Reduction in advertising cookies?

Why do they need any advertising cookies?

Cookies that tell the site that I was the person who completed the previous page of the application form, I have no problems with that, and neither does the GDPR.

Cookies that let advertisers send ads along the lines of "I see you are looking for a job. Would you like to apply for a job as a money transfer agent laundering money for a phishing gang?" They can go in the hazardous waste bin.
