A while ago, I started a job search using Search Associates. I was trawling through online advertisements for employment. In doing so I came to realize that what may be considered great for the receivers of data entry in the form of forms is awful for people having to fill in these forms. Quite often the receiver is asking you to fill everything in that you already have in another format. Only now you are creating duplicate entries and probably doing this through a time-consuming manner. (That of separate fields)
I understand why it is done, which is because different schools want specific information. This ensures the case. However, I am using this blog as a vent for relief and vow not to make too many of these forms if I think there can be a better data collection method.
