The Job Candidate Bill of Rights

Everyone knows applying for a job sucks. But does it have to? We’ll take a look at what rights job seekers should have, what responsibilities employers should have, and how both can actually align to make looking for work feel less like, you know, work.

Job candidates have been endowed with inalienable rights, and the pursuit of happiness shouldn’t end with trying to find a job. Make your voice heard and end job applications without representation as we draft the Bill of Rights for Job Seekers.
