I had to laugh at this article. It was so true!
My daughter just graduated from college this past August, and began looking for a job immediately. Thankfully she was finally hired a couple of weeks ago.
However, the job hunt/interview process had been long and painful. Same type of questions as this article at every interview. It was as if all HR people had no thought processes of their own and read the same playbook questions. At a couple of the job interviews she felt as if she was being interviewed out of duty rather than out of interest.
