Practical Advice – the job application portal
Hey job-hunters! Ok, we all know that filling out job applications online majorly sucks. Worst part by FAR are those annoying application portals which were all clearly designed either by monkeys or by engineers that didn’t make the cut at Groupon.
Next time you’re faced with a crazy long application portal, copy and paste all the fields into a word document, and write your responses out there before transferring them back into the form. This is so you’ll preserve your responses for the next application and so that you’ll have your responses saved just in case the portal crashes (something that has happened to me more than I’d like to admit).
I also recommend having a glass of wine handy!
