3. Confusion

Shortly after your fingers start cramping…. Inbox: 0?!

Wait but I reached out to like 100 recruiters, at least.

4. Anger

You had a couple promising interviews and firm handshakes, but still no offers. Not even a rejection call.

You start scrolling through your feed thinking, You think you’re SO COOL with your new project, your super cool new VR campaign and your exclusively cool new business.

5. Depression

You start getting up late, stop brushing your hair and all your tabs switched from job sites to food blogs and listicles of cute cats.

Forever at home.

6.  Hope

But then, your newly-employed friend tells you about Vitamin T. You sign up and discover the team of people who will find the perfect creative job to fit your one-of-a-kind skills.
