Why job hunting is a scam: Just Being Funny

Self-made millionaire Ramit Sethi says the one mistake to avoid when job hunting during the pandemic is to change your mind-set from “‘job seeker” to “top performer”. Imagine if a shift in mind-set was all you needed to get a job in this day and age. Not hard skills, work experience, or network contacts. Nah, just dreams and wishful thinking.

Sethi went on to advise that job seekers – I mean top performers – are only supposed to apply to 10 jobs versus sending our resume to everyone, because companies can sniff out generic resumes.

This is what I think: Job hunting should be treated less like a hunt and more like an email marketing scam.
