Resume Bloopers


A few months ago a client provided his existing cover letter for my review. The first line read: Dear Sir/Madam, please overlook my resume!

Another person came in for her appointment and explained that she sent out 49 resumes in the past two months without any calls. I commended her for her efforts in this job campaign. Then I asked: did you notice that Dufferin Street is spelled wrong? What!!! Oh no, that's probably why no one called me for an interview. I explained that the entire resume should be restructured to be competitive in today's job market. She agreed and placed her order.

A student wrote in his cover letter: 'I want to be unemployed soon because I have been unemployed for a month since I finished college'. Did you happen to notice the word unemployed appearing twice?
