  1. 1. The Job Application Wall of Shame as originally found on ThoughtCatalog.com
  2. 2. “We had an [applicant] write that he was voted “campus cutey” by the girls at his university, and attached a link.” - Hyarmendacil
  3. 3. “I was hiring an admin assistant, [and] one lady’s resume said: “I am very skilled in handling administration in the correct manor.” Her resume was 5 pages of incorrectly used words. - nerdigurumi
  4. 4. “Writing their introductory paragraphs in the third person: Sally excels at Excel, and in 2005 she won an Excel competition.” - Stone-D

  6. 6. “I’ve been hiring people since 1995, and I’ve kept a “Wall of Shame” list for all the things I’ve seen. A selection: “bachelorette degree in computers” “Please let me know if I can omit you in any way” “Ecellent typist, great sppeed and accuracy. 756 wpm.” “Married, eight children. Prefer frequent travel” “It’s best for employers that I not work with people.” “I am very detail-oreinted.”’ - superkoop
