Technology: a love-hate relationship almost anyone can relate to.

One minute you’re praising the internet gods for delivering the latest Drake meme, and the next you’re whipping your phone at a wall for its 30-minute battery life.

But when you’re on the job hunt, the stakes are high. You could be one bad signal away from missing a life-changing phone call. If you’re feeling the stress – or if you’ve experienced some of these tragic scenarios – take solace in knowing that you’re not alone.
