Rejected Paperwork
William Bryk

*** begin quote ***

The other day, I began completing an online employment application for a legal job to help children at risk of abuse. The prospective employer had already received my traditional resume and cover letter. By email, its personnel director advised me that I must complete the employer’s online application and sent me a link to the form.

Providing current contact information for a vanished employer is challenging. My former superiors have largely died, retired, or disappeared. Several government agencies and two law firms for which I’d worked during the last 40 years have ceased to exist.

The form insisted that Manhattan College and Fordham University School of Law, the schools I’d attended, were non-existent. This would be news to thousands of alumni and alumnae. I emailed the personnel director, who patiently explained how to deal with that.
