Does this hiring process look familiar? We wanted to highlight how crazy getting a job can be, especially at most big companies.  Most candidates have a similar experience to our fictional friend Jim. Even with great advances in technology, the hiring process hasn’t gotten any better. It would be easy to say that it’s worse than ever.
