There is a lot of complaining about worker shortages and a lot of jokes going on–like the above, which points out the ridiculousness of the interview process.

The thing is, it wouldn’t be funny if it wasn’t based in reality. Many companies have ridiculous hiring processes. Perhaps yours does.

Or perhaps, you’re looking for a free intern to do work. Like this posting on LinkedIn (yes, I notified the company that their internship was illegal and I notified LinkedIn.)

This is an unpaid virtual internship, but the experience and connections you will get for your professional portfolio and LinkedIn profile are priceless!

Sorry, you can’t have an unpaid intern do that because it is benefiting the company and this is not a non-profit.

Or you could be like the companies that this man applied to.

Now, of course, I don’t know if he’s telling the truth about the process, but it seems to make sense to me.

If you’re struggling to find candidates do the following:

  1. Be honest in your job postings. Sure, maybe you won’t get as many applicants, but you’ll get ones that want the job.
  2. Don’t try to get interns to fill vacant positions. And chances are, you can’t legally have an unpaid internship.
  3. If you aren’t getting applicants, then try increasing the pay, revising your job requirements, and lowering your standards.

People are looking for work. They aren’t looking to be exploited. They aren’t looking for lying liars.
