The job hunting industry is getting so bad that many employers are starting to question whether they can continue to support the business.
That’s according to a report from the Institute for Human Resources, which examined a large number of job-hunting ads on job boards.
“This is not a new trend,” the report states.
“For years, employers have been asking for ‘green’ candidates, those who have no previous job experience.
And it is not surprising that these candidates tend to be more qualified and have greater interest in the job market.
In short, there is more green in the hiring process.”
The report found that nearly half of all job postings on job search sites had an asterisk next to a job description, warning that the person might be underqualified for the job.
And in the last two years, job seekers are increasingly asking employers to screen candidates for a wide range of qualifications, including criminal records, a criminal record history, mental health history, and a criminal history of substance abuse.
That includes people who are homeless, people who have suffered domestic violence, people with mental health issues, people on drugs, and people with substance abuse disorders.
And the report found employers have become increasingly concerned about job-seekers who may not be up to the job of running a small business.
While some companies may be hesitant to hire job seekers who may have a criminal background or a history of domestic violence because of the negative impact it might have on their business, they have to worry about hiring applicants who are mentally ill, those with substance use disorders, or people who may be at risk of contracting HIV/AIDS.
And some companies have begun to take steps to screen job seekers, with some companies offering free screening services.
One of those companies, GoDaddy, has been offering free, confidential job screening tests for over a year.
It was launched in February 2017, and now offers the service for $5 a month.
The test has become an increasingly popular choice among employers, according to the report.
And while the results are not perfect, the test is the best available.
“GoDaddy offers the most complete and comprehensive job screening test that allows employers to assess job seekers against all of the known risk factors that could lead to a successful employment decision, including substance abuse, mental illness, and substance abuse history,” the study says.
“The GoDaddy test does not have a score, but it does provide a snapshot of a job seeker’s employment history in order to help employers determine if a job search is not feasible.”
As we’ve covered previously, some employers have begun offering job-search services that can help job seekers prepare for interviews.
For example, one company offers a virtual job search and hiring tool that helps job seekers assess the skills and knowledge they need for the interview process.
The company has been testing thousands of job applicants in an effort to find the most qualified candidates, but the company also says that job seekers should use the testing service as a starting point.
“We think the virtual job searching test is an excellent tool to get to know potential job seekers,” GoDaddy said in a statement to Ars.
“As a small company, we use it to evaluate candidates for employment based on their experience, skills, and knowledge, but our job-seeking tool does not necessarily match with job seekers’ needs.
We also encourage job seekers to review their interview history in case we need to change a position or take action based on the results of the virtual test.”
The Institute for HR and Human Resources says it is encouraging employers to look at the information available and to take the test if they have concerns about job seekers.
“In the past, many employers were concerned that the job search testing service could lead them to believe that the hiring person is unfit to conduct the job, or that they might have some underlying medical condition that could make them unsuitable for the position,” the institute’s CEO, Elizabeth Schlesinger, told Ars.
Schlesingers added that some employers may be less interested in job seekers that have criminal records.
“If you have a history that you think might disqualify you from an employer, then we think it is important to take a look at your history,” she said.
“When you get an opportunity to do a job, you should be prepared to take that job.”
While some employers are looking to hire applicants who have criminal histories, many more are just looking to recruit qualified applicants.
