A vicar from East Sussex has expressed dismay that his daughter's upcoming graduate job interview will be conducted by an AI that "will be reading the emotions on her face!"

Despite the Church of England minister's joy at his daughter's securing of her first job interview, the Rev. Paul White, the Team Rector of Rye Team Ministry, shared his "dismay that a 'robot' would be 'deciding who gets employed.'"

In a post on X, he shared, "Please join me in sharing my dismay—my daughter has her first interview for a graduate job next week, a positive development. The post has been viewed nearly 2 million times with over 1300 replies.

One user questioned why his daughter would consider such a job.

White responded, "When she applied, she wasn't aware that this would be the interview process. Like many recent graduates, she is hesitant to decline opportunities outright…"

Refusing to name the company, Rev. White explained that it was his daughter's story to tell.
