Why I hate HR proles

Because they advertise a position seeking a maths or stats degree, and then reject you saying they were after "National travel certisicates [sic] level 3 & 4".

This raises a number of issues. Firstly, given that HR professionals are supposedly paid to manage the recruitment process and ensure that the candidates they get are a good match for the position, you'd expect them to at least advertise it correctly so as to avoid wasting everybody's time. And secondly, I'm shocked that anyone can charge $2000 and take 23 weeks to teach this bullshit.

What next? People will actually be paying to get a Bronze Swimming Certificate?
