Application Survey Questionnaires

Job hunting sucks, and Application Survey Questionnaires are a big reason why. It’s not enough to have a resume with years of experience with a nice cover letter anymore. Now a lot of businesses have an Application Survey Questionnaire that you’re required to fill out. They’ll ask you a series of questions about whether or not you consider yourself to be a leader, if you are willing to take directions and criticism, and how you feel about personal problems in a professional environment.  It’s filled with tricks and traps designed to reveal your real personality and your character flaws. They’ll ask the same question a few different ways though out the survey in the hopes that you’ll answer it wrong at least once. It’s a bureaucratic way to sift through hundreds of applications, and lots of potential candidates are rejected because they don’t take tests well. And they are time consuming, so you’ll spend forty minutes filling out an application for a job you know you won’t get because you suck at Application Survey Questionnaires. I consider myself lucky because I already have a job (I’m just looking for a second one). I’m not feeling the pressure of a real job hunt. To all those on the job hunt: I wish you well, it’s a jungle out there.
