    The best are the ones who make you fill a huge fucking form and then ask you for a pdf cv as well.

    Can't understand what is their problem. If I want to generate a CV then I will go to search some template. BTW try Stackoverflow's developer story. It generates a nice resume.

    Well, its pretty hard to extract the details of your CV with an automated software. But if you put these details in forms, the data can be filtered or sorted, before a human looks at your real CV.

    @lukegv well they can at least provide an import from LinkedIn/GitHub/Stackoverflow button

    Aren't these mainly so companies get a uniform template so it's easier for them to parse the data at a glance?
    Probably not as good as it means they don't have to properly ready your CV 🤔

    @lukegv couldn't AI solve it though?

    Because they want data. They're not there to give you a job and then you fuck off without giving anything back.

    I'm pretty sure it's mainly to improve their hiring process. They can't keep the data anyhow, at least according to EU laws on data safety.

    @lukegv they can because you gave them permission.
