What’s the biggest waste of time when applying for jobs? is it experience?

Job hunting is absolutely stupid, it’s a complete farce, a bigger waste of time then reading the daily mail. You spend ages filling out application forms, wasting time entering your school life like its an autobiography.

Forever adding password you’ll never remember¬†and setting stupid security questions, all for an account you’ll only touch once and dispose of the next day. Who gives two monkeys what my first dog’s name was or the car I pretended to own when I was 19?

after wasting an hour setting up a CV through there specification, I then waste another hour going through a CIA style interrogation asking questions totally¬†unrelated to the job, wanting to guess my personality on the answers I give. how can you see someone’s personality through asking them “what would you do if something broke? or “a dog approached you in the park, what would you do?”

How is this relatable to a working environment? am I ever going to be replacing a till system or tracking a dog owner down, when I am applying to fry chicken and pretend to give a rats backside about the horrible fat filled product, or shoving a pizza in someones face at a shopping centre outlet.

then they turn around and say “you’re not the right candidate, please apply again in 12 months time” 12 month time? why will I wait 12 months, I’m looking for a part-time job not applying for RuPaul’s Drag Race!

I Hate applying for jobs online, why can’t we go back in time and be old-fashioned, going door to door with CVs and hoping for the best. Showing the employer the kind of person we are in the flesh and not some automatically produced facade based on some useless questions?

IMO: Job Hunting Is Absolutly Absurd

There was once a time when to obtain employment you’d simply pop into the place and ask for a job, Go back later that week for an interview and if successful you’d be employed! Huzzar.

Yet now it’s absolutely stupid the lengths you’ve gotta go to now to get a job. There’s the completely insane qualification needed for some jobs. For one stupid job in retail needs at least 5 years experience! 5 years experience of what? scanning a barcode!

One job I looked at required a minimum of a years experience in retail, That’s a huge amount of the population especially the likes of me a student in college.

Then there is the lack of personal communication in hunting for a job. Every Job seems to be only online and all done through stupid quizzes and tests.

One such job I looked at required me to spend an hour and a half doing a stupid quiz to determine if I’m fit for it. Guess what? I got Rejected because I answered one question, not to their specifications.

How is that fair? they haven’t even met me, let alone get to know me. they think they can just assume and insinuate who I am through a bunch of utter stupid questions about animals and spirits.

Yet even when I apply for a job with just a CV, There’s a chance ill never hear from it again and apparently chasing up isn’t a thing anymore.

Yet if I don’t have a job, I get abuse hurled at me. That I am a spoilt child who will never achieve anything.

How Is it fair to expect someone who barely has free time to jump through hoops and bark like a circus seal for a little bit of money? To be dictated a job by some unfair algorithm?
