What is the quickest you got feedback when applied for a job posted online?
My record was broken recently when I applied in the middle of the night and got a rejection before 9am same day from the company in my timezone.
The question that popped in my head - is the company extremely so efficient and was able to assess my skills and qualifications, compare them against the role, make the decision and inform me of that, or simply it was something else that prompted that decision.
And I do believe in this case it was not my professional qualifications that drove that decision.
Even aside from what we are asked and chose to report on the voluntary questionnaires there are certain aspects that are rather apparent from the resume itself.
What bothers me is that the organizations most loud at advocating diversity and inclusion usually mean opposite or just having the particular group in mind, whether the gender, race, age, orientation, veteran status or whatever.
Not only it is complete lie, but makes no sense even from the business perspective.
Do we really need only elder people working with and for elderly? Can only veterans work and help veterans? Can only people of particular race understand the customer base comprised of individuals of that race? Can not organization with one gender in mind employ people of other gender/s?
Discrimination is a hard topic to discuss and violation hard to prove.
Still, those organization that claim solely to work in the inclusion and diversity have to phrase more as "special interest", and not overall inclusion as they clearly exclude all other groups.
