For some reason last week, my Facebook feed was full of people complaining about the fact that it was Monday and they had to go back to work. It was a little unusual to see so many posts complaining about Monday, and I almost thought that there was an internet movement that I wasn’t aware of where everybody was supposed to say how much they hated Mondays. Poor Mondays, they never did anything wrong…
Today (also a Monday), strangely enough, I did not see a single post from anybody in my Facebook feed complaining about Monday. But then again, I was only on Facebook for about 5 minutes during my lunch break. Nevertheless, because a large segment of my readership includes HR professionals, I thought I’d share a funny HR article entitled “31 of the Stupidest Things Ever Put on a Resume” to bring some lightheartedness to our Monday. The article comes from the HR Morning website, and compiles a list of user comments from Reddit in response to a thread asking other HR professionals to share “the most ridiculous things [they've] seen on a resume.” Some gems from the article include the following resume items:
- “None of my references really like me, so please don’t believe what they say.”
- “Grate communication and atention to details”
- “Applied to Harvard” (under the education profile)
- “2.0 GPA”
- “Italian Cuisine Logistics Engineer” (he was a pizza guy)
You can see the entire list on the HRMorning.com’s website here: 31 Things… Happy Monday, everybody!
