    Can they? Yes. Absolutely. 100%.

    A local factory likes people with college degrees, any degree, no matter what college or course, but also offer tests twice a year in large groups for exactly the reason that plenty y of people are qualified, and can do everything they need, but never went to college.

    Will they? Probably not unless it’s a niche employer. Why bother going through the extra effort when you can just say “degrees only” and turn your nose up at anyone without one?

      I guess 5 rounds of 90 minutes long multi-stage interview process is much more efficient, where people selling an idealised version of themselves in imaginary scenarios.

      Also talking to HR/recruitment department, who has no idea of the actual job is a great way to find the right candidate.

      …its ridiculous

        I hate interviews. I’ve been on both sides and neither is fun.

        One person is pretending to be what they think the employer wants. The other is trying to figure out who’s the least full of shit.

        I just generally hate situations where everybody is expected to be fake, and not playing the “right character” will get you shunned.
