honestgamer It's not all an elaborate ruse, some misguided attempt to establish for myself an online persona of dubious quality. I really am dull. If you don't find that unbearable, though, this is my blog that examines just how truly boring I can be.

Title: Hilarious resume blunders
Posted: January 10, 2008 (03:30 PM)
I generally try not to link to other blogs and such, because then they look really good and I look really stupid for not being bright enough to come up with something equally entertaining myself.

However, I'm looking for part-time work lately and sometimes I might have to put in my resume, so I saw a link to real resume blunders. I thought I'd best read it to make sure I didn't make any myself. After reading through the list, I think I'm safe, but I think all of you should read through it too:

The list starts out mildly amusing but by the end I was laughing at a near-hysterical level. Some of the stuff people have put just really made me giggle. I encourage you to read the whole list (it's not as long as the scroll bar makes you think it will be).

"Detail oreinted" pretty much sums up why I never use that line. When people make this claim on the resumes they turn in to me, I go nice and slow, taking my time looking over every little syllable.
