    Paper and pen works great and can be supplied by the employer just like internet access or simply just accepting a hardcopy

    Some employers require that you pass a pre-employment physical.
    Some employers require that you pass an aptitude test.
    Some employers require three professional references.
    Some employers require that you be a non-smoker.
    Some employers require credit checks that can remove you from consideration.
    Most employers require drug screenings.
    Most employers require background checks.

    Are those things discrminatory? No. Because an employer is allowed to decide (outside of race, religion, and sexual orientation) the type of employee they want working for them. If they want to use electronic application processes and you want to work for them then you have to use their application process. You aren't being mandated to appy for that job.

    Thats simply YOUR story not everyone reality, cyber cafes? lol cause those are everywhere in the country, operate 24/7 and give you free computer access and internet usage on every corner no matter where you live.

    Cell phone for the poor and type you resume on it or do a job application on it, right.

    No need to question their access to employment based of acces to free internet they arent related at all.

    AGain to be clear Im not saying its a large majority of people that couldnt accomplish this but what I am saying is it shouldn't be, my access is not your access and I cant ASSume that everybody can just do this, peoples lives and parts of the country are VERY different from eachother.

    Again Im looking for logic why a job would require you to have access to something you don't need to perform the job. And I have already admitted that maybe im overlooking something. All I need is proof/logic that it makes sense for a job to do so and to turn down the 12 hardcopy apps they might get a year since its so easy for everyone to get internet access.

    If every employer only accepted e-applications you might, possibly, on some far distant planet actually have a point. But that isn't the case. So it isn't discrimination. Apply somewhere else or get resourceful. If you want to work there are many, many areas at which you can gain access to the internet to apply (if you want to work for an employer that requires e-applications). As far as resumes go? Nothing wrong with requiring a typed resume. Employment service centers offer help with these for free.

    As I said, if a potential employee cannot access the resources he needs to GET the job, I question is ability to acess the resources he needs to DO the job. Having requirements is not discrimination unless it involves race, sexual preference, or religion.

    I mean if you truly the numbers will be very low and rare wheres the harm in not accepting those what 12 hard copies a year?

    I agree than the majority of people should be able to get access but if they cant they should never be denied, why punish people trying to get a job when we have all the free loaders that we do.

    Im just saying Ill never see the logic behind requiring an applicant to do something that is not require for the actual job.
    Because getting to a computer is so easy, you're just making up excuses of why someone can't when they can.

    There's no excuse for it.
    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.

    So are you implying that if ONE company doesnt want to hire women thats ok, cause women can just go somewhere else? Or does that logic only work for YOUR example?

    Thats YOUR opinion and for some people it is NOT true its that simple.
    Again Im not saying companies cant use e-apps or want them, but if a person give them a hard copy cause that all they have access to I dont think they should have the right to simply reject it on that alone especially if internet access isnt needed for the job performance.

    My company does E-Apps, we accept hard copies and we have a room here that you can do you resume/app in if you like. We wanted to stream line the process so we did so, we didn't place the burden on the applicant because that's not fair and it discriminates. And even though we have a room to do so in we only operate so many hours and HR is only here so many hours so we do still accept hard copies. Which aren't many. I hate working for a company with so much common sense.

    Paper application would be discrimination against people who can't write.

    My local libraries will HELP with this entire situation if you just talk to them about what you're doing.

    What about having to go in person and have an interview? Isn't that a violation of people's rights seeing as how many don't have adequate transportation?

    The concern is just silly.
