hey @aral I watched your speech yesterday and I loved it. And you could do another one at some point regarding data and job hunting. Yesterday I was given a psychometric test during an "interview". With my name of course on it. And later on I got furious, because this is TOO private and personal data, about my mental state at the moment. (1/3)
@aral Interviews are stressful and for the past few months I've had plenty of them with the "thank you, you are rejected" follow-up and the results will probably depict my high levels of anxiety.
And I started thinking that perhaps one day you will not be able to get hired bcs these tests will have become the new “normal” procedure before even you can talk to the HR and their result go to some databank that describes you as this and that, if they don’t already. (2/3)
@ekaitz_zarraga perhaps there's a way to figure out if these tests are legal here or not but I believe that in our chaotic system they'll probably haven't even given time, thought or legislation.
@tzo in many places they are still illegal but they are done anyway because it's really hard to demonstrate they took place... :(
@ekaitz_zarraga who knows what the future will be like..
