While applying for a position on an ATS/HR software, I had to enter my home address (not unusual). I live in the United States, so I had to specify what state I lived in. Since there is a predefined list of (501) possibilities, it makes sense to include them in a list:
First, spot the problem (should be obvious).
Second, explain why. I’m 95% sure this was not just a “stupid mistake”, but that there is a logical explanation for it.

- More if you include the territories like Puerto Rico, Guam, etc. ↩
