Many people don’t realize how a simple letter or word can either make or break their chance at an interview.

Remember to proofread your resume or you may be on one of the lists I found on the following link:

http://jobmob.co.il/blog/funniest-resume-mistakes/

Some examples:

  • Other Interests: “Playing with my two dogs (They actually belong to my wife but I love the dogs more than my wife)”.
  • “One applicant used colored paper and drew glitter designs around the border”
  • Hobbies: “getting drunk every night down by the water, playing my guitar and smoking pot”
  • Why Interested in Position: “to keep my parole officer from putting back me in jail”
  • A woman had attached a picture of herself in a Minnie Mouse costume
  • Hobbies: “Drugs and girls”.
  • Under “job related skills” – for a web designer – “can function without additional oxygen at 24,000 feet”.
  • My sister-in-law misspelled the word “proofreading” in her skill set
  • “Received a plague for Salesperson of the Year.”
  • “Reason for leaving last job: maturity leave.”
  • “Failed bar exam with relatively high grades.”
