    just noticed this after applying for a few positions.

    I hate having to send my resume in, then they want me to type all my information that is contained on my resume into online forms, man that really burns my grits.

    I applied for a job not to long ago and had to write up ALL my employment for the last 10 years...not once, not twice, your thinking three times? nope 4 times.

    wholly overkilling paper work.

    That was quite annoying when I was actively looking.

    I sometimes wonder if they do it to catch you in a lie. :shrug: Either way it's annoying as hell.

    I would think it's so they can search for key words easier. :shrug:

    I mean the ones that do multiple pages but at different times. But yea the key words would make sense.

    it also saves them from having to pay a data entry person to input all kinds of crap from your resume into their system.

    might be different if resumes were standardized.
