What NOT To Include On Your Resume

Posted on the 10 June 2011 by Classycareergirl @classycareer
What NOT To Include On Your ResumeI thoroughly enjoyed reading your responses to the crazy things people actually did in their interviews. Since this is just too much fun, I found some unbelievable things that people have put on their resumes according to Resumania - a Robert Half monthly column.  Rest assured, they didn't get the job!!  I Hhpe this brings a smile to your Friday!! 
  • "Referees available on request."
  • "Proven ability to track down and correct erors."
  • "Experienced in all faucets of accounting."
  • "Worked party-time as an office assistant."
  • "Work history: Left job because disciplinary actions were taken for showing up late."
  • "An obsession for detail; I like to make sure I cross my i's and dot my t's."
  • "Experience with LBM-compatible computers."
  • "I am a rabid typist."
  • "I am loyal to my employer at all costs.  Please feel free to respond to my resume on my office voice mail."
  • Cover letter: "I've updated my resume so it's more appalling to employers."
  • "My compensation should be at least equal to my age."
Happy Friday everyone!!
