    did you just say "What about companies that require applicants to submit resumes, even if the job for which they are applying has nothing to do with resumes?"

    You know that is NOTHING like we are discussing or I said right?

    Not to mention a resume is a list of your qualification so that IS needed for a job and resumes can be written.

    I feel this is a violation of equal employment opportunity due to the fact that not everyone has a computer at home to be able to apply.
    No. If anything it is a positive step to ensure people dont just hire friends and friends of friends. Many large businesses have moved to this practice to take local screening and hiring out of the loop. It makes for a more 'fair' (ugggh) process.

    Kali...In todays day and age, how many people do you know of that would look for work dont have access to basic computing skills, public access computers at libraries and employment centers (or even on their cell phones) etc? People make the opportunities they want to have. Frankly...if someone doesnt know how to do basic computing skills anymore they are not viable candidates for a job. No business should be obligated to randomly pick any schmuck out of a hat and hire them regardless of their skills and abilities.

    Lets not forget this example involves a business giving you no other way to apply. Of course if they allow you to do it on site then fine, its a non-issue but if they dont its very relevant.

    For example the company I work has a room with two computers in that people can go on line and fill out anything we may require. If a business cant provide such I think its their duty to accept paper apps.

    Im just not ok with a business requiring something you dont need to do the job, something seems off about that.

    and again I agree that it COULD be a non-issue IF they give of have access but if thats not the case then it is a very real issue.
    That's really just a rare instance, not enough to require all businesses to have paper applications or some other nonsense.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    No it is fine. Libraries, schools, friends, kinkos, Apple store, at&t, malls, all of these places have a way to do the application online. Also here is something else--saves on paper waste, helps organize better, etc.

    You are silly.

    No, it's not discrimination. In today's world it makes total and complete sense to do everything through the internet. Eventually, this is how all companies will go about hiring. Personally I can't wait for the day, I ****ing hate paperwork.

    Yes, I agree with you, it is a clearly violation of civil liberties, companies must give additional opportunities to apply per post.

    Most businesses aren't going to read a handwritten resume, and I don't blame them. For the same reason that businesses might demand an online application, they might demand a typed resume: It's too much of a hassle for them to screw around with other formats. I mean, practically anything can be construed as a violation of civil rights if the business just doesn't feel like jumping through hoops when there are plenty of applicants who can follow their rules.

    I think that not wanting to dick around with people who can't follow common instructions is a perfectly legitimate business concern. If someone could demonstrate that the business was requiring online applications specifically because they wanted to exclude members of a protected class from applying for the job, that would be different. But I don't think that the "adverse impact" laws really apply if there is a legitimate business interest at stake in streamlining their application process.

    LOL who got "pissy" ? I even said good night to everyone in the thread and said "nice talks" with a simley face cause I had to go, is that something pissy people do? Its a message board objective adults should never be pissy on here unless some extreme random case lol

    Anyways instead of deflecting stay on topic and address my post. Nobody said the company should "jump through hoops" or that these people can't follow instructions. My post is about a company requiring something that is not need for the actual job.
