I hate filling out job applications, they make me feel useles. I’ve been very good at every job I’ve had (apart from telesales, which I consider a blessing) but I can never work out how I’m supposed to explain my innate brilliance.
It doesn’t help that some of the questions are dumb. On the form I’m filling out right now (yes, this post is avoidance) there’s half a page where I have to give an answer that demonstrates my “Respect for Diversity”. I can’t help but think that they want some sort of PC bullshit and the answer that I want to give- so long as someone is good natured and competent and shows me the same level of respect as I show them I don’t care about gender, race etc.- won’t be good enough.
