Can't imagine anyone putting these on a resume (From Will and Guy)


Unintentional yet funny gaffs from real job application forms

1. "I procrastinate, especially when the task is unpleasant."

2. "Personal interests: donating blood. Fourteen gallons so far."

3. "As indicted, I have over five years of analyzing investments."

4. "Instrumental in ruining entire operation for a Midwest chain store."

5. "Note: Please don't misconstrue my 14 jobs as 'job-hopping'. I have never quit a job."

6. "Marital status: often. Children: various."

7. "Reason for leaving last job: They insisted that all employees get to work by 8:45 am every morning. I couldn't work under those conditions."

8. "The company made me a scapegoat, just like my three previous employers.

9. "Finished eighth in my class of ten."

10. "References: none. I've left a path of destruction behind me."

Apparantly they did not like their last job or want this one either. Truth is sometimes funnier than fiction. Peace

Yep pretty stupid! I've just finished a successful job search. I had nothing like this on my resume, so I DID get the job!

I am totally guilty of number one in retired life. Was much better in business.

Very hilarious! Some people think that all employers are to blame for the mistakes of the employees.
Thanks for your visit. I didn't know Klaus very well, but I was impressed by his photos, and he organized "Sky Watch"and "that's My World". Yes he was very young.

I can't imagine seeing these on a job application, but this world is getting so screwy.
