume resume…” (we just vomited).

Well, better late than never. Hopefully we can be your Yoda, and guide you down a path that actually works.
