NotJobs: 150 Funniest Resume Mistakes Ever

14 December 2007 at 6:36AM 1 comment

Over on the JobMob page, they’re tracking the funniest resume mistakes ever. Here are my favorites from their list.

  • Under “job related skills” – for a web designer – “can function without additional oxygen at 24,000 feet”.
  • Qualifications: “I have guts, drive, ambition and heart, which is probably more than a lot of the drones that you have working for you.”
  • A resume listed a skill as “being bi-lingual in three languages” (Ask Annie’s)
  • Background: “28 dog years of experience in sales (four human).” (Resumania)
  • Education: “I have a bachelorette degree in computers.”
  • Objective: “I need money because I have bills to pay and I would like to have a life, go out partying, please my young wife with gifts, and have a menu entrée consisting of more than soup.”
  • Reason for leaving last job: “Bounty hunting was outlawed in my state.”
  • Achievements: “Nominated for prom queen”
  • Objective: “To become Overlord of the Galaxy!”

Check the whole posting out for all the horrifyingly true details.

My Core Ideas

1. "I can't tell you the best way to get a job - because there is no one best way. After 21 years of recruiting, I CAN share things I've seen candidates do to guarantee they DIDN'T get the job."

2. "Most companies don't realize how their recruiting process impacts their candidate pool, and their business. Attention to simple things will result in big improvements."
