Companies that make you go through the entire job application process with multiple assessments, then filter you out based on a call they make to you. Do HR executives even look at the candidate resumes at all?

Would you prefer to be informed by the HR that the company is not looking for foreigners, only looking for locals or you think being in the dark is better?

She talks about the black woman experience in Malaysia. Black women tend to stick to their people, "the dating pool is limited. But for black men, the dating pool is wider."
