Woman was asked for her SAT and ACT test scores in job interview

While for jobs, we are often for our edu­ca­tion­al , work expe­ri­ence and . How­ev­er, some­thing unex­pect­ed hap­pened to a woman at a job inter­view. A asked a who has been out of col­lege for a decade for her SAT and ACT scores. Tate Morgan—who goes by @tatemmmmmmm on Tik­Tok— dis­cuss­es how she got a job offer on Linkedin in a viral Tik­Tok video.

The con­ver­sa­tion was usu­al at the begin­ning as the recruiter asked for her CV and Mor­gan said the she would send it at the end of the day. Then came the unusu­al ask, for her score­cards.

“I turn 25 next month,” Mor­gan explains. “I took the SAT 10 years ago and the way that they score the SAT now is dif­fer­ent than the way they scored it when I actu­al­ly took it.” The SAT and the ACT are tests used for the col­lege admis­sion process and schol­ar­ship grants. Many stu­dents in the U.S. take this test to get into col­leges. “I’m sor­ry. How the f*ck?” Mor­gan. She also men­tions that she has earned a degree from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Cal­i­for­nia, Berkley, which is a renowned insti­tute. The U.S. News and World Report has ranked it as the top pub­lic uni­ver­si­ty in the U.S. in 2022.

“When I applied to Berkley, cause I trans­ferred from a com­mu­ni­ty col­lege, they did­n’t even ask me for my f*cking SAT score. What the fuck?” Mor­gan added. This video inter­est­ed many Tik­Tok users and it has gained 66,000 views and hun­dreds of com­ments. Mor­gan also revealed in the com­ments sec­tion of the post that she did apply for this job and she informed them about the job was of junior lev­el than what she sought and she can­not recall her login info to get her scores now.

The sig­nif­i­cant lev­el of sup­port and the mul­ti­tude of respons­es Mor­gan received serve as a tes­ta­ment to the fact that numer­ous indi­vid­u­als have encoun­tered pecu­liar inter­view sit­u­a­tions at some point in their lives.
