More specifically, I am currently referring to the horrible process of applying for jobs. It takes SO MUCH TIME to fill out job applications. I suppose that's not necessarily wasted time if one gets the job, however. But you know what is SUPER ANNOYING? The fact that you have to type in ALL THE INFORMATION THAT IS ALREADY ON YOUR RESUME....THAT YOU "CONVENIENTLY" JUST UPLOADED. I get really irritated when applications ask that you upload a resume and then requests you type out all of your work experience and, well, everything that is ON THAT RESUME AGAIN. I mean, listen, I spent a lot of time putting that resume together. And if you're going to look at it anyway, why exactly do I need to type all of it out AGAIN? And WHY, for Pete's sake, can't you AT LEAST make it so I can just copy and paste in that information from said resume?
Someone please explain if you know. I'd love to have an appreciation for this seemingly pointless process that repeats itself over and over again in my life.
