Overworked and Underpaid Inc Now Seeking Qualified Applicants (Photo credit: Graela)

Allegedly, these are taken from real job applications:

  • “I demand a salary commiserate with my extensive experience.”
  • “I have lurnt Word for Widows, computor operations and spreasheet progroms.”
  • “I received a plague for Salesperson of the Year.”
  • “Wholly responsible for two (2) failed financial institutions.”
  • “Reason for leaving last job: maturity leave.”
  • “Failed bar exam with relatively high grades.”
  • “It’s best for employers that I not work with people.”
  • “Let’s meet, so you can ‘ooh’ and ‘aah’ over my experience.”
  • “You will want me to be Head Honcho in no time.”
  • “Am a perfectionist and rarely if if ever forget details.”
  • “I was working for my mom until she decided to move.”
  • “Marital status: single. Unmarried. Unengaged. Uninvolved. No commitments.”
  • “I have an excellent track record, although I am not a horse.”
  • “I am loyal to my employer at all costs…Please feel free to respond to my résumé on my office voice mail.”
  • “I have become completely paranoid, trusting completely no one and absolutely nothing.”
  • “My goal is to be a meteorologist. But since I possess no training in meteorology, I suppose I should try stock brokerage.”

    I have vivinfrance to check my typos. Unfortunately she can’t come into the interviews and help me with that side of getting a job 😦

    I know I must have seen some of those when I was reviewing job applications.

    These are great, and sadly, very predictable!

    I’m stuck on ‘“I have lurnt Word for Widows”’ I wonder what that word is? 😆

    “Wholly responsible for two (2) failed financial institutions.” is not something I would brag about 😀
    I am quite tempted to add this one to my CV – “It’s best for employers that I not work with people.” – it would be safer for the employees, employers and customers.
