There’s no way you could not feel for this jobseeker.

The TikToker is addressing a really serious issue, as she believes it’s now almost impossible to get a well paying job with experience!

And many of those who viewed her emotional video, agree that we could already be in a depression that NO ONE is even talking about. Stagnant wages and increasing goods are putting a lot of folk under real pressure.

@Anna.woood told her followers: “The job market right now is bleak. I want to know how people in my generation are supposed to get on in this economy? I have over 10 years of experience in sales, retail management, upper management, higher end training. I mean – the list goes on – visual merchandising, marketing, social media marketing, social media content, creating. Literally, the list goes on.”

She continued: “I’ve worked on commission. I’ve worked hourly. I was recently laid off from my job. It was supposed to be a really good paying job. And I’ve applied to over 500 jobs. I had only one interview, didn’t get it. And everything else is just a rejection letter.”

Honestly, how can this be right? This is a problem and if it’s affecting y’all, we need to be raising this!

She continued: “I have a good resume. I have a good cover letter. I have great experience. I’m actually a really valuable worker and I know that. I know my worth in the workplace. And I can’t get a job. Now I can get a job for $18 an hour. But $18 an hour, in this economy, doesn’t cut it. I need to be making at least $70,000 a year. And that’s not even to be living lavish. That’s to be surviving. So, if I with 10 years of experience and all those things I said, can’t get a job, how I’m supposed to get on? Asking for a friend.”
