shortlisted (v) — a term used to try to convince unwitting job applicants they're not being duped into subservient working conditions.
Congratulations! You have been shortlisted as a finalist for our job opening. We don't give a shit about anything except increasing our bottom line and think a superficial step in the interview process will make you more invested in our substandard offer. We'll gauge how likely you are to accept the position based on your enthusiasm. If you sound very eager, we may even lower the salary we planned to offer you!
