“How did you hear about us?”

A classical question that companies like to have their ATS/HR software ask is “How did you hear about us?” or “How did you hear about this job opening?”. I’ll let someone who works in HR explain in the comments why they like to ask this question.

I will, instead, show you this pseudo-religious answer possibility from one company:


Makes it sound like God(s) gave them the inside tip about it when they changed their faith, instead of just talking with someone already on the job.

The obvious fault here was someone misspelling “conversation” and then accepting spell check’s suggestion without making sure it was the correct one. Ooo.
