During online job applications, why do future employees have to fill out their entire work history despite the fact that they've already allowed you to upload your resume?

Hey dude.

They have their own internal standardized systems that they use as an internal vetting tool.

Whilst in theory it seems more simple for them to work from a CV. Imagine receiving 300 CV’s for one position. With 100 different formats.

It would take a long time for them to wade through this. So rather than them do that hard work - they ask you do it instead!

I hope this helps :slight_smile:
