If you thought that after college you would never have to fill out any more applications, you are unfortunately mistaken. College applications are just the beginning of a whole series of applications.
Going through myriads of job applications this afternoon, I realize how difficult the job application process is. When you think your cover letter and resume are unique, there are millions of others out there just as or even more exceptional. As an employer must scan hundreds of applications, you must send hundreds of resumes and cover letters.
Then you realize that life will be one be one of endless applications, from grant requests to job proposals. Yet you will endure through it all.
