09:00 AM: Real Job Begins

I find myself bracing for another day in the world of recruitment, a profession I have grown to despise. With a heavy sigh, I reluctantly drag myself to my morning kick-off meeting with my team which is run by my manager, my enthusiasm shattered by the sheer weight of the tasks ahead when I could spend that time making anonymous memes. I skim through the job openings, feeling detached and uninspired, as I half-heartedly attempt to match the qualifications with potential candidates, each one a reminder of the monotonous and unfulfilling nature of my work. Mornings become a dreaded time of trudging through the motions, lacking the motivation and passion that once fueled my career aspirations.

With a subtle flick of the mouse, we discreetly switch tabs from CVs to a secret haven of entertainment - LinkedIn. It's our guilty pleasure, and a desperate attempt to inject some joy into an otherwise mundane day. As we scroll through endless posts of 5 am Club, how to make £1 Million in 7 days, pics of dogs and recruiters posting bikini-laden pictures in the vein attempt to let the world know they’re back from holiday, we do our best to avoid detection from our ever-watchful manager. We comment on these posts in the hope they realise just how ridiculous they are being. It may not be the most productive use of my time, but we are taking our savage comments as a win.
