It’s time to move on, but looking for a job is a pain. Between classifieds, message boards, social networks, and the Internet, the search is never-ending. If I’m lucky enough to find a job that looks interesting I’m hit in the junk with fine print. If I can pass these two levels of mind-numbing gameplay I still have to figure out what information the prospective employer wants. A resume? Cover letter? Portfolio? References? A swift kick in the face?
Supposing I successfully defeat the paperwork thugs on Level 3, I move to the final stage and a one-on-one with the Big Boss. To defeat the Boss I must use a buzzword Mortal Kombat combo coupled with a several outbursts of fake laughter and interviewese. But a victory may not be a victory because there’s a good chance I’ll be as disappointed by the interview endgame as I was with the end of Legend of Zelda.
