In today's competitive job market, simply securing a job interview can feel like a major accomplishment. Every job profile with hundreds of candidates applying makes the chances of securing an interview tough. You might have to do many interviews, and companies are picky about who they hire. Ansley recently posted on her handle (@tiny_tobasco) about how she was one of the candidates for a cafe job and the video attracted traction of 346.9k views. She started her video by stating, “I feel like people think I’m being incredibly facetious when I say it’s hard to get a job in L.A. right now. I’m currently going to the third round of interviews for a cafe job".

She was trying hard to get this job but did not understand the process as the server job needs no major educational qualifications. Yet she had to go through the third round. Ansley ends the video by saying, "And I am going into the third round of interviews for it. There were over 450 applicants. I just want to let that sink in". She then asked her viewers how she looked by slashing her fit and thought the cafe would hire her based on her styling. Many viewers had diversified opinions on the video revolving around the employment scene in LA. Some are still struggling to get lucrative jobs while others faced rejection even after 5-10 rounds of interviews.

A lot of them shared their experiences and opinions on how they are not getting any interview calls even after applying to over 100 job profiles. Survival in LA is difficult not just because of the rising prices but also because the job market situation there is pretty disturbed.
