Job Hunting Has Become Ridiculous

It’s been ages since I’ve posted in this blog and I thought I would share something I just shared with my LinkedIn network. Since this blog is also meant to be a place for me to put my thoughts out there. I keep reading articles about atrocious practices by interviewers lately and I find it so disappointing. I am keeping faith that some companies do not find it acceptable to (unfortunately not an exhaustive list) laugh in candidates faces, tell them that their experience is not experience at all, yet they have not graduated recently enough to be considered for entry positions either, and insult them to the point of declaring that a monkey could have performed their most recent positions. I also can’t leave out possibly the worst variation, which I just learned existed last night, saying NOTHING AT ALL. Apparently it is now the new normal to “interview” candidates via one-way video. This means that the candidates are given a list of questions and are to film a video and send it to a potential employer who may never even watch it, let alone get back to them. If you don’t have enough respect for candidates to even MEET them, there is a serious problem. I certainly hope that some people out there remember the time in their lives when they were searching for jobs. Have any of you experienced something like this? I am interested in hearing about it. PLEASE maintain respect for yourself when searching for jobs! How did this happen? How have we, as a society, allowed people to have this much power that they can treat people like dirt on the ground and constantly get away with it and come up with more ways to treat people even worse the next time around? If I was ever a hiring manager, I PROMISE I would never treat any person the way candidates are treated regularly in this day and age. It must be a real power trip to verbally spit in the faces of people who made the mistake of applying to work at your company. I wish there was something I could do to make a difference and change this clearly broken system. Any ideas?
