With the advent of technology, the  hiring process has become easy

Technology has changed everything and it is your absolute best buddy. But sometimes it creates many problems to mankind. For example, if we are excited after buying our own gadget, the technology of the gadget may make us frustrated by its poor performance compared to our expectations.

Frustrating career sites:

Candidates/students are facing troubles with career sites as they are asking to fulfill all the information, which might take more time. These sites making the career section, troublesome.

Sometimes, websites are taking more time to load, which makes them frustrated. It is taking a longer than a few minutes to accept the information provided for a job application.
