Snapchat Job

Now when your mum says you're "wasting your time" on Snapchat, you can actually tell her you're job hunting!

After stepping on an up-turned plug or picking up an avocado that's past its prime, job hunting is pretty much the worst thing ever.

From spending hours picking out the perfect font for your CV, deciding what shoes to wear for the interview and answering questions like "what sort of animal would you be?" - searching for a job is just no fun.
