Job Hunting Faux Pas......

Friday, June 27, 2008....

When applying online for a position, always be careful to review what you cut-n-paste as your resume before hitting the continue button.

In my case, some HR rep will quickly surmise that I'm probably not competent based upon the fact that I submitted this information as my resume:

I will not consume more than 10 units of alcohol during the reception
• I will not bring an inappropriate date to the wedding or reception
• I will not make advances towards any inappropriate male guests attending the
• I will not remove any item of my Bridesmaid outfit during the reception
• I will keep my hair and make up fresh at all times
• I will be happy and positive at all times during the wedding and reception
• I will not attempt to out-do the bride in any way

I did resubmit the application with my actual resume, but unless the HR rep has a sense of humor, I can safely assume I will not be getting a call from this Fortune 500 company for an interview.

You did NOT!!! :)

But if you did, I bet someone (or someones) got a good laugh over this.

I did! I figure if they don't call because of that, they have no sense of humor and not an employer I'd probably work for. :-)
