What the job resume is Really saying…


The JOB resume.  Now more than ever before companies big and small are getting SLAMMED with them.



And EVERY potential employer loves to get a piece of professional-sounding prose like this:






Sounds good, right? Like someone who will willingly sell their time to the ? bidder….(look, there’s no mention of a salary requirement!).  This looks to be someone who will work hard for you, bend over and kiss the ass of the office team, can accomodate your work schedule day or night – and actually seems to LIKE being a slave to a corporate boss for….again…(no mention of a salary requirement)…But…what if all the smoke and mirrors were gone from the charade – and the resume could speak? If the resume could tell you what the “perfect” employee really means by his “catch phrase” openings?  What if what the future employee meant was really more along the lines of this?






Well think of it this way – there still wasn’t any mention of salary requirement!

    That’s way above my pay-grade. EXCEPT the part about calling in drunk on mondays wich I did today.

    Isn’t that weird, Woody hitting on Todd like that? He must use the internet for finding booty calls.

    I never knew I could have been a professional spammer Indians are just cheap not spammers LOL !!

    But you know this post is pretty much what I think.

    My first job was great, my boss used to allow me to go early for fishing…he he he, I saved his arse many times. been lucky that way.

    I am so blunt that I don’t think twice before giving piece of my mind before getting fired ofcourse.

    And so now WE are freelancers LOL
