@makingarecord oh how good is it when a website is like "upload it and we'll automatically fill out the forms for you" and then on the next page your First Name has been filled out with your Suburb

@burgerdrome yes very real! I put a lot of work into formatting my resume so a human can read it, but applying for things takes twice as long because a machine can't read it.

@makingarecord Please laboriously enter all of the contact details for your referees, even though they are there on the form. Please enter them again. Now let's talk about your work history
