A lot of problems with the current job market have less to do with "Late Stage Capitalism" and just the sheer incompetence that's tolerated in HR. amirite?

Requirements aren't even real. Jobs will hire people who domt meet requirements.

Dont be scared to apply for a job just because of requirements

Yes. And that incompetence is a result of the 'profits over people' mentality. And that mentality exists as a result of capitalism.

There's a reason why HR is mostly sorority girls.

I've been unemployed for a year…dealing with hr and fake a*** recruiters is the bane of my existence.

You know what grinds my gears, tech recruiters consistently being clueless and difficult, then going and saying "I work in tech".

100 % yes. HR is a buffer, a human shield between management and workers. Their competence doesn't matter. People in HR who want to achieve something don't work in (these kinds of) HR departments for long. Incompetent or delusional or slackers stay and accumulate in these departments.

They (usually, in my experience) provide no value for the organisation as a whole, and are only there to protect management from having to deal with lay-offs, pregnancies, harassments, deaths, injuries and whatever other worldly things that are beneath them.

Having work and live in non-capitalism countries, I definitely agree.

It is even more incompetent than you can imagine.

The basic problem with HR departments is they exist to protect companies from litigation. This means their job exists to justify firing every employee, and not hiring any applicant.

HR has gotten significantly worse since work from home started. They can't do the simplest thing without making a mistake.

I've worked and lived on 3 continents and the one universal truth is that HR are the worst most incompetent morons you are ever going to come across. They wouldn't know their arse from their elbows at the best of times and at the worst well I'm surprised they can spell their own names.

I don't think it's incompetence. I think they just want experienced people to work for them at entry level salaries. They know what they are doing.

I work in HR (and agree with a good majority of what you said) but I can promise you a lot of frustration is from SEVERELY out of touch hiring managers. I always push back when a hiring manager sends me a job description that is classified as entry level with 2-5 years experience, but a lot of the times we can't change it. :/

Maybe the requirements are put there so they have a reason to offer you a lower salary than what's mentioned in the offer

You're supposed to know to lie about your experience for the entry level job.

This is not an unpopular opinion, but a well-documented fact.
