Never Underestimate The Influence Of The Snowflake Test

 

Imagine for a moment you've just finished researching a company that has an opening for a position that seems interesting.

You've checked basic reviews on Glassdoor. Their LinkedIn feed seems pretty good.

You've perused a forum about the company on Indeed.

Even checked out Salary.com and verified that the salary range they've listed is pretty decent.

You send off your resume, cross your fingers, and hope for the best.

Now...

Place yourself in the position of the person whose received your resume. How do you manage to ensure that the person who submitted the resume to you is a good candidate once you get past the obvious?

Sure, they might meet your basic requirements, but will they fit into the corporate environment?

How can you possibly figure that out before wasting time and money bringing them on board?

Do you see the problem?

Well...

A US-based marketing company -The Silent Partner Marketing - has come to the rescue of corporate America by introducing the 'Snowflake Test' to filter out overly sensitive applicants who show the tell-tale signs of a liberal political stance.

In an interview with Fox News, CEO Kyle Reyes says he created the test to prevent this particular type of candidate from applying without them having a clue what the business does.

 

When they asked him whether or not he’s worried about potential discrimination lawsuits, he states that he sees no discrimination in this practice as it’s not much different from a mere standardized personality test.

On one hand, this kind of test makes things much easier for a company that's dealing with hundreds of applicants on a daily basis.

Reyes claims that the number of applications his company receives has decreased by 60 percent since word got out about the test. All the excitement over the Snowflake test, he says, is perhaps “because patriotic Americans are sick and tired of the sniveling, whining, entitled brats who believe that everything should be handed to them on a silver platter.

Think about this for a minute....

From the perspective of an applicant, wouldn’t you feel as if the company may have taken it too far?

The proprietor has since published the 30-question Snowflake Test in an article he himself wrote for the New Boston Post, encouraging readers to share it with other 'patriotic Americans'.

Do you think a potential employer of yours might adopt the Snowflake Test? While you make sure it’s a company you want to be part of, here are a few things that you may already have going against you.

How Not to Pass the Snowflake Test

  • Be anything less than a proud American.

  • Be against the Second Amendment.

  • Be sensitive to feedback on your work.

  • Believe the minimum wage needs to be higher.

  • Say you’ve lost faith in the police force.

  • Be anti-violence.

  • Have unusual food preferences.

  • Wear whatever you feel like wearing at work.

  • Refuse to work with the company’s client whose beliefs are deemed “controversial” or don’t align with yours.

  • Believe employees are entitled to many more regular raises and sick days than stated in the labor code.
