Job hunts inspire some strange search queries. When you’re looking for a job, you’ll probably turn to Google for some much-needed help. If those searches ever turned a little weird, though, you’re not alone.

Zippia used Google Trends to find each state’s most … interesting job-related Google search. As you can imagine, some of these results are a little strange. Others are laugh-out-loud hilarious.
The funniest – and strangest – searches by state
Some states had pretty normal searches, like “driving jobs” or “Cajun jobs” (try to guess which state searched that one). Others had us raising our eyebrows. Check them out:
|Connecticut||How to get fired|
|Delaware||How to win the lottery|
|Florida||Jobs that don’t drug test|
|Colorado||Quarter life crisis|
|Georgia||You about to lose your job|
|California||How to become an escort|
|Michigan||Memes for work|
|New York||Hate my boss|
|Rhode Island||No shave November|
|Tennessee||Hot Topic careers|
Thanks to this list, we learned what “corporate goth” is. We also learned just how much those sky-high rent prices are impacting Californians. We hope folks in Georgia are doing okay, too.
