I remember I was asked to help out scanning CVs for one day. I read through a CV that had included "clubbing" in their hobbies/ interests section.... I think that's not a very professional thing to add anyway, but particularly not for the ISLAMIC development bank, based out of Saudi Arabia!
Someone once started an interview with me by saying “Okay. So, just to set this straight, I did interview for another job that I’m probably going to take if I receive an offer.”
MyCrappyResume is the place for you to share your professional HR (mis)adventures, for the amusement and betterment of all cubicle-kind. Post that story of your nightmare interview, the clueless applicant, or that time you accidentally forwarded your fantasy football stats instead of your resume.
I interviewed a woman once who was hoping to get back into the workforce after a long hiatus. She brought a suitcase full of old, dusty work samples, and her closer was that she was tired of her cat and husband and couldn't wait to be around actual people again.
I was interviewing for a company. In the second interview, I had my future potential boss tell me my educational background was worthless and that my career aspirations were full of the scum sucking bottom dwellers of law schooI. I almost walked out of the interview, but I still got the job.
