I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BP (Houston, TX (US)) in November 2022.
I discovered the opportunity on an online job board. I went directly to the company website and submitted an online application. About three weeks later, I received an email inviting me to complete a HireVue online video screening within 5 days. The video screening consisted of just four questions (see below). After I completed the video screening, I received an email about a week and a half later from an automated system informing me that “regretfully,” “based on the information I provided,” BP would not be progressing my application for the role further. I did some research on Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) and how companies are creating and implementing such programs in order to diversify their workforces, and I can’t help but feel that I was improperly rejected based on my gender and/or the color of my skin. Perhaps I’m not “diverse” enough for BP. This was my first experience with “video screening” and it will be my last, as I now believe that such practice invites discrimination. I have 8 years of litigation experience and my skills matched the details of the job description perfectly, yet I was not invited for an in-person interview to further discuss the opportunity. If there was a more qualified candidate than me, so be it. Being rejected by a potential employer is nothing new to me, it happens. I get it. But this rejection feels different.
