Rejected by a computer

A worrying trend of late is when applying for a online job that you get rejected by the computer. A recent example for me was applying for a job at Barclays at Canary Wharf for a web developer. I did the initial test and all went very well. At the end of what I thought was the whole of the application, which took half an hour, it said that I was an extremely strong candidate. Further it said that my application would be shown to a human and they would get back to me. However immediately after this an email came, clearly automatically, which informed me I needed to take a few tests as a formality. After another hour of my life had passed the tests were done. I probably did well but for my all time problem of mathematics. Again, at the end of this an email arrived instantly to inform me that my application would not be taken any further. This is a disturbing trend, I am a web designer, not a mathematician. Your loss Barclays.

Beyond this is my constant desire to look at things differently and an inquisitive nature that shuns the obvious. I have also had many unusual life experiences and seen both the best and worst of people and life and work in various places and cultures in the world such as Indone…
