How do I not make a friend feel bad when I've succeeded where he's failed?

A bit of background: it's grad recruitment season where I live. A friend and I have been applying for jobs as they pop up. He's gotten rejection letters from all that he's applied for, whereas I'm getting shortlisted and interviews. It's not really in my hands, but I can't help but feel bad when he asks me if I have heard back from an organisation and I've gotten a yes when he's gotten a no.

Just be honest but don't rub it in.
Offer to help with his CV or applications, maybe he is doing something wrong that you can help with.

Well you can refer him to your place of work after you've built some rapport with HR if he doesn't find anything...

Be honest and don't brag, if they're a true friend they'll be happy for you. Times like these you actually find the true character of some people

It's less that his CV is lacking, but more that he doesn't have much work experience and he isn't much of an 'all rounder' that these jobs tend to be looking for. Plus, his grades aren't the greatest. They're not bad, they're just not as good as they need to be for these jobs.

That is an option, but he'd be looking at months before he got a job if I went with that

I don't think he resents me for it or anything. I just think he feels bad about himself, and I don't want him to feel like that
