Welcome to Fun Friday! Today I'm sharing some helpful examples of what not to put on your next resume. Have a great weekend.
“Finished eighth in my class of ten.” “Received a plague for Salesperson of the Year.” “Reason for leaving last job: maturity leave.” “Failed bar exam with relatively high grades.” “Am a perfectionist and rarely if if ever forget details.” “It’s best for employers that I not work with people.” “Let’s meet, so you can ‘ooh’ and ‘aah’ over my experience.” “I have an excellent track record, although I am not a horse.” “You will want me to be Head Honcho in no time.” “I have become completely paranoid, trusting completely no one and absolutely nothing.” “Personal interests: donating blood. Fourteen gallons so far.” “Marital status: often. Children: various.” “I am loyal to my employer at all costs..Please feel free to respond to my resume on my office voice mail.” “Instrumental in ruining entire operation for a Midwest chain store.”
