At least it's random, which is on topic.

After about 4 pages of resume debate it is not really random any more.

It's a reading test. Can you overcome this basic hurdle? I've been paid to help people with resumes and cover letters. Got them jobs too. The formatting of a resume, as long as it's consistent and readable, doesn't matter..
I'd review them in case there is anyone still worth talking to. I'd also be asking them why they chose to attach vs copy/paste in that initial conversation. Sounds like the job is remote, so reading instructions and following is reasonable as a hurdle.

I'm with the others, my PDF/word version turns into a wall of unreadable text if I copy paste. So I'd have spent the half hour+ formatting it. Of course, I'd have saved that in case any other hiring manager were asking for the same...

Job market is a joke. Looks good on paper. Not so good with experience.

Having just watched my son try to find an entry level job in his field after college graduation, I can attest to that.

The problem, in my experience, is that ever job posting now gets flooded with applicants of varying level of applicable experience. Sure, it's easier to find postings for jobs now, but it also is too easy to apply to postings. The best candidates often get lost in the noise, or get rejected because they missed including some keyword in their resume.

Then there are the brainless employers that post "Entry Level Position requiring 3 to 5 years of experience" ads but have the jobs salaried at the entry level position. People with experience don't apply because they know it will underpay them, and people who really are entry-level don't apply because they don't have the experience, or if they do apply they get rejected immediately because of the automated filtering.

And then employers decide to take their sweet time with the entire process, and don't communicate with candidates.

One of my Canadian vendors almost died because they kept throwing the simples fixes at him for years. Turns out it was throat cancer and by the time they caught it, was almost too late.

Well. Crap. It's an ugly, rainy morning today and traffic was as bad as it typically is. It did that thing where it's slow, then it's going, but suddenly slow again. Normally I'm pretty good at judging the stop and go, but I missed it this time and traffic stopped faster than I was expecting. Hard braking turned into sliding, which turned into not wanting to hit the person in front of me. Back end came out and I swerved right just in time to catch the bumper of Corolla with my passenger door.

No injuries and the cars are mostly fine. She'll need a bumper and I'll need a door. I'm just hoping to not get thrown under the bus to the insurance company and my hopes aren't that high.

How's everyone else's Monday going?

The worst part is waiting for the report to be filed. I don't even care about the damage to the car. I'll need a new door, big whoop. But the other person is the one filing the report and I can't stop thinking about the blame game that will happen while I'm not there. We couldn't get an officer on the scene because 20 other wrecks happened at the same time, so no I'm defenseless and I hate it. I will most likely be found at fault.

From your description there is no blame game to be played. You slid into moving traffic did you not? Where is the blame on the other driver? Am I missing something? Can you not both file a report?
