Job Hunt is an everyday intervention / protest based on the idea that I can’t secure what’s considered as ‘real’ employment. I began to tire of spending all my time filling out application forms and only getting rejection emails in return, if anything at all, so I started sending out joke covering letters and posting my own fake job ads on job sites, some of which were approved by the moderators which in turn led to people sending me their CVs. I also recorded a song which is essentially a job rejection email in musical form which I plan on emailing to all the jobs that have sent me rejection emails in the past.
