The Job Hunt


We've been How I Met Your Mother-less for the past two weeks (last week's episode was preempted due to President Obama's press conference), and we're not going to get another one for two more weeks, when The Stinsons airs on Monday, March 2.


This dearth in How I Met Your Mother is decidedly un-wesome, and leaves us all with an empty hole in our hearts. There is sadness in all the land, but thankfully, the last new episode that aired, The Possimpible provided so much great material that I, for one, am still talking about it. Here's the quick and dirty recap of the episode: Robin (Cobie Smulders) is going to get deported if she doesn't find a new job in five days. Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) helps her with her video resume, while the rest of the gang decides that their own CVs deserve a quick editing too.


It's amazing to me how one hour of updating my resume can transform me from a bright, confident woman into an emotional wreck, a veritable shell of a person. Leave to the genius team of Craig Thomas and Carter Bays to turn something as odiously unpleasant and discouraging as job hunting, and turn it into an amazing half hour of comedy. I can only imagine what it must be like to be looking for a job right now, with the economy in a shambles.


So, with that, I'd like to highlight the resumes of some of my favorite characters from my favorite show on TV, How I Met Your Mother.
