…waiting, waiting, checking my phone battery, checking my phone volume, waiting, waiting, checking my email, restarting my computer, re-checking my email, waiting, waiting… I’m hoping to hear from a great company about a fantastic job today… waiting, waiting, not breathing, waiting, waiting…

In the spirit of all things worky-worky, let’s just set you all up with some Resume Fails, shall we? Got a new collection of them, fresh out of the oven! Keep in mind, these are actual snippets from resumes that were submitted to my friend, who is the HR manager at a hoity-toity hotel in the big city. These are written verbatim for you, but names and identifying info have been changed to protect the ignorant. Anything I add will be in italics. Enjoy, and Happy Friday!
