Adventures in hiring

So i get this resume in today, from someone who not only did not bother to personalize her cover letter, but she also sent it with long blank lines where the company name and position title would go.

It was basically a, “Dear Hiring Manager, I am interested in the _______ position with _____ company. … Thank you and I look forward to learning about ________ company’s ______ position.”

What, is it Mad Libs time? *squee!*


But that? Wasn’t the worst of it.

She spelled her company name wrong.

The word was “financial.”

To boot, I WORK in the financial field!

Yep, you’re gonna go far as an editor, sister. Something tells me you’re getting fired for your incompetence and you actually think someone else is gonna be dumb enough to hire you!
