At one time or another, we’ve all been there: scrolling through your phone, you come across a job posting or an ad for a position that looks interesting. You click the link, and it takes you to a landing page that loads at glacial speeds. A second before you would have closed on the window and gone on with your day, the page finally loads—and it’s a mess. It’s clearly not optimized for mobile, and it’s got endless dry paragraphs of awkwardly formatted text, all in print too tiny to read.
At this point, most of us have given up, but if you soldier on you’re eventually presented with a deeply infuriating application, with no autofill functionality, no way to save, and potentially more than an hour’s worth of redundant forms to fill out.
